We at the Rialto would like to invite you to be our guests at our second cabaret-style Songwriter's Roundtable, featuring Claire Kleese, Jessica Joyce, Katherine Taylor and Madeline Hawthorne Kelly, with Elaine Kelly on violin. Come early to grab you the best seats in the house in the Black Box theatre to catch some of the best songwriter storytellers this wonderful town of ours has to offer. So bring a friend and take a listen, or slide in along our sleek, black benches against the Burn Box bar's windows overlooking downtown upstairs. We'll be piping in the performance so you won't miss a thing. 

Come be our guest. See you there!

Jessica Joyce
Jessica Joyce
Jessica Joyce is a singer-songwriter, audio engineer, and filmmaker in Bozeman. She is originally from Hardin, Montana. In her music, she draws inspiration from the past, by making films out of archival footage to accompany her compositions. Currently, she works as an audio engineer/av tech at the Rialto, and for Jereco Studios in Bozeman. She has also worked as the Assistant Music Director at KGLT Radio, assistant engineer at "Live from the Divide" radio show, and as tech crew at the Willson Auditorium. She graduated from Montana State University with a BA in Music Technology.
Katherine Taylor
Katherine Taylor
You’d be right to call Katherine Taylor's songs Americana. She writes about people and place, and her sound is rooted in tradition. She learned to sing in a Mississippi Baptist church and began to play guitar after first hearing string band music. She studied Bluegrass and Old Time at East Tennessee State and recorded and toured with the Colorado folk trio Free the Honey. The newly formed Katherine Taylor Band culminates years of musical exploration in emotive electric country blues.
Elaine Kelly
Elaine Kelly
Elaine Kelly was born right here in Bozeman, MT. She started playing the fiddle with her younger brother, Eric, after they saw a group of musicians performing at a Bozeman Fire Department pancake feed. Eric made fiddles out of legos until they both got their hands on some real violins. Elaine started taking private lessons shortly after Eric and they've both been playing since. Elaine played and sang with The Gallatin Valley Junior Fiddlers and various school orchestras and ensembles until moving to Missoula for college where she played with the University Symphony and performed locally with singer songwriter Brandon Zook. After graduating with Visual Art degree, Elaine moved back to Bozeman where she is currently working as an art teacher and performing with the local symphony.
Madeline Hawthorne Kelly
Madeline Hawthorne Kelly
Madeline Hawthorne Kelly is a soulful singer-songwriter based out of Bozeman, Montana. Her take on the current Americana music genre is unabashed, straightforward and open. A vocalist first and foremost, her voice has the uncanny ability of drawing a crowd from anywhere in ear shot. Her unique style blends years of classical training with a raw quality compared to singers Bonnie Raitt, Grace Potter and Susan Tedeschi.

Madeline’s original songs have a magnetic quality with poignant lyrics that question and occasionally answer the ups and downs of young adult life. Madeline’s passion and poise have landed her many opportunities. She has performed on the impressive stage of Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado alongside DJ Douglas Appling of Emancipator. Her voice is featured on his hit song “Minor Cause.” She is Bozeman’s 3-time nominated favorite solo performer from Bozeman Magazine’s people’s choice awards.

Madeline sings lead in the The Hawthorne Roots with her sister Emma Kelly. The band tours heavily throughout the Pacific Northwest and Rockies Region. The original material in The Hawthorne Roots has received praise in the Bozeman community. The Hawthorne Roots were voted “Best New Band” and “Best Folk Act” in 2015 and have received “Best Folk Act” for 3 years running from the Bozeman Magazine People’s Choice Awards. The band is scheduled to release a self-produced EP in the summer of 2018.
