The arts of music and photography combine as the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) welcomes popular northwest musical artist John Nilsen for a statewide tour* of live performances at five of its Nature Centers. The concerts are free and open to the public. Nilsen is a noted pianist and acoustic musician who comes from Portland, Oregon. Nilsen is a sought-after performer throughout the U.S. He has performed in all 50 states and on four continents. As a Yamaha signature artist, Nilsen travels internationally playing over 225 performances a year. For this multi-media engagement, Nilsen will compliment his nature-inspired music with the spectacular landscape and wildlife images of MDC Photographer Noppadol Paothong. Paothong’s photography can be seen regularly in MDC’s Missouri Conservationist magazine, as well as many other MDC publications. Notable album releases by Nilsen on the Magic Wing label include, Places I Go, Local Ocean, and the folk-rock CD, John Nilsen and SWIMFISH.
