Mrs. Phelps is a roots and soul leaning group of young local musicians. The band is built around two cousins that have been playing professionally since they were in the 4th and 5th grades respectively. Now as 9th and 10th graders they are relative veterans of the local scene. Clare Molloy sings with surprising authority and her cousin Kate plays with a technical and stylistic control not often seen in a musician of her years.

Join us on Sunday evenings for the 2021 South Hudson Music Project Staycation Festival, featuring live solo and duo performances by Seattle based musicians and improvisers.
On April 25th, hear Seattle pianists perform from Wayne Horvitz’ book of compositions for young pianists entitled Little Pieces for the Piano. Originally published in 2013, a new edition was published in late 2020 with 40 new pieces, all written in the first two months of the pandemic.
Wayne Horvitz is a composer, pianist and electronic musician. He is the 2016 recipient of the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, the NEA American Masterpieces Award and three MAP Fund awards. He has been commissioned by the Kronos Quartet, The icicle Creek Trio, The Seattle Symphony, BAM and The Kitchen among others. He is collaborated with, among others, Bill Frisell, Robin Holcomb, Gus Van Sant, John Zorn, and Butch Morris. He appears on over 300 CDs, 30 as a leader.
“The pages of Little Pieces fairly leap with inventiveness and ingenuity. Each miniature—all but handful are a single page in length—has a distinct character and an irresistible rhythmic vitality…. Horvitz’s pieces consistently resist cliché in every regard.” – Clavier Companion
