Hallie Hudson

Hallie Hudson

Hallie Hudson is a familiar name around Homer, and has played her fair share of concerts at Bunnell over the years to raise funds for her tuition at Idyllwild School in California. This talented young woman, who began her musical education in Homer, is studying jazz vocals and composition.
Hudson will perform again at Bunnell on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. A $15  donation is suggested, but the show will be offered as a “pay as you can” event. All proceeds from the concert will again go toward Hudson’s tuition.

Concert to benefit Artist in the Schools
Jewel Kilcher will play the Mariner Theatre at 7:30 p.m. Aug.19. Doors open at 7 p.m., with tickets available at Bunnell. Time Easton and Atz Lee Kilcher will open for Jewel. Downward Dog will provide sound. The concert will benefit Bunnell’s Artist in Schools Program.
The Artist in Schools program is sponsored and administered by Bunnell with the support of the Alaska State Council on the Arts and is one of the few independent AIS programs in Alaska.

Foot-stomping good time
Nationally touring indie folksinger Raina Rose, of Austin, Texas, is spending August in Alaska, including an 8 p.m. show on Aug. 13 at the Down East Saloon. Having just released her third solo album, “End of Endless False Starts,” to rave reviews, Rose has been touring the Lower 48 for the last four years. , and this is her first venture into the great state of Alaska.
Rose is a boot-stomping singer/songwriter who will bring her sound to Alaska for the first time with this tour. She sings Americana-folk songs of long travels, fictional characters, time that plays tricks and the tricks that governments play with a biting honesty.
Rose lets that southern flavor sink in and now serves a brave and heartbreaking brew of fingerpicking, flat-picking, and fresh-voiced stories.
