The Silent Life is an ideal and way of being noted by Hazrat Inayat Khan in the book “The Mysticism of Sound and Music.” Shawn Myers, drummer, composer, and band leader, invites different musical members into this project to create and explore these ideals. Accompanied by Ian McArdle on keyboard, Josh Collins on guitar, Dylan Johnson on bass, and Anthony Donatelli on the saxophone, Myers will explore the cosmic language of music at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art.
Raised in Los Osos, Myers now calls New Orleans his home, where he collaborates on many musical projects including Leyla McCalla (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Haitian Voudou Music led by Master Damas “Fanfan” Louis, Nutria, Bryce Eastwood Band and others.
Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at 7 PM. An opportunity to visit with the musicians and enjoy light refreshments follows the one-hour performance. Tickets are $20 general seating, available online, by phone at (805) 543-8562, or at the door.
