Suncrest Village to host free ‘Arts to Elders’ concert

Northwind Arts Center brings musicians Jonathan Doyle and Jake Sanders for a free concert at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 24, to at Suncrest Village, 215 S. Fifth Ave. — part of the Arts to Elders series.

Sanders and Doyle will be performing 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 in cooperation with the region’s senior care centers. The series is funded by The Rotary Club of Port Townsend and an anonymous donor.
