Arts & Culture

Engage with local singer/songwriters in a hands-on presentation by Tomo Nakayama, Town Hall’s new Artist in Residence. Nakayama will be joined by Kevin Murphy of The Moondoggies; Hanna Benn of Pollens; and Grant Olsen of Gold Leaves and Arthur&Yu. After playing new songs, they’ll discuss individual components, lyrics, and chords. What’s in a song? What makes a chord work? Find out with these local musicians, share your own insights, and learn more about the creative process. Then, they’ll share the stage with the audience for an open mic, inviting you to play some of your own creations. The open mic portion will be limited to 30 minutes, so please arrive early to sign-up if you’re interested in playing. Following the event, head over to Capitol Cider for a special after-party with Nakayama and others.

Presented by: Town Hall, as part of the Arts & Culture series and In Residence program. Sponsored by A&PSpecial sponsorship support for Tomo Nakayama’s residency has been generously provided by Capitol Cider.
