Upcoming ScottClark4tet Concerts

 

SONY DSC
I am very excited to announce a few concerts that are coming up this month for my group the ScottClark4tet.

First we will be playing at Balliceaux, in Richmond, on February 16th with the Brian Jones Trio.  This concert will feature music from our new release on Clean Feed Records “Bury My Heart” as well as some other SC4tet standards. The Brian Jones Trio will be playing some Brian Jones originals, as well as some standards and a number of other things. Brian’s bands are always amazing and you will not want to miss this. (more info here)

The following week we have two great shows.  First on Wednesday, February 24th we will be performing the “Bury My Heart” suite at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts Millennium Stage in Washington DC.  Doors for this concert open at 5:30pm and the show will start right at 6pm.  Concerts at the Millennium Stage are free and open to the public.

Then on Friday, February 26th we will be performing the suite again, but this time in NY at the ShapeShifter Lab.  This show is especially exciting as we will be sharing the stage with Nate Wooley and his Quintet.  Nate has been a big source of inspiration for me over many years and it was a great honor to have our new record released the same time, on the same label, as his Quintet’s new record.  If you’re not familiar with Nate’s music, or if you haven’t heard his latest record on Clean Feed Records, I truly encourage you to find out more info on him. (here is a great place to start http://natewooley.com) (also, more on Nate’s new record here Nate Wooley on Clean Feed Records and Nate Wooley Store)
This is an early show with sets at 7pm and 8:15pm $10.

Thank you all for your support and we hope to see you at one of these shows….

RVA Music and Art

As the year winds down, I just want to take a minute and thank everyone that I’ve had the chance to play music with this past year….and to thank all of the friends that I’ve been able to make all around the world.  It’s been an amazing year, and I’m looking forward to even more exciting things in the coming years.

There has been a lot of great music released this year in RVA and I hope that you’ll check out some of these great records/musicians and keep supporting the RVA music and art communities.  We have a very special group of people in our city, doing some truly great and inspiring things.

Here are just a few records, and people, that I hope you’ll check out.  I look forward to seeing, and hearing, more from them in the years to come.

Mingus Awareness Project Concert July 20th @ The Camel 9pm

This Friday, July 20th at The Camel, the ScottClark4tet is excited to be a part of a great benefit concert called the Mingus Awareness Project, featuring some of Richmond’s finest musicians.  The Mingus Awareness Project is a series of concerts that benefits organizations that provide support for individuals who have ALS as well as their families. MAP concerts also provide opportunities for audiences and performers to celebrate the music of Charles Mingus, music composed by artists who worked with Mingus, as well as music by composers who perform during MAP concerts. Ten Mingus Awareness Project concerts have happened in Chicago, IL and Richmond, VA since 2007.  This year the concert will feature 5 groups all playing arrangements of Mingus’s tunes.

The show starts at 9pm.  (all proceeds will be donated towards ALS research).

If you are free please come and enjoy this great night of music and help support a great cause….
