Upcoming concerts

Hi -

  Here's some info on upcoming concerts that should be of interest to my listeners. Hope you can make it to some of these. I'm going to try and make as many of these as I can. Some great shows coming up.

Saturday, July 26, 2014, 5-7 pm: Ben Neill performs at Manitoga, Garrison, NY

  Ben Neill is a local musician and composer who works with an instrument of his own devising called the mutantrumpet, which is a trumpet with multiple bells and fitted with electronic controls. He will be performing a new piece at Manitoga, an outdoor venue which is also the Russell Wright design center. I honestly don't know what this will sound like, but Ben is a great musician and Manitoga is a wonderful outdoor space. This is one of those events you need to see to believe. Here's some links to more info:

Sunday, July 27, 2014, 7:30pm: Altan performs at the Towne Crier Cafe, Beacon, NY

Altan is a wonderful Irish group that has been around for over 30 years. I've played their music on my show before. If you like Irish music, this is a must see. And the new Towne Crier space is wonderful. My congratulations to Phil Ciganer for creating such a wonderful concert space. Here's a link to more info:

Thursday, July 31, 2014, 8:30pm - David Torn and Dean Sharp perform at Quinns in Beacon, NY

David Torn is a well known guitarist and ECM recording artist, and Dean Sharp joins him on drums. This is going to be a wild show. David is exceptionally talented. A rare chance to see him in a small space. Here's a link to more info:

Friday, August 15, 2014, 9pm: Belew, Levin, Mastellato, Reuter perform at the Bearsville Theater, Woodstock, NY

Adrian Belew, Tony Levin, Pat Mastellato, Markus Reuter and friends. This is going to be a prog rock funfest. They're running a retreat for musicians in the Catskills that week and this is the culmination of those efforts. This is a must for prog rock fans. Here's a link to more info:

Friday, August 29 and Saturday August 30, times vary: Liz Story and Lisa Downing perform in CT and MA

These shows are pretty far away, but these are a rare chance to see Liz Story in concert. She is a great person and incredible piano player. Lisa Downing is also a talented piano player. The Friday show will be in Old Saybrook, CT and will also feature a performance by Will Ackerman, guitarist and founder of Windham Hill Records. Well worth the drive. The Saturday performance is in Northampton, MA and just features Liz and Lisa. Here's a link to more info:
