Mandolin and piano duo to play in Brandon
BRANDON — Two of Vermont’s jazz musicians, mandolin maestro Jamie Masefield and pianist Tom Cleary, will perform an evening of music at Brandon Music this Saturday. Their program includes music by classical composers Samuel Barber and Bela Bartok to jazz heroes like Horace Silver and Ralph Towner and then to more pastoral landscapes from the likes of Neil Young as well as their originals. The concert on Feb. 1 begins at 7:30 p.m.
Cleary, a renowned pianist, teaches in the University of Vermont and FlynnArts jazz programs, has accompanied artists including Clark Terry and Joe Lovano and has had long-term collaborations with Mike Gordon and James Harvey.
Masefield is known for his ground-breaking group The Jazz Mandolin Project and has performed with Bela Fleck, David Grisman, Marc Ribot and Bob Weir. Masefield is also a dry stone mason based in Monkton.
Concert tickets are $20 for Saturday’s show. A pre-concert dinner is available for an extra $25. Reservations are required for dinner and recommended for the show. Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 247-4295, email [email protected] or visit brandon-music.net for more info.
