Opening Night: The Andy Statman Trio with guest, David Grisman
March 1, 2012
An evening with two of America’s most extraordinary musicians who infuse Klezmer with an exceptional mastery of jazz, bluegrass and folk music. Andy learned Klezmer clarinet from the legendary Dave Tarras, who bequeathed several of his clarinets to him. A close friend and band mate of Jerry Garcia, David Grisman is one of America’s guiding forces in acoustic music, accompanying such diverse artists as Bonnie Raitt, Stephane Grappelli, Doc Watson, Bela Fleck and the Grateful Dead.
The Andy Statman Trio will perform a set of their own music. David Grisman will join them for the second half of the concert.
