Creating Musical Moments

Presenting Beth Hamon, Artist-in-Residence
Musician, Visual Artist, Jewish Educator

February 21-23, 2020

Beth Hamon is a singer-songwriter whose contemporary folk songs straddle the line between Jewish and secular themes of justice, hope, renewal and love. Her music has a raw quality that exhibits equal parts vulnerability and strength. Beth's unique art is made from recycled, repurposed and found objects. She comes to us from Portland, Oregon.
