Nate Ketner

Redwood Coast Music Festival 2019 Performing Artist

Nate Ketner (clarinet, sax) began his music studies and apprenticeships in California‚Äôs Central Valley and soon moved to Los Angeles to hone his skills in one of the most competitive music scenes in the US. Nate has been playing the woodwinds professionally since he was 19 years old.  

 

Since 2005, he has played, written, and arranged for more than 50 different groups in a broad range of styles. No matter where his talent has taken him, he is always keen to return to his love:  traditional jazz and the New Orleans style.

 

Naturally being a saxophonist first, the Jazz idiom is where Nate finds his home. Throughout his musical career he has developed the ability to authentically play many different styles with an emphasis on jazz from the 20s to the 50s.  

 

He has performed with popular festival bands such as the Reynolds Brothers, Ellis Island Boys, Meschiya Lake and the Little Big Horns, and the Bluestreet Jazz Band, while also leading his own ensembles and groups.
