Showga presents: Staying cool, calm, and content! w/ Musical guest Joshua McClain

  • Starline Social Club 2236 Martin Luther King Junior Way Merced, CA, 95340 United States (map)

The theme for this event is "Staying Cool, Calm, and Content." It's summer! It's hot, it's busy, it's festive. It's easy to spin out, it's easy to become depleted. In this class we'll slow down, collect ourselves, fill our bodies with breath, and reconnect to the wonder of being alive! 

We are pleased to announce Joshua McClain as our musical guest for this Showga! Joshua McClain is a cellist and composer based in Oakland, CA. He is best known for his unbridled and mesmerizing solo cello performances which, using a looping pedal and effects processor, create intense, otherworldly soundscapes. His live show is astonishing, passionate, and simply transformative. 

Regarded as one of the top artists in the Bay Area, Joshua was voted Musician of the Year in San Francisco at the Raw Artist RAWAwards showcase in 2013. He has shared the stage with Thievery Corporation, Aj Croce, Over the Rhine, Blame Sally, Gordi, Dagmar, and others. Joshua's soundscapes are in the same vein as great filmic soundtracks - his playing is in the style of Sigur Ros, Zoe Keating, Andrew Bird, Mogwai, Kronos Quartet, and Dirty Three to name a few. Joshua has toured and performed extensively in North America as well as Germany, France, Japan, West Africa, and Argentina.
