A dedicated and passionate musician, Kathleen Hollingsworth has been immersed in music since her childhood. She has traveled across the country accumulating degrees while performing in original music and jazz ensembles. Her unique path has allowed her to work and study with musical giants such as Phil Mattson, Fareed Haque, Michele Weir, John Medeski, Billy Martin, Terence Blanchard, Gary Lindsay, Martin Bejerano and Rhiannon. She has recently accepted the Choral/Vocal Director position at Clackamas Community College in Oregon City, Oregon and will be leading the award-winning vocal ensemble, Mainstream. Kathleen’s intentions are to continue serving humanity, creating community and beauty through music.
2017 Cascade Blues Association Muddy Award recipient Steve Kerin is a true student of the New Orleans style–his playing complex and dense, but also joyous and danceable. And his warm singing voice is suffused with an authentic New Orleans growl. He’s the real Louisiana deal, and the Northwest is richer for it.
Steve’s schedule stays busy between gigging and touring with some of the Northwest’s finest artists and his own projects, Atomic Gumbo and Berthaline & the Love Brigade. In the past he’s been on the road with Curtis Salgado, Miriam’s Well, and the Too Loose Cajun Band, and shared the stage with the likes of Trombone Shorty, The Blue Runners, Marcia Ball, and David Vest.
