Jeff Newell New-Trad Octet
Thursday, May 19 at 12 & 7PM
Tickets: $10 (12PM) & $25 (7PM) General Admission
Jeff Newell’s New-Trad projects are modern musical vehicles for the roots of American music. Combining instruments and elements of a traditional New Orleans brass band with those of a modern jazz group, this ensemble explores the early sources of our nation’s musical heritage (church music, band music, blues, etc.) and combines these influences in ways that speak to and excite modern audiences.
