Bickford Theatre: Chris Brubeck’s Triple Play
January 20 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
Led by the great Dave Brubeck’s son Chris, Triple Play brings together three exceptional musicians whose good-time music draws on folk, blues, and jazz.
Grammy-nominated composer and musician Chris Brubeck has been called “one of the finest jazz trombonists around today” by Downbeat Magazine and “one of the most capable electric bassists” by the Los Angeles Times. He began touring and recording with his legendary father and has gone onto international acclaim as a performer, composer, and band leader. He has worked with a diverse cross section of artists including Frederica von Stade, Dawn Upshaw, Willie Nelson, B. B. King, Gerry Mulligan, Stephane Grappelli, and Bobby McFerrin. His trio Triple Play delivers an epic sojourn through American music unlike any other band today. Their joy is infectious!
Peter Madcat Ruth is a Grammy Award-winning virtuoso harmonica player who is equally at home playing jazz, blues, folk, country and just plain rock and roll. He studied with the legendary Chicago bluesman Big Walter Horton and has developed a reputation as one of the best and most versatile harmonica players in the world. He performs all over the world with Triple Play and with guitarist/singer Shari Kane in the duo Madcat& Kane.
Singer/guitarist Joel Brown is Senior Artist-in-Residence at Skidmore College but maintains an active and eclectic performance schedule. In addition to being a regular member of Triple Play he is a much in-demand soloist and chamber musician. He has appeared with a variety of groups including the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the Singapore Chinese Orchestra, and the Boston Pops. He has appeared at Carnegie Hall, performed on NBC’s Today Show, and featured on NPR.
Joins us for a rollicking good time as three virtuoso musicians capture the American Spirit with their joyful blend of jazz, blues, folk, and classical music in this special concert.
