SEQUIM — Northwind Arts Center of Port Townsend will bring musicians Jonathan Doyle and Jake Sanders to Suncrest Village in Sequim for a free concert at 2 p.m. today.
The concert at the facility at 215 S. Fifth Ave. is part of the Arts to Elders series.
Sanders and Doyle will perform swing, traditional jazz, country blues and perhaps a few waltzes.
A saxophonist, clarinetist, composer and arranger, Doyle lives in Port Townsend but grew up in and around Chicago. He said he is committed to crafting original music as well studying the American musical traditions.
Sanders is a consummate traveling musician.
A guitarist, bandleader and arranger, his musical career began in New York City at the end of the last century.
Both musicians have played on diverse stages, from busking on the street all over the world to the Grand Ole Opry, at Preservation Hall, in the back rooms and bars of the East Village, on Austin City Limits TV show, at Jazz At Lincoln Center’s Midsummer Night’s Swing, and at major festivals such as Chicago Jazz Fest, Chicago Blues Fest, New Orleans Jazz Fest, French Quarter Festival in New Orleans, Detroit Jazz Fest and Umbria Jazz Fest.
The Arts to Elders concert series is an outreach service of Northwind Arts Center at 701 Water St., in Port Townsend in cooperation with the region’s senior care centers.
The series is funded by the Rotary Club of Port Townsend and an anonymous donor.
