11.02 Silver Screen Experience @ Bard College

Friday, 2 Nov, 2018
Chris Washburne’s “Rags & Roots” @ Bard College, Fisher Center: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari

I’m back in NY to join trombonist Chris Washburne, who is putting the “Rags & Roots” band back together to perform an original score to the 1920 silent “horror” film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Last spring we premiered his score to a recently restored cut  at the intimate Bell House in Brooklyn, but now we’ll be on the BIG screen at Bard College’s Fisher Center.
