Celestial Navigation Performance on Saturday in Bellingham

In music , as in life, it's difficult to set out on a seperate and personal path.

First you have to choose a direction, one based on personal skills and interests.

Then you need to find helpers, friends who share your interests and want to join you in your explorations.

And there are always the usual rocks and gullies to navigate around, wrong turns and other complications.  It takes time and hard work and the most difficult part (for me at least) an unshakable focus towards the job in hand.

But when you ultimately succeed a creation is born that is unique, an out of the ordinary experience for the listener.

In my opinion Celestial Navigation is on this path and has been for a while.

Composer, violinist/violist, Didem Somel, is an award winning musician who is also vocalist and keyboard. Her jazz oriented solos on violin Saturday were outstanding.

Glen Anderson, a jazz bassist has a long resume that includes the Tower of Power Horns among other well known bands.

Robby Albrecht, drummer and studio artist has opened for bands including Ziggy Marley and BB King.

More information about the musicians is here.

The roots to their music is eastern European, jazz, and classical styles.  I thought for sure I heard a little of Bella Bartok in there.

If you're interested in hearing new and refreashing sounds, keep an eye on Celestial Navigation's website for future performances.


  1. Will they be playing again soon?

  2. I'll announce their next date here, stay tuned!

  3. I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before. paypal login
