Events

Ludi Hinrichs | Loss, Remembrance, and Emergence

Ludi Hinrichs will perform an evening of his new compositions on solo piano, trombone, and other instruments on Wednesday, November 30, 2016. The Stone Hall at the Miners Foundry is especially vibrant when the Estonia grand piano fills the room.  The concert will be recorded for a future album and will be an exploration of his recent loss of his wife, and his musical emergence into the heart of renewal. Tickets are $20 for Adults and $10 for Children under 18.  Tickets will be available at the door.  Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the music begins at 7:30 p.m.  For more information, call (530) 292-3112.

A Personal Message from Ludi…

“The experiences of the last year and a half since the passing of my wife, Karen, have had a profound effect on me. I would like to share the passion, healing and emergence resulting in these new compositions that have come through while sitting at the piano or with other instruments I ‘talk’ through.  The works run the full spectrum from shock and despair to the feeling of being fully alive and ecstatic, reflecting both the inner and outer shifts and changes which were inevitably experienced. I feel great reverence for this deep process and gratitude for my wife, Karen, and all she brought to our lives.”

Catherine Stifter, Capitol Public Radio producer of Saving the Sierra says of Hinrichs:

“Ludi is of course a musical genius. He composed a whole suite of music for a radio documentary I created a decade ago. His sonic vision made the show magical. So much of of that music was created in the moment, in collaboration, in response to stories. I can’t wait for this show. Thank you Ludi for pouring your heart out.”

Ludi Hinrichs is a composer/performer from Nevada City who has performed with Terry Riley, Gary Snyder, and Chuck Berry. He is inspired by pianists Keith Jarrett, Thelonious Monk, and the Serbian composer Goran Brejovic. He leads his own groups, Chicken Bonz, Kairos, and The Ludi Hinrichs quintet.

The Gift of the Wave

Wednesday, November 29th at 7:30 PM, doors open at 6:30

Tickets at Briar Patch or at the door $18/20

Join us at the Foundry for an intimate, café like setting for an evening of new compositions, Sufi poetry, and sound waves for grand piano, voice, large gong, didjeridu, and trombone. Special guest Joe Fajen-tabla and trombone- will join Ludi on several numbers. The two will perform in the Stone Hall. Hors D’ouvres from Java John’s, and beer and wine will be available.

“This is a quiet pocket of time between the holidays, we have this space to settle, to reflect a bit, and to pause, “ says Ludi.

The going in to the heart, the experience of loss and renewal, the returning light of the upcoming Winter solstice are some of the themes Ludi will thread together in the Stone Hall.  Expect to hear a variety of sounds and cultural sources, including poetry, a trombone piece from Bach, the jazz of Thelonious  Monk, North Indian Raga, didjeridu, Balinese gamelan and the healing sounds of the Earth-Sun gong.

“Joe Fajen, long time friend and collaborator, is a joy to work with. He brings his expertise, enthusiasm and humor to the stage and delights me as a multitalented performer on tabla, trombone, and percussion.”
