James Lee Stanley

James Lee Stanley, humorist, guitarist, vocalist and composer will be touring in The Pacific Northwest to support his latest CD’s, “Had Enough Yet” and the new live CD, “Alive At Last”

He will be performing selections from all 32 of his CD’s and has created new monologues as well as bringing the requested favorites with him.

His solo guitar orchestrations coupled with his supple voice and remarkably quick wit, guarantee an evening full of entertainment, joy, pathos, melancholy, birth control and gourmet tips.

As he refers to himself, he is the “perpetual peregrinator and the purveyor of persiflage”  …who could resist that?

Gather Round: True Stories Told Live

Join Bellingham's monthly forum for people who love a good story. If you haven't been with us before, here's the scoop: Gather Round is inspired by The Moth, the New York based non-profit dedicated to "true stories told live." We believe that nothing binds a community together like shared stories. Our format is Open Mic: prospective tellers prepare a story based on the evening’s theme and submit their names before the show starts. Our rules are simple: 

1. Stories must be true and personal, that is, they must relate something that actually happened, and that directly affected the teller. 
2. Stories must be told, not read -- they must be performed without notes.
3. Stories last approximately 5-8 minutes. 

We're committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for all sorts of stories to be shared. Funny stories, sad stories, stories about small triumphs or epic defeats; stories about friends, about families, about the search for love or justice; stories about the human condition and how we cope with it on any given day. Come tell us a story, or just sit back and listen as others share theirs.

One more thing: our space is small and seating is limited -- come early to get a good spot!

Havilah Rand

Havilah is an award winning singer songwriter who has recently relocated to Bellingham, WA after an eleven year stint in the acclaimed Live Music Capital of the World Austin, TX . Her musical journey spans five full length albums and two decades weaving its way through the jazz halls of New York City, the alternative rock venues of post grunge Seattle and countless coffeeshops and theaters across the United States And Europe. Her unique brand of melodically lush, groove infused Americana is mulled in poetic lyricism born of adventure, self exploration and artistry at its most poignant. Havilah is also the founder of Holistic ArtVentures, an organization that uses songwriting as a tool for bolstering creativity and confidence and preserving the oral history of our elders. Through various songwriting programs, Havilah has written songs with hundreds of children and elderly and is planning a 2018 release that features selected pieces from these projects.

Johann Wager

Their collaborative work lead to their song “Suitcase Full of Sparks”  being featured on NBC's show, The Blacklist. He has been dubbed “A number one best bet” by the Austin American-Statesman, The Dallas Morning News has called him “A Texas folk music staple”, and the Austin Chronicle gives his album "The Runaway Kid" a perfect "Four Stars" and refers to Wagner as "A commander of words and Ideation" and awarded him with the Austin Chronicle's pick for best Local Singer Songwriter for 2014.
