Summer 2022 gets busy!

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:

Field interviewed on "Under the Radar with Callie Crossley" on WGBH radio

Field interviewed on

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.

Ken Field - Cambridge-based saxophonist
Theodora Skeadas - director of small business advocacy for the nonprofit Cambridge Local First
Jeff Robinson - musician and web developer.
