Friday Night Jazz - Pamela Rose
4:00pm - 8:30pm

Together, Rose’s soulful singing and De La Cruz’s inspired keyboard wizardry lift the Hammond Organ Party into the stratosphere of swinging jazz standards and classic R&B grooves. From the bluesy swing of the Isley’s Nobody But Me to the melodic strains of Harry Warren’s September In The Rain, to the funky shuffle of Little Walter’s My Babe, the Hammond Organ Party brings it all back home. This evening, Pamela adds holiday tunes to her repertoire.

In the event of rain, Jazz will be held inside DIESEL Bookstore. Food from MCM restaurants will be allowed in the store.

At DIESEL, A Bookstore: Gary Snyder and Peter Goin discuss and sign "Dooby Lane"
3:00pm

DIESEL, A Bookstore in Larkspur proudly welcomes Gary Snyder and Peter Goin to the store to discuss and sign their new book, Dooby Lane: Also Known as Guru Road, a Testament Inscribed in Stone Tablets by Dewayne Williams, on Saturday, December 10th, at 3:00pm.

If left alone, what might a place say? If we must leave it, what must we leave behind?

Guru Road, Dooby Lane. It was in this place where, nearly twenty years ago, Gary Snyder discovered, considered, and chronicled such latitudinal ruminations by way of one man, DeWayne Dooby Williams, and the coalesced stories and tributes which Williams faithfully etched upon granite, his elected canvas. When Snyder and his wife, Carole, were camping along the Black Rock playa, northwest of the Great Basin and northeast of the town of Gerlach, they deviated from their journey down a paved path to explore a little dirt road. This spontaneous decision led Snyder to this remarkable text of life and spirit: to Williams who, retired and living with cancer, was creating the testament of a lifetime that would transcend corporeal measures and touch the lives of countless people in endless moments for many years to come. 

DeWayne Williams created this work of Earth Art in the Black Rock desert, near the current site of the Burning Man gathering. This full-color book presents a series of photographs by Peter Goin, accompanied by the prose and poetry of Gary Snyder.

Gary Snyder is the author of sixteen collections of poetry and prose. Since 1970 he has lived in the watershed of the South Yuba River in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1975, Snyder has also been awarded the Bollingen Poetry Prize and the Robert Kirsch Lifetime Achievement Award. His 1992 collection, No Nature, was a National Book Award finalist, and in 2008 he received the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize. Snyder is a poet, environmentalist, educator, and Zen Buddhist. 

Peter Goin has been travelling to Black Rock for more than 30 years. His examinations of scenery are sensitive and keen; his exploratory eye is poignantly archival. Goin was selected as an Emmy finalist for his program In Search of Ritual: The Burning Man in 1994. In 2005, Goin collaborated with celebrated geographer Paul F. Starrs to coauthor the book Black Rock in which they explore this unusual terrain from the viewpoints of their respective disciplines. Alongside Lucy Lippard, Goin coauthored Time and Time Again: History, Rephotography, and Preservation in the Chaco World, which was selected by the Pima Public Libraries in Arizona as a Southwest Book of the Year for 2013. His renowned photographs have been exhibited in more than fifty museums, nationally and internationally, and he is the recipient of two National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships. 

Copies of Dooby Lane will be available for sale at the event

Cirque de Noël
5:15pm
A family highlight of Marin Country Mart's holiday festivities before Christmas is the return of Cirque de Noël, featuring an original story exclusively for Marin Country Mart.
 
Full of enchantment, thrill and wonder, Le Cirque de Bohème has delighted kids and adults for years. Founded by Frenchman Michel Michelis, his circus company, Le Cirque de Bohème, was created 12 years ago in Paris and moved to California seven years ago. The goal of Monsieur Michelis - an eclectic artist, author, singer, actor, and interpreter - is to present the joy and mystery of a Parisian-style circus of the 1920s, with its mix of theater, music and circus sets. Some of this year's artists, who hail from the Bay Area, France and Germany, have performed in circuses for over 30 years. 
 
All tickets are  $25. However, because space is limited in the tent, all attendees must have a ticket, available here at Brown Paper Tickets.
 
 
The Cirque de Noël performances are one night only!
 
December 23
5:15-6:30 pm,  and
7:30-8:15 pm.
 
TICKETS SOLD AT THE DOOR, IF AVAILABLE.
Friday Night Jazz - The Singer & The Songwriter
5:30pm - 8:30pm

Rachel Garcia grew up listening to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, Elvis and Michael Jackson. At a young age, her love of music was nurtured by performing in choirs. Her rich and nuanced vocal style draws inspiration from female vocalists old (Ella Fitzgerald, June Christy, Mama Cass) and new (Fiona Apple, Laura Mvula, Melody Gardot, and Cecile McLorin Salvant). Thu Tran’s songwriting merges traditional styles with modern pop sensibilities. He draws inspiration from the Bossa Nova sounds of Antonio Carlos Jobim, the swinging jazz guitar of Django Reinhardt, and the lyricism of modern songwriters like Sufjan Stevens and Rufus Wainwright. In 2012, the duo won the West Coast Songwriters International Song Contest in the Miscellaneous category.

In the event of rain, Jazz will be held inside DIESEL Bookstore. Food from MCM restaurants will be allowed in the store.

Holiday Craft: kids make Candy Cane Hotchocolate in the courtyard.
