602 Bistro presents: On The Porch with Joel T. Mosman at Dominion House
I often hear people wondering where they can go to enjoy stunning visual and performance art or live music locally. That is why I am going to start “Guthrie Artist Spyglass” – a whenever I find out about something series to help you find and enjoy our own local talent wherever they are performing, preferably in LoCo, but sometimes outside of the county.
First up is Joel T. Mosman, one of my favorite humans. It’s easy to tell you about Joel because there is so much there, kindness and talent are the two key terms that come to mind when I think of him. Guthrie is fortunate that he chose to land here and stay. Show up for him and give him some love.
Singer/songwriter, Joel T. Mosman will be performing live music at 602 Bistro at Dominion House on September 26th at 7pm as part of a music series called On The Porch hosted by 602 Bistro at the Dominion House, 602 East College Ave. Guthrie, Oklahoma. The series has spotlighted many local musicians this summer. Friday night featured Stranded At The Station with the 3 Fortney’s. (Amanda, Justin, and Stef) More about On The Porch in an upcoming issue.
Mosman moved to Guthrie after meeting the love of his life, Dana Scribner, a Guthrie girl, and has made himself every bit a townie, choosing to raise their two children here. He has performed at local establishments like Hoboken Coffee Roasters and for events such as Red Brick Nights as well as private events. He has also given of his substantial list of talents to various groups and individuals throughout the community.
As the front man and founder of the Americana band Oklahoma Uprising he has brought his insightful message to thousands. As a solo acoustic act, he incorporates storytelling with songs from various genres including folk, blues, roots, gospel, bluegrass, to name a few. In addition to stage performance, he is also the owner of Joel T. Mosman Entertainment that offers DJ and live music for weddings, parties, and corporate events. His support of the local music scene is exemplary, lending his considerable talent and knowledge to add to other musician’s success.
He has opened for such legendary artists as country music legend Roy Clark, Jason Boland, and Arlo Guthrie. His list of performance venues reads like a what’s where of current Oklahoma venues; the Tower Theatre, Will Rogers Theatre, Burford Theatre, and festivals including Woody Guthrie Folk Festival, and Norman Music Festival.
A recognized regional talent, Mosman has appeared on the Rise & Shine Morning Show on Freedom 43 TV and at the Oklahoma Rodeo Opry, as well as multiple podcasts and radio shows originating from all over Oklahoma. In 2017, with his folk song Letter To Woody he took 2nd place in the Woody Guthrie Songwriting Contest.
