Groovy Wallpaper is Skip vonKuske (Portland Cello Project, Vagabond Opera, Cellotronik) and Don Henson (Sneakin Out, The Adequates, The Druthers, Kathryn Claire). Skip is Portland’s foremost cellist and Don is known for his Rube Goldberg-like percussion set up and performance. To call them a cello and percussion duo would fall far short of the mark.
Kathryn Claire has asserted herself in a new generation of traditionally-inspired musicians. Her fiddle-playing exhibits a technical grace which is matched only by her truly captivating voice and she possesses the rare ability to move seamlessly across genres. Her deep love and respect for traditional music has long been a driving influence and those roots can be heard in her own original music.
Early classical training on the violin naturally gave way to her own creative inclinations. While still a teenager, Kathryn taught herself guitar in order to explore her own voice as a songwriter. She has since spent years cultivating her unique style and approach to music as a violinist, singer, and songwriter.
Performing is a truly joyful experience for Kathryn Claire, and her love of music is evident every time she takes the stage. Strong fundamentals from her classical background combined with an innate ability to improvise and a keen sense of harmony has made her a sought after collaborator and allowed her to work in a wide range of genres.
