Review for Jason Coleman:

In addition to touring the “Legacy” show, Mr. Coleman is an active recording musician and church music associate in Nashville.  He debuted on the Grand Ole Opry at age 17.  Mr. Coleman’s natural inclination to the piano was clear by the age of five.  In addition to his formal training, Mr. Coleman displayed an uncanny reflection of his grandfather’s stylings.  Most famously he performed piano duets with Floyd on “Music City Tonight” hosted by Lorraine Crook and Crystal Gayle at the age of nine, and on “Nashville Now” hosted by Ralph Emery at four years of age.  Most notably for Mr. Coleman, however, was his performance at the induction of his grandfather into the Country Music Hall of Fame with the Opry House Band.

The Cleveland-Bradley Concert Association has been presenting internationally acclaimed artists since 1958.  This all-volunteer nonprofit organization is committed to enriching the cultural life of the Cleveland-Bradley area through live performances.  Thanks to the generosity of patrons and sponsors, these concerts can be offered at affordable, family friendly prices.
