Look at the Harlequins! Release Show & Audubon Benefit
January 11 • 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm• $5
Seldom on a winter’s night in Oregon can a birder rack up a checklist of more than thirty species in a single hour. But that’s exactly what listeners have in store for them on January 11th, when the Lane County Audubon Society presents singer-songwriter Stephan Nance at Eugene Piano Academy for the release of their latest, birdiest record, Look at the Harlequins!
Stephan’s music has drawn comparisons to basically any singer who ever played a piano Regina Spektor, Ben Folds, Tori Amos but truly occupies a niche of its own, one where the word bird just doesn’t cut it. In Overwintered, a suspenseful song inspired by visits to Klamath Falls, Stephan alludes to the wick-a call of a Northern Flicker. Another new track, Reverse Nature Shock, describes the return of an itinerant Song Sparrow after touring Japan, with references to hashibuto and hashiboso garasu (Large-billed and Carrion Crows).
Attendees will be encouraged to keep track of the birds on a checklist in the program. Vegan cupcakes will be provided by Cornbread Café.
