5.13 Chris Washburne Rags & Roots Band @ Bard College

Saturday, 13 May, 2017 (7:30pm)
Featured Artist with Chris Washburne’s Celebration of 100 Years of Jazz @ The Fisher Center

Our celebration of the newly released CD “Rags & Roots” continues with a special concert at the Fisher Center’s Sosnoff Theater at Bard College. The 1917 efforts by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band mark the first time for recorded music to be marketed as jazz. One-hundred years later, the health of the genre may seem dubious, but that won’t stop us from creating an experience with the best of what the art form offers. The adventurous attitude of the Catskill Jazz Factory helps make it possible. Special guests include vocalist Vuyo Sotashe; pianist André Mehmari and trumpeter Dominick Farinacci.
