Redhead Express is a dynamic family group of nine, originally from Alaska but now based in Nashville after a two year stop in Branson, where they performed mostly at the Duttons Theatre. Their style, sound, melodies and tight harmonies have made them one of the country’s most sought-after touring shows.
The Redheads have appeared on the Clausen Center stage on one other occasion, during our inaugural 2010-11 season. Their show was a huge success, and we have wanted to bring them back ever since. They will provide an outstanding kickoff to our seventh season!
A Band Called Honalee
A Tribute to Peter, Paul and Mary
Saturday, November 5, 2016 | 7:30p
A Band Called Honalee is a modern-day folk trio inspired by the music and legacy of Peter, Paul and Mary. Musically accomplished, interactive and energetic, their show will allow our audience to experience this timeless music live on stage again.
The melodies and messages of the 1960’s folk and folk-rock era may be just as important today as when they were first sung, perhaps even more so. The Band can share this uniquely American Music with new audiences while rekindling the passion for those of us who are lifelong fans.
“It was a great night of music! The audience bought every CD they had to sell!” – Jim Clark; The Hatcher Theater; Orange, Texas.
Gammy Award Winner Mike Farris
Sings the Soul of America
The January 14, 2017 Performance has been RESCHEDULED for Saturday March 11, 2017 | 7:30p!
For our first venture into the realm of R&B, we felt nothing but the best would do, and that is how we feel about Mike Farris. In 2015, Mike became the first artist to receive a Grammy Award for Best Roots Gospel Album for his Shine for All the People. His southern heritage and rich talent allow him to offer a unique blend of music and soul that include blues, rock, jazz and R&B.
“Make no mistake, this is a powerful show,” said Ken Buell of the Clausen Center Management Team. “When I left the theater after seeing Mike perform, I felt about a foot taller than when I came in. If you accept the enthusiasm he will offer you and give it back when he asks for it, the same will happen to you. This will be a memorable night for the Rosemary Clausen Center.”
“Mike Farris is like a combo platter of joy, faith, mystery and chaos. There is nobody else like him.” – Ashley Cleveland, singer/writer/author.

For a while, we will all be younger again.
We are proud to bring such a wonderful show to our stage. This will be a night we won’t forget.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is a group of singing, strumming ukulele players, using instruments bought with their loose change. They believe that all genres of music are available for reinterpretation, or perhaps misinterpretation, as long as they are played on a uke. Irreverent? You bet!
Using instruments large and small, in high or low registers and playing complex melodies and simple tunes – all while dressed in formal evening wear, the Orchestra creates musical freedom and reveals unsuspected musical insights. Both the beauty and vacuity of popular and highbrow music are highlighted, the pompous and the trivial, the moving and amusing. Sometimes a foolish song can touch an audience more than high art; sometimes music which takes itself too seriously is revealed as hilarious. You may never think of music in the same way once you’ve been exposed to the Uke’s depraved musicology.
