Western senior, musician appears on ‘Leno’

The Western Front
Two years ago, in an almost completely empty bar in Seattle, Western Washington University violinist Chandra Johnson’s and spoken-word artist Mary Lambert’s musical collaboration fell on deaf ears. Ears perked up when Lambert went on to perform on Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ 2012 single, “Same Love,” and more recently, Lambert and Johnson — along with a string quartet — performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” as the musical guest on Friday, Jan. 11.
