Our guest is Bonnie Kane, musician and curator of The Thursday Experiment, a monthly series of music performances, at Gateway City Arts, showcasing practitioners of improvisation and experimental music, using traditional and non-traditional acoustic, electronic, electric, mechanical instruments and sources.
Celebrating its second anniversary, with session 24 on Thursday, December 20, 2018, Bonnie invites everybody in the community to join the Thursday Experiment and experience it either as audience or participating in the jam session, where you can bring your own instrument and play.
On this session we talked about the concept, and its importance for learning experiences, community building, and an alternative to enjoy of unique sounds and music, and staying local, in the Holyoke downtown area.
