15-time Grammy nominee Fred Hersch is a “living legend” (The New Yorker) whose solo performances are a “uniquely pure art form” (Jazz Times).
Fred Hersch has been proclaimed “a master who plays it his way” by the New York Times, and an “elegant force of musical invention” by the Los Angeles Times. He is widely recognized for his ability to steadfastly create a unique body of original works while reinventing the standard jazz repertoire — investing time-tested classics with keen insight, fresh ideas, and extraordinary technique. In 2006, Hersch became the first artist in the 75-year history of New York City’s legendary Village Vanguard to play a weeklong engagement as a solo pianist. His second solo run there was documented on the Grammy-nominated Alone at the Vanguard, one of six recordings he’s made at the iconic club.
All proceeds from the concert will go to benefit the New Pine Plains Herald, a non-profit journalism startup serving Pine Plains and members of its school district, which includes Ancram, Gallatin, Milan, and Stanfordville.
