As the country begins to re-open, we are planning in-person, socially distanced events where our communities can unite and heal each other from the harm too many of us experience at the hands of law enforcement. Join us August 3 at Jordan park's SouthWest Pavilion from 6-9 pm for #NOSL21 to reimagine a world beyond police or prisons and to celebrate the many ways we keep each other safe.
Flexible, lightweight, strong, biocompatible, and water-resistant. A material with all of these properties can mean life-changing medical devices, protective equipment, and even building materials. But who came up with this super product? Spiders! Can you imagine trying to farm spiders, which eat each other and yield relatively small quantities of silk? This is where spider silk expert, Justin Jones, comes in. Join us for a live Q&A with this USU researcher and professor to learn about how his lab is creating synthetic spider silk through the use of transgenic goats, bacteria, alfalfa, and even silkworms! Dr. Justin A. Jones is an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at Utah State University. Dr. Jones received his Ph.D. degree in biology from Utah State University in 2015. He has worked with spider silk and its recombinant forms since 1998 while attending the University of Wyoming.
This event is part of Antelope Island Spider Fest 2021! Join us through Facebook live on the Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter Facebook page. Facebook Live Link: https://fb.me/e/1dDlmefbY
David Burchfield writes Americana that swaggers wildly through raw emotion within a meticulously written and arranged package. With connections to his indie folk, classic country, and bluegrass roots, Burchfield carves a unique path in the folk-rock world with his powerful 5-piece, the Fire Guild. American Songwriter has said: "This type of solid songcraft would make Burchfield fit right in on a bill with the likes of Lucinda Williams or Jason Isbell." Burchfield’s literate lyrics meet emotive grace in nods to Jason Isbell, Mandolin Orange, and David Ramirez. There is a powerful candor in Burchfield’s writing – raw, emotive, and rich with details that bring the listener right into the scene of his passion. Critics have called his 5-piece band, David Burchfield & the Fire Guild, akin to “the Band meets the Stray Birds” – equal parts all out roots rock party and sensitively arranged balladry. www.davidburchfieldmusic.com

Our programs range from high-energy swing dance to lush beautiful ballads. The Night Star Jazz Orchestra repertoire is comprised of modern and traditional jazz big band orchestrations. The classic sound of the studio orchestra is brought to life by the lush orchestrations that used a string section and evokes the sounds of the Hollywood sessions from the 50s and 60s. Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Anita O’Day, Joe Williams, Peggy Lee all sang with bands that featured great arrangers and beautiful music. We strive to bring the essence of those bands and artists back to the stage. We also feature contemporary arrangements from current writers working in the music business today.
