Ynana Rose with Holly Ann Lewis

Sensorio, 4380 Highway 46 East, Paso Robles, CA

This will be my 2nd time playing at Sensorio with my dear friend and amazing singer-songwriter, Ynana Rose! 

We are playing a 2 hour show with a mix of our original music mixed with some cover songs!

Here is little about the venue and what to expect!

Internationally-acclaimed artist Bruce Munro will premier his largest artwork to date—an enormous multi-acre walk-through installation—at Sensorio in Paso Robles, California beginning May 19, 2019. Bruce Munro: Field of Light at Sensorio will use an array of over 58,800 stemmed spheres lit by fiber-optics, gently illuminating the landscape in subtle blooms of morphing color that describe the undulating landscape.

Powered by solar, the stunning exhibition will captivate visitors, inviting them to engage with the landscape and environment through an ethereal light-based and sculptural experience.

Smithsonian Magazine has called Munro’s art “stunning,” while The Guardian noted, “This is art you feel, rather than art you view.”

See you there!
