The Sky and Ocean Aren’t the Only Way to See Inspiring Blues in Laguna in 2024

Andrew Synowiec (Band)

Nearly 20 years ago, Grammy-winning artist Andrew Synowiec (‘Sin-o-wik) drove 2,700 miles west to Los Angeles with nothing but a few demo CDs, a couple guitars and one phone number for a possible lead on studio work. Today, with his collection of nearly 100 stringed instruments, Synowiec has become Hollywood’s go-to guitarist, contributing to countless Oscar, Emmy and Grammy-winning projects. As a solo artist, his first full-length release Second Story received wide-ranging airplay and praise from notable fans such as Steve Vai and Jay Graydon. His new album FUN was recorded by long-time Rick Rubin collaborator Jim Scott (Foo Fighters, Tedeschi Trucks, Tom Petty, Wilco, Joe Satriani) and features Gary Novak (Chick Corea/Alanis Morissette), Jorgen Carlsson (Government Mule), Carey Frank (Tedeschi Trucks) and Pete Korpela (Josh Groban). The album debuts on September 8th and will be followed by a West Coast tour in November.

The Earth Speaks

An Interactive Writing Workshop Celebrating the Earth’s Lost Language, facilitated by Bestselling Poet & Author Dorothy Randall Gray.

The Earth has begun to express itself with an increasingly dramatic vocabulary of droughts, floods, tornados, hurricanes, record breaking heat waves and more. Are we listening? How have you been impacted by its voice? How can we create words that connect and reflect its Mother tongue? In this multi-genre workshop, they will explore the world around and inside us as you are inspired by Joni Mitchell, Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, Greta Thunberg, Dame Judi Dench, Mary Oliver and Wangari Maathai.
