There’s another pop-up Trillium Salon Series show coming up this weekend.

The event, set for 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 2 at Matt Miller Studios in Fayetteville, will feature improvisational guitar from artist Tashi Dorji, and a blend of folk and classical music by upright bassist Haley Bowman.

Dorji’s playing has been described as “perfectly formed explosions that are full of movement and prickly energy.” The Bhutan-born guitarist currently resides in Asheville, North Carolina.

Bowman is in her fifth year at the UA as a music business major. She’ll open the show with a performance blending folk and classical styles.

For those who aren’t familiar, the Trillium Salon series is a show series created by locals Katy Henriksen and Glenn France showcasing musicians playing classical music in intimate settings around town.

Past shows include a marimba concert inside the lobby of KUAF Public Radio, silent film screenings with live improv scores performed at Artist’s Laboratory Theatre, a trio concert of bassoon, clarinet and piano at Arts Center of the Ozarks, and others.

Doors open at 4:30 p.m.

The event is free to attend, and open to the public, though donations for the artists will be accepted.
