Radoslav Lorkovic Returns to the Orcas Grange! Sat, March 28th - 7pm
Internationally acclaimed pianist who’s toured with Odetta, Greg Brown, Jimmy LeFave, Ronny Cox, Ellis Paul, Shawn Mullins to name a few, is like no other. Returning in response to last year's show patrons to perform in the San Juan Islands again! This amazing artist – blues-Croatian-Americana-classical-jazz musician is an unforgettable evening of music, song and stories.
Born in Zagreb, Yugoslavia, Lorkovic hails from a musically and academically talented family, who had the good fortune to move to London when he was 5, then to Minnesota a year later. Three years after that, they ended up in Iowa, where his father became a renowned neurophysiologist-academician. With a grandmother who was the premier pianist of Yugoslavia and great-grandfather who conducted eastern European symphonies, he was a classical prodigy. Then, as a teenager in Iowa City, he discovered the Top 40 and the Blues. Rad’s life has integrated and honed his musical passion into a fine lifestyle and art form.
A highly sought after festival and internationally touring ‘sideman’, he also writes and performs his own songs, all tied up in his prowess on the piano (and accordion!). He is a fabulous story-teller who regales his audiences with his life, family heritage, world adventures exploring life and love. His personal experiences span the Cold War, Iron Curtain, Academia, Blues, Carnegie Hall, Woody Guthrie Tribute tour, specialty music cruise ship tours, recording sessions in the US and abroad and Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. Rad is being inducted into the Iowa Blues Hall of Fame April, 2020, along with Iowan Bo Ramsey. radoslavlorkovic.com
He’ll be performing twice in the San Juan Islands. Suggested Donation is $15-20. Kindly RSVP - www.houseconcertsandsuch.com.

Review on Radoslav’s Clear and Cold CD re-release: Take a listen- https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/clear-and-cold/657080774
The album is an intimate affair and the newfound clarity allows the listener to nestle in closely to the long ringing piano notes and Lorković’s softly soulful and impassioned vocal delivery. Clear and Cold has always been an essential album in my collection—one that transcends the time and place in which it was released. --Michael Roeder of littlevillagemag.com
