Julian has always fostered an eclectic music taste as encouraged by his St. Louis roots. Upon moving to Boston to pursue a Master’s Degree in Classical Percussion from The New England Conservatory, Julian quickly sought out the Boston folk scene. After long days of practicing, Julian routinely snuck out of the conservatory to attend Boston’s folk and bluegrass venues. After just a couple months, a friend invited him to attend a show at Club Passim and to this day he remembers nearly every detail of that November night.
As Julian explored all ends of Boston’s art and music scene, he began contributing as a devoted fan, bandleader, concert producer, and social-entrepreneur. Julian currently leads a New Acoustic Celtic sextet called Night Tree; he collaborates with various artists from R&B singers to flamenco guitarists as well as abstract painters and improvising dancers.
After a few months working in the Box Office at Club Passim, Julian became the Outreach Coordinator. In this position, Julian will be sharing Passim’s music and sense of community with Greater Boston through four summer concert series and The Boston Celtic Music Festival. As an advocate for Club Passim, Julian will be bringing Passim’s music to new audiences as well as encouraging new audiences to discover the welcoming community and opportunities that Club Passim offers.
Between rehearsals, practicing, and eating hummus, Julian can be found jogging around Jamaica Pond, re-watching Chef’s Table episodes, studying photography, and listening to the latest podcast episode of How I Built This.
