Jeremy Wallace Trio
Saturday, October 28th, 2017
Doors Open at 6:30
Saturday October 28, 2017 at 6:30pm The Jeremy Wallace Trio will perform live at the KAC. General Admission $18, KAC Members $15.
Edgy, dangerous and with a great emphasis on the raw energy of his craft, Wallace emerges with a stunning sound with a little folk, a tinge of rock, some country, and loaded with gritty blues.
His collection of songs are a reflection of Wallace’s station in life: he has fallen in and out of love again, busted a few knuckles and bruised a couple of shins. Even though his loyal following will notice a certain wistfulness in the lyrics, they will also recognize a new confidence in Wallace’s voice and guitar. His humor has gotten a little darker and the sound a little looser.

“Folk music is storytelling.” – Ben Hunter
The duo Ben Hunter & Joe Seamons have been playing together for over five years and they’ve got a lot of stories to tell you.
Classically trained on the violin since age 5, Ben Hunter tried his hand at the fiddle for the first time as an adult. Growing up in Arizona via Zimbabwe and Lesotho, Ben draws musical inspiration from his unique experiences.
Joe Seamons grew up in the backwoods of Northwest Oregon, listening to local folk music played by sawmill workers, loggers and fishermen whose music reflected the character of the region. While they’ve got very divergent life stories, they due combine for an amazing acoustic blues set you’ll not want to miss.

QoR retains the best qualities of traditional watercolors while expanding the range and versatility of each color. QoR‘s exclusive binder provides more pigment in every brushstroke, offering a strength, range and versatility unmatched in the history of watercolors.
The unique QoR formulation accentuates the luminosity and brilliance of pigments even after drying. It provides the subtlety, transparency and flow of a great watercolor, with colors that have as much vibrancy and fire as the best acrylic or oil paint.
QoR [pronounced ‘core’] has been formulated to embody the essence of watercolors while offering these unique qualities:
- Vibrant, intense colors that stay brilliant even after they dry
- Exceptionally smooth transitions, flow and liveliness on paper
- Excellent resolubility in water and glazing qualities
- Vivid depth of color with each brushstroke
- Greater resistance to cracking and flaking
- More density of color than traditional watercolors
- Exclusive Aquazol® binder used in conservation
