Three originals. Three musical explorers. Their music knows no boundaries.
As the summer season draws to a close, the Concerts at the Farm Series will fire up again on Saturday evening, September 12, when Alex de Grassi, Paul McCandless and Ian Dogole take the Munay Farm “stage” for an unforgettable evening of highly adventurous music. Whether playing jazz, indigenous music from the far corners of the globe or any other style that inspires their quest, these three innovators revel in the art of musical story-telling along with improvisational forays into the great unknown.
This concert is likely to sell out so be sure to reserve your seat right away to share in an unforgettable evening of music.
