Donahue to headline free jazz show at college on Saturday
MIDDLEBURY — People who have enjoyed Miles Donahue’s annual all-star jazz shows at Middlebury College will find some new faces at this year’s show, “A Vermont Jazz Experience,” which will take the stage at the Robison Concert Hall this Saturday night.
In addition to Donahue, an affiliated artist at the college, playing saxophone and trumpet, the quintet will feature four Berklee College of Music professors. They include Sal Difusco on guitar, Tim Ray on piano, John Lockwood on bass, and Larry Finn on drums. Ray may be familiar to some outside the jazz world — he is a long-time player for Lyle Lovett.
As usual, Donahue will distribute a free CD to everyone who attends the concert — admission is free, too. This year’s CD is called “The Journey Home,” which Donahue created with the Celtic group Donnchadha.
The concert hall is the college’s Mahaney Center for the Arts. The show begins at 8 p.m.
