CONGREGATION BETH SHALOM

Back by popular demand, local singer-songwriters Amber Ikeman and John Hosking provide an evening of acoustic guitar, rich vocals, and original work at 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 18, at Congregation Beth Shalom in Bozeman. The musicians will once again perform a mix of their own work, tributes and duets.
 
Hosking is regionally known for the original music he wrote and performed while directing and acting in the Vigilante Theatre Company. Since 2005, Hosking has expanded his repertoire of original folk and Americana. Fans appreciate his new work and the freedom he’s found in developing his own unique sound. His diverse lyrics call to mind familiar mountain ranges, nights by the campfire and plenty of adventures on the road. 
 
Known for her soulful vocals and raw lyrics, Ikeman is a contemporary folk singer-songwriter with classical voice and musical theater training.  Her latest album “Free” was co-produced with Chris Cunningham in 2015 and is rich with the storytelling songs she’s known for. Her lyrics are both gritty and sweet, inspired by 30,000 miles of road tripping as a touring musician over the past two years. 
 
While still frequently touring, Ikeman is putting down roots in Bozeman and offering classical voice training to local students. She will showcase one of her voice students, Kathryn Isley, in a short performance and free vocal master class demonstration prior to the concert. 
 
Ikeman’s master class demonstration begins at 6:15 p.m. Doors open for the main concert at 6:45 p.m. with music beginning at 7 p.m. 
 
Congregation Beth Shalom is located at 2010 West Koch St. in Bozeman. For more information about the concert or the vocal master class demonstration, email amber@amberikeman.com.
