| May 1, 2013

christianhowes-3COSHOCTON – How fitting to this year’s Dogwood Festival theme “NO PLACE LIKE HOME” to hear two father-daughter duos– home grown musicians in the most literal sense. And we’ll present them in an open door, homey way in the center of Coshocton during First Fridays on May 3 from 5 – 8 p.m. in the Park Space at 317 Main Street. Walk by, stop, sit down, stay, eat, have a beer if you’re 21 or older. Coshocton SportZone will be grilling.

As an educator, performer and composer, Jazz Violinist, Christian Howes has gained great notoriety and respect from critics and players alike. Christian was a favorite of the late Les Paul, with whom he worked for 11 years. Here’s what Les Paul said about Howes “It used to be you could hardly find a good jazz violinist. Nowadays there are four or five really good players, but there is nobody better than this guy”

Christian’s daughter Camille may still be in high school, but her knowledge of improvisation, theory, and musicality allows her to perform at a level that may rival many music school graduates. Feeding off the energy and virtuosity of her father, Camille compliments Christian in a way which can only be heard in person.

Bobby & Laura Dotson, father-daughter come out of the local appalachian tradition. They are members of the exceptionally talented musical Dotson family and will be first up on the PARK space platform.

The event is presented by the Pomerene Center for the Arts and is free and open to the public. Table reservations are being accepted with a donation by email, [email protected] or by phone 740.622.0326
