Warming up the Fall and Winter Months


The Seldovia Arts Council’s Fall and Winter Season were a great success.

Saying good-bye to Summer, Sweet Plantain, a Latin Jazz group came from New York City to weave and synthesizethe roots of jazz from many cultures into smooth jazz pieces. This cool evening was offset by a fun ice cream social in a festive atmosphere. Many thanks to Tania and Tobben Spurklin and their crew for setting up this event and the the Alaska State Council on the Arts and Westaf for helping us to fund it.

Our Winter Series kicked off  in December with the ever popular local group Billy Goat who provided the community with  hot licks at the Sea Otter Community Center.  Surrounded by friends and family the community enjoyed a pot luck supper, smiles and Christmas time cheer, finger-licking good!

Later, in February, local Native American Flute artist, Brian Slover,  warmed up the snow-covered landscape with his artistry. Even better he brought a group of his talented young students to swap tunes and create  a musical bantering that was delightful to behold and to hear.

Much thanks goes out to Laurel Hilts for co-ordinating these winter events…
