Sounds From Home

“Sounds from Home,” an online music series sponsored by Spearfish United Methodist Church, features South Dakota musicians who invite us into their worlds to share music and stories.
 
We begin the New Year with a very special video recorded in Sioux Falls during December 2020 by the highly acclaimed jazz quintet, JAS; saxophonist Joel Shotwell, trumpeter Jim Speirs, bassist Andrew Reinart, pianist Jeffrey Paul, and percussionist Daniel Heier. The first part of this event is a creative retelling of the musical story of birds from their recent album, Bird Ritual Interrupted (2019 – Different Folk Records), enriched with puppets created by Sarah Langenfeld and her puppet production team of Jordan Deffenbaugh and Skye Giebink. The band completes this special “Sounds from Home” with their arrangements of a favorite melody by Ralph Vaughn Williams and “A Healthy Dose,” by Andrew Reinartz. This performance received the generous support of the South Dakota Arts Council through the Touring Arts Program.
 
You may enjoy their performance any time after 3:00 p.m. on Friday January 15, 2021 by following this link.
