Siskiyou Music Project welcomes back jazz flautist Holly Hofmann and Mike Wofford for an intimate performance at the Old Siskiyou Barn.
Acknowledged as an artist with one of the most exquisite flute tones in jazz, Hofmann and her husband, Mike Wofford will present an evening of intimate duets, covering a range of jazz styles. Harvey Siders wrote in JazzTimes Magazine, “Hofmann and Wofford provide melody, harmony, rhythm and improvisation so completely that any listener would never bemoan the lack of bass and drums.” From Brazilian to bebop and blues, Holly and Mike take a joyful approach to jazz and their musical empathy draws in the audience.
Straight-ahead jazz is alive and well in the capable hands of flutist Holly Hofmann and her musical partners … Together they soar cohesively over familiar terrain, reminding us what jazz should do for you.

Time was when women who could play had a hard time getting recognition in the jazz world. Nowadays that has turned around to the extent that it seems that many women in jazz are not being judged by the same standards that should be applied to everyone regardless of gender. What I’m saying is that in this day of a free pass for some women [Hofmann] has paid her dues in full.
