An Evening of Drums and Dance is Thursday at Barking Legs

Barking Legs will host Klimchak: An Evening of Drums and Dance on Thursday. This show is a dual concert between the two percussionists Klimchak and Sean Hamilton.  Tickets are $10 at the door, and the show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Review for the performers:

Klimchak has made a career from finding new ways to explore percussion, often using unique instruments or building percussion out of household objects. Sean Hamilton's solo work has toured around the world. It is a blend of improvisational percussion and electronic music.

The two drummers will also be joined by Barking Legs Theater's own Ann Law, who will work with the drummers to create an improvisational dance piece, along with four other dancers.

Barking Legs will also host Burton Greene for a solo piano concert on Sunday at 7:30 p.m.

Review for Burton Greene:

Burton Greene rose to prominence during the 1960s on New York’s free jazz scene, gigging with well-known musicians including Alan Silva and Marion Brown, among a host of others. With Alan Silva he formed the Free Form Improvisation Ensemble in 1963. He joined Bill Dixon’s and Cecil Taylor’s Jazz Composers Guild in 1964, and also played with a number of other artists, including Rashied Ali, Albert Ayler, Gato Barbieri, Byard Lancaster, Sam Rivers, Patty Waters, and others. During this time, he recorded two albums under his own name for ESP-Disk. After moving to Europe in 1969, Greene rarely performs in America.

The Forever Bluegrass's Bluegrass Matinee will also be held on Sunday with David Parmley and the Cardinal Tradition.

And over the next few months, Barking Legs will present KJO Tribute to Bitches Brew, David Grier, Matt Flinner and Willie Watson.
