HFUU Community Music & Speaker Series #6: Micah Nelson & Woody Maijers

Wednesday, August 19th 6:30pm

Join Musician, Artist and Farmer Micah Nelson and Professor Woody Maijers, expert from Holland discussing Redesigning our Hawaii Food Ecosystem: Lessons from Holland and beyond.

Micah Nelson

J. Micah Nelson comes from a lineage of musical and cultural pioneers, growing up touring with his father Willie Nelson and his brother Lukas Nelson, he has always been surrounded with vibrant and authentic creative spirits. Both a talented visionary artist and iconoclastic musician, he has performed with various acts at events like FarmAid, Neil Young’s Bridge-School Benefit, Desert Trip festival, Lightning in a Bottle, Coachella, Bonnaroo Festival as well as shows like Conan O’brien, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and more. He has showcased his artwork and music in countless other venues, spanning the creative spectrum. From his involvement in the psych-punk-orchestra Insects vs. Robots, his ongoing musical collaborations and extensive touring with Neil Young, his live performance-painting and multi-instrumental contributions to the band POTR with his brother Lukas, to his cymatic visualizations of dancing water molecules, idiosyncratic charango performance, and singing/songwriting/guitar playing with his future-folk project Pårticle Kid, Micah is constantly exploring the symbiosis of light/sound/vibration, striving to discover new emotions through various forms of expression, and seeking to touch the outer reaches of the synesthetic experience.
