AARON PRICE with LIVE PAINTING BY LES III, June 29, 7:30pm, $12 advance, $15 door
Aaron has long been known in WNC as a songwriter and accompanist, but his hymn improvisations are cementing his reputation in his oldest incarnation: impressionistic pianist. Growing up in church, hymns and sacred music were among the first music to take hold in Aaron's long-term memory. He dwells in these present moments while extemporizing on the familiar hymn tunes and gospel standards. Expect appeearances from guest vocalists throughout the night.
Painter and ink purveyor Les Caison III will provide a visual element at this concert, creating live sketches with the aid of an overhead projector. Their long-term artistic relationship reaches fruition at these interactive, one-of-a-kind performances.
