Mike Derzon plays this weekend’s Bluegrass Fest with pal Johnny Bregar. As musicians and friends, Johnny Bregar and Mike Derzon go way back. They connected in the 1990s when mutual friends recorded a CD in Bregar’s basement as a wedding present for Derzon. Then they joined with three other musicians to form a Seattle-area folk rock band. Big Spoon had a steady seven-year run that included regular local gigs, a concert at Seattle’s old Summer Nights at the Pier series opening for the Allman Brothers Band and a single in rotation on radio station KMTT. But life moved along. Four out of the five band members started families, one left the area and the grouping naturally dispersed. That’s when Bregar opened a new chapter.

Terri Segadelli and Mary Clipsham have the big cancer benefit off and walking. Picture dawn on a summer Sunday. Hundreds of paper bags line the Bainbridge High School track, each one decorated and lit from within by a candle, each one placed in honor or in memory of someone touched by cancer. In the bleachers, an arrangement of similarly illuminated bags spell the word “Hope.” “If you can imagine,” Mary Clipsham said, “walking around that track, and the sunrise, and the glow from the bags...it was very moving.”

They saw the space and decided to fill it with something sweet. “Something just kept drawing me to it,” Niehaus said. “I kept peeking in thinking I wanted it for something. Four weeks later, we opened the doors.”

Fiddler Andrew Joslyn returns to the island tonight with Handful of Luvin’. It’s been seven years since Andrew Joslyn left Bainbridge High School to pursue a music degree at Western Washington University. Armed with a violin and a classical background, Joslyn quickly realized he needed something else besides the regimented schedule and requirements of a university music major to keep his musical passion alive. “I’m not Jascha Heifetz or a hard-core classical violinist and I’m definitely not a morning person,” said Joslyn at his current home in Seattle. “I just thought, there is no way I am going to make it like that.” So he dropped his major to a minor and started experimenting with fellow Western alum and singer/songwriter David John Wellnitz.

BPA’s Camp Teen Broadway stages the hit ‘Les Misérables.’ Jake Mallove was over at a friend’s house one day, and she asked if he’d ever heard the music from “Les Misérables.” When he told her no, she sat him down, played 30 seconds of each song accompanied by a blow-by-blow plot synopsis, and then sent him home with the soundtrack. He thought it was okay. But then he saw a live production in London and had the type of epiphany that has generated an audience of over 50 million people worldwide and kept the show running in London’s West End for nearly 22 years.
