FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 2019
Venue Berlind Theatre
It's hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell.
The New York Times
There are lots of jazz guitarists, but only one Bill Frisell, a pioneer whose influence on several generations of guitarists is incalculable. His eclecticism, willingness to experiment, and use of effects have virtually become a stylistic blueprint, whether applying electric improvisation to bluegrass or early rock. His luminous vision of Americana folk-jazz fusion has made him a brand unto himself. Whatever he does, it is music that could only be his, which helps explain why his latest solo CD is aptly named Music IS.
Join us in McCarter’s Lockwood Lobby from 5:00pm – 8:00pm on June 7, 8, 14, 15, and 22!
There will be delicious food and drinks available for purchase, plus music and activities for the whole family.
Pre-show admission and activities are FREE and OPEN to the PUBLIC.
