ABOUT THE MUSIC
The Elden Kelly Trio features Carolyn Koebel on percussion and Denis Shebukhov on bass. Carolyn and Elden have worked together since 2010, cultivating a musical vocabulary based on a shared affinity for instrumental improvisation and exploration, unusual instrumentation, and original songs. Denis completed the trio in 2015, and they have been performing together ever since. All three are also active educators.
Denis Shebukhov began playing jazz bass professionally while in his native Russia. In 2000, he came to the U.S. to study jazz. After playing four years on the Holland America Cruise line as bandleader, bassist and vocalist, he is now a respected figure of the music scene in Kalamazoo, MI.
Carolyn Koebel is a classically trained percussionist and has studied around the world to develop her eclectic voice. Her on-location studies have included time in Brazil, Ghana, Japan, India, and Turkey.
Guitarist and singer-songwriter Elden Kelly is often categorized as a jazz musician, who integrates classical music with a variety of Western and non-Western styles. In addition to electric nylon string guitar, Kelly plays an 11-string fretless guitar that conjures the sounds of Delta blues and Indian sitar. Nonetheless, jazz and American roots music provide the foundation of the group’s sound, creating a sonic experience and a live show that is unlike any other.
The trio has performed around the Midwest region at numerous clubs, summer festivals and performing arts centers. In 2016, the ensemble collaborated with internationally renowned balafon master Famoro Dioubate from Guinea for unforgettable performances.

Directions & Parking
From downtown Kalamazoo, follow Michigan Avenue east. Just after the King Highway turnoff get in the right lane and stay right as you pass under the viaduct (you are still on E. Michigan Ave). Straight through light at E. Main, continuing on E. Michigan — we’re in the next block on the left just past the community garden — look for yellow house with grey fence. Street parking available on the south side of E. Michigan Avenue. Use the arbor entrance from E. Michigan to house. If you require an accessible entrance, please turn left on Foresman and left into the first driveway and use our back door.
