John Hosking

Singer and Songwriter. After 33 years of touring original theater throughout the greater Northwest, and often providing live music on stage, John has found the chance to explore and develop his own poetry and music. His songs transcend strict genre, roaming between folk, classic one-man-and-guitar western, melodic jazz, and Latin rhythms. Some songs are quite recently conceived and others were formed a while back. His soon-to-be-released album, “Wide Open Door”, will contain many of the tunes from this evening's performance—songs about people and life, with a lot of love and caring.

Linda Svendsen Mike Parsons

The duo of Linda Svendsen and Mike Parsons of Bozeman, Montana. From Oregon, Linda came to music while riding on the steppes of Central Asia, listening to the singing of nomads, and from Idaho, Mike is a fiddle champion and in-demand fixture on the music scene throughout the Rockies. They have been performing together for ten great years, playing bluegrass, old-timey, and down home country music. Part bluegrass, part country, part honky-tonk – the best of good time music with dazzling instrumentals and gorgeous harmonies.
Genre: Country, Americana, Bluegrass

Tom Robison

A fiddler, violinist, violist and harp player who believes that music creates a bond between all ages, races, nationalities, and religions. He believes that music is a well of pure water that provides rejuvenation and love, hope and kindness, and it needs to be replenished continually by new musicians learning it.
For more than 25 years Tom has been director of Singing Strings Studio in Bozeman, Montana, where he enjoys teaching fiddle, violin, viola and harp to students of all ages. He gets a thrill from every lesson! Folk music is Tom's passion, including Irish music, Scottish music, ragtime, and old-time blues.

Marla Goodman

Marla Goodman will perform experimental and classical works on the Theremin, an electronic instrument that is played without being physically touched. Goodman began appearing in Bozeman as a street performer and more recently began performing classical and experimental works in public spaces and arts venues. Her experimental works add harmonic accompaniment to environmental sounds such as birdsong, construction noise, airplanes or the drone of an electric toothbrush. A lifelong resident of Bozeman, Goodman holds a BA in painting from MSU's School of Art. She recently returned to MSU to study music technology, performance and theory, studying with violinist Mary Kothman. Goodman also participates in the international Theremin community, studying via webcam with German-born Thereminist Carolina Eyck and Russian-born Thereminist Lydia Kavina.
The Theremin consists of three radio frequency oscillators which control pitch and volume via the proximity of the musician's hands to two antennae (one for volume, one for pitch). The instrument was invented c. 1919 by Russian engineer Lev Termen. Virtuosa Clara Rockmore and others made magnificent orchestral appearances on the Theremin throughout the first half of the 20th century, but the instrument's haunting, voice-like sound became most recognized as a sound effect in 1950s science fiction films. Celebrating its centennial in 2020, the Theremin is once again appreciated for its extraordinary and beautiful sound.
