Lost Mothra Wings its Way to TAP

Door County favorites Lost Mothra make their way to Sturgeon Bay’s Third Avenue Playhouse (TAP) on Saturday, October 24 at 7:30 pm. Band members Jeanne Kuhns, Jeff Crooks, Lynn Gudmundsen, Pat Palmer, and George Sawyn will combine efforts for a night of spectacular vocals, fabulous guitar, fanciful fiddling and smokin’ bass.

Kuhns recorded her third CD, Ghost Ranch last summer, and frequently performs at the Woodwalk Gallery. She enjoys collaborating with a variety of talented musicians from all over the country, and her versatile style ranges from bluegrass and country/pop to original folk/rock.

Door County’s own Lynn Gudmundsen is a professional violinist and fiddler extraordinaire. She also performs and records frequently with area artists. Gudmundsen has also been instrumental in developing and organizing the Door County Bluegrass Camp, which completed its second year in August.

Pat Palmer moved to Door County 10 years ago, first working as a pie maker at Sweetie Pies. He now co-owns Novel Ideas bookstore in Baileys Harbor with his daughter. Palmer had been playing bass guitar off and on since high school and last summer he purchased his first upright bass after attending the Door County Bluegrass Camp in August. He soon found himself jamming with the Kuhns, Gudmundsen, and Sawyn, and formed Lost Mothra with them.

Guitarist George Sawyn’s inspirations include Wes Montgomery, Pat Metheny, The Beatles, The Ventures, and many others. He studied classical guitar in college and took several months of jazz guitar lessons with Frank Dawson.

Rounding out the Lost Mothra group is Jeff Crooks, who joined the band earlier this year.

Tickets for the Lost Mothra concert are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students, and $8 for children under 12.
