Folk and Jazz Featured at Peace Concert

An assemblage of local folk and jazz musicians will congregate Saturday evening for a musical concert in Ojai.

Billed as the “Ojai Concert for Peace,” the evening features the music of Seabury Gould, Garrett King and Acoustic Medicine.

The versatile Gould sings traditional folk music of the Caribbean, Ireland, England and America.

A music teacher, Gould’s instrumental repertoire includes percussion, keyboard, bamboo flutes, harmonica and guitar.


“The concert will consist of peace . . . and contemporary songs and social commentary,” Gould said. “Being a musician and knowing these songs of peace, I feel it is important to perform publicly at this time.”

Garrett King, a widely known flutist in the Ojai area, plays a variety of contemporary jazz styles.

Eddie Guthman, Nancy Goddard and Donald Funk are Acoustic Medicine. A vocal musical group combining modern American Indian influences and the political and social aspects of folk, they call their brand of music “1990 Folk.” The trio employs a variety of instruments, rhythms and harmonies.

The concert is intended for all ages and will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. at Matilija Junior High Auditorium, 703 El Paseo Road, Ojai. Admission is $5; children 12 and under, $2.50.
