Nathan and Julie Gunn at Wigmore Hall

"If there’s such a thing as a perfect programme of listening for a Sunday evening – music that’s comforting, mostly undemanding, with a hefty dollop of nostalgia thrown in – the husband-and-wife-team of Nathan and Julie Gunn delivered it in spades. Their Wigmore Hall concert carried the atmosphere of an old-time broadcast from Radio City Music Hall, or, perhaps even the intimacy of an after-dinner parlour performance from the turn of the 20th century, and, notwithstanding the fact that much of the (all-American) music was from later decades, a Stephen Foster song – or even a recitation of some Emily Dickinson – would not have seemed out of place."

Julie and Nathan Gunn Present DRYTOWN: An Living Room Vaudeville

Where did you get your start? It’s a question often asked of Krannert Center’s incredible array of artists, including Julie and Nathan Gunn. For Julie Jordan Gunn, things began in part in Drytown, California, a gold-mining-town-turned-summer-theatre-destination where, as Julie was growing up, the Jordan family would join the Claypipers performance troupe to present comedic melodramas and a special Labor Day children’s showcase featuring none other than Julie and her two younger brothers. Things built from there for Julie—and the story eventually included Nathan, too. Now the Gunns invite you to pull up a chair for a charming living-room style cabaret, complete with a small band and filled with their own family stories; friends old and new singing and playing songs old and new (including numbers by the witty and wise Susan Werner); and special guests who will offer a unique window into where great artists come from.

Nathan and Julie Gunn and Friends: An Evening on Broadway

On October 6th, Nathan and I sent the Krannert Center its 50th Birthday present: a concert celebrating everything about the University of Illinois that we have been so lucky to be a part of as students, faculty, and performers.

Alongside current students, alumni, faculty, emerging artists and seasoned professionals, we shared some Broadway heritage, from Street Scene and Carousel to Fun Home and Parade. We did this not just for the beautiful music, but to showcase some of the incredible talent of the new generation of young musicians.

This premiere project is available in varied forms to young artist programs all over the country. If you want to share in this celebration, we'd love to hear from you.
