In anticipation of our upcoming festival (just one week away!!) I've compiled a list of the top five musicians you just can't miss out on seeing this year!
1) Robby Aceto:
After visiting our class a few weeks ago, Robby Aceto quickly jumped to the top of my must-see list. The samples of his previous work that we got to experience were absolutely breathtaking and truly engaged our class as the audience. This 'color' guitarist has one of the most eclectic and truly incredible sounds I have ever experienced and I simply cannot wait to hear him this year!
2) Li'l Anne and Hot Cayenne:
Whenever the term 'groovemasters' is used, you know its legit! This group of musicians exemplifies a melting pot of rock'n'roll, blues and funk in the most incredible way. No one can deny they are intrigued by not only this bands' name but also their music!
3) Deborah Martin:
After our class field trip to the Music School a few weeks ago, Deborah Martin landed a spot on my top five must see musicians. Her passion for playing the piano is palpable, and her love of the music apparent as she sits down quickly at the piano and taps out a beautiful melody with no effort. If you see one musical performance this year, make sure its hers !
Itching for a some Tex-Mex and Finnish music? Toivo is right up your alley. The six piece band from Trumansburg specialize in waltzes, schottisches and polkas, and will no doubt have you ready to dance along!
5) Bernie Upson and his Quartet
Are you a jazz buff? Simply a jazz lover? I am all of the above and cannot wait to hear Bernie Upson and his Quartet play with their over 50 years of jazz scene experience.
