"An Intimate Evening of Love Letters" at 7:00 pm

February has us thinking about Love in all it's many forms. In a world that has turned almost paperless and where so many people have not known themselves "loved" on a piece of paper, we're diving in with stationary and pen to share appreciation and love. Join Barb Beck as she guides us into expressing our love in written form. Please bring paper and pen.

Lauri Jones is a multi-dimensional artist with a diverse professional background, having performed in regional theatres, jazz clubs, pop and dance bands, on cruise ships, and as a back-up singer on a variety of major label recordings. She holds a Masters in Music from the Boston Conservatory.

Over the past several years, Lauri has been primarily focused on performing and writing music that reflects her deepening spirituality, in large part thanks to the teachings and community of New Thought Center for Spiritual Living. After a wonderfully supported Kickstarter campaign, she released her first studio album in that realm ("Walk Your Life") in 2015, joining forces with partner and co-producer Eric Montgomery, with whom she also has a piano/percussion/vocal duo called Montgomery Jones.

Lauri is currently celebrating the release of her 2nd inspirational album "Watch Love Rise", a collection of mostly live performances (captured right here at NTCSL) with an eye on love, compassion, and unity in these particularly trying and divisive times. She has been enjoying sharing her music in spiritual centers and a variety of other venues, conferences, and retreats in the greater Pacific Northwest and beyond. Lauri also has an album from her cruise ship days called "Have You Met Miss Jones", a collection of jazz/cabaret tunes from her one-woman show of the same name.

Musician

Michael Mandrell is an artistic and passionate contemporary American fingerstyle guitarist with an ear for the creative side of the world fusion genre. His orchestral compositions offer equal parts world and new age, an array of middle Eastern rhythms and scales, with tinges of folk and an infusion of Celtic overtones.

He is one of those rare artists who has a strong sense of his Western musical roots, yet can make beautiful and sophisticated forays into the music of the East. Michael's guitar playing is extraordinary. His tunes are lyrical—the stuff fairy tales are made of. They are slightly jazzy, seductively smooth and consistently beautiful. His intricate fretboard work and technique reflect an artist of vast creativity and a pan-global vision of the instrument he loves.
