The Run Downhill Daughter Chautauqua comes to life in April for Vol. 5 – DUST, at HM157. The Daughter Chautauqua combines music, literature, art and film, alongside lecture and discussion, designed to bridge the gap between entertainment and lifelong education. Focusing on core values of inclusion and social transparency, the show has left audiences buzzing with excitement, steeped in contemplation, and ready for more!
At the center of the Daughter Chautauqua program is Run Downhill’s folk-inspired, narrative-driven music performed masterfully by musicians Colin Burgess, Nate LaPointe, Tom Moose, and T.J. Troy. For this month’s installment, special musical guests include Dimitris Mahlis performing Turkish oud and percussion duets with host T.J. Troy; and Warm Climate, Los Angeles-based experimental indie rock band!
A very special feature of this month’s show is a phone-in conversation with Washington State horticulturalist Jake Gutzwiler; Jake is part of a multi-generational family of apple and cherry orchardists from Wenatchee, WA. In a live broadcast phone interview, we’ll talk with Jake about current issues surrounding the food and farming industry.
Run Downhill’s music is cross-contextualized with comic book art and narrative: each RDh Daughter Chautauqua program features the premiere of a new Song Comic. Written by resident storyteller John Castlerock, and illustrated by Quinn Salazar, these gritty stories of loss and redemption come to life in video form, accompanied live by Run Downhill’s dark and lingering melodies.
Simultaneously classic and innovative, the Run Downhill Daughter Chautauqua combines real music with real ideas, challenges the audience’s perspective, and provides a wonderful alternative to live music in Los Angeles. This program is presented in conjunction with HM157, one of Los Angeles’ premiere event and performance spaces.
