A few great things going on this summer!
• Field's Revolutionary Funk project appears every Saturday night from 9-10:30pm at The Club in beautiful Provincetown, MA on Cape Cod, bringing B3 organ-based groove & funk to that very happening venue, with a rotating cast of incredible musicians!
• Field and Tunisian-born oud master Walid Zairi have begun work on an exciting new, as yet unnamed, collaborative duo project. They will be working thru the summer to build a collection of original compositions & unusual arrangements for saxophone & oud, including a unique treatment of a composition by J.S.Bach.
• A Symphony of Crickets is a music and spoken word performance based on the poetry of award-winning African American writer & musician Charles Coe. Mr. Coe will read selected works with musical interludes performed by an all-star 5-piece ensemble of outstanding musicians and vocalists. With a wide ranging song list inspired by the text of the poems, the music will traverse jazz, funk, r&b, delta blues, and even classical styles, strung together in a seamless sequence outlining in words and tones the breadth of the American musical experience:
Millions of Americans are documenting this past year of pandemic life in journals, diaries and songs. In Cambridge, some residents gave voice to their experiences in a unique way — capturing this period in their lives in a play produced by the Multicultural Arts Center, “Cambridge: Our Town Our Stories.” Created in the style of Thornton Wilder’s 1938 classic drama, “Our Town,” which explores the fictional experiences of everyday small-town living, Cambridge's version is based on the experiences of residents during a year of global pandemic. No fiction here — theirs are authentic reflections of a scary and uncertain time. Listen to host Callie Crossley interview three such residents about their roles in the play, and their experience over the past year.
