The Center for Positive Living, 45 Castle Rock Road in the Village of Oak Creek, finishes up its January entertainment line up with musician entertainers and Yodeling Champions Jim and Jeanne Martin.
Jim and Jeanne Martin have been singing together professionally for the past 26 years and have performed for audiences in several states across the country. They are professional members of the Western Music Association and have several awards to their credit.
They are most noted as the "6 time National Harmony Yodeling Champions" of the Western Music Association and in 2010 they were named the Harmony Duo of the Year for their beautiful blended harmonies. Jeanne is also a "Female Vocalist of the Year" award winner in the Academy of Western Artists.
They have been honored to perform with such great Western Acts as Riders in the Sky, Michael Martin Murphey, Johnny Western, and Rex Allen Jr.
Jim & Jeanne specialize in Western Music reminiscent of the Sons of The Pioneers, performing such great Western classics as "Cool Water," "Tumbling Tumble Weeds," and "Ghost Riders in the Sky."
With their brand of beautiful blended harmonies, championship yodeling and their brand of cowboy humor, the package is complete. They are currently performing four nights per week at the Blazin' M Ranch Chuckwagon Supper and Western Stage Show in Cottonwood.
Founder of the In the Living Room music series, Shondra Jepperson remarked, "I'm very excited about having Jim and Jeanne Martin with us for the first time In the Living Room. These two are outstanding talents, personal friends of mine and they're also cast mates with my husband partner Tom Jepperson in the nightly cowboy show at the Blazin' M Ranch in Cottonwood. They are terrific individuals with very interesting backgrounds and professional experience so I'm trusting that people attending will bring a list of questions to ask them during their concert."
CPL Sedona's seating is limited to 40 comfortable chairs, with a stage platform and excellent sound system. These concerts are allowing for an intimate, up close and personal showcase with some of the finest performing artists in Sedona and the Verde Valley every Wednesday from 7-8:15 p.m. Unlike any music venues in Sedona, audience members have the opportunity to learn about the artists by asking questions of them during their concert.
Every Wednesday, the doors open at 6:30 p.m. for tea and coffee with the concerts starting promptly at 7.
Admission is $10 cash only and because seating is limited it is highly recommended to arrive early since tickets are available only at the door the night of the concerts.
Wednesday evenings in February start off with talented singer Gail Kennedy accompanied by jazz pianist singer Steve Sandner on Feb. 4th, Guitarist James French on Feb. 11, Steve Sander returns as a single on Feb. 18 and singer songwriter Rachel Marie Kimber will round up the month of Feb. in concert on the 25.
