Katrina van Grouw & Glyn Dillon

Date: 
Sunday, May 19, 2013 - 9:00pm
Program: 

Our special guest on Inquiry tonight is Katrina van Grouw. She was the former Curator of the ornithological collections at London’s Natural History Museum. She is also a taxidermist, birder, bird bander and a fine artist. The book "The Unfeathered Bird" is a stunning collection of her unconventional drawings of birds from around the world. Most of these artworks show species of birds without feathers, many without skin and muscles. But this is not a book about bird anatomy, but rather a rich visual mediation on how birds move and live, done with deep beauty and wit.

Harvey Diamond & Jon Dreyer

Legendary pianist Harvey Diamond and bassist Jon Dreyer perform jazz standards and songs from the Great American Songbook, "honing gems...into personal statements that leave us yearning for more...Diamond is a master of both melody and harmony much like his predecessors in the legacy of jazz piano, Bill Evans and Lennie Tristano." The duo will be performing for us the evening of every 2nd Saturday of the month as well as every Saturday brunch time.  music.jondreyer.com

Her voice and intricate acoustic and electric guitar arrangements are surrounded by bass (Ellen Keng), keys, clarinet, backup vocals (Emily Arwen Mott), drums, percussion and backup vocals (Mickey Carter).
