Sonny Rollins To Play The Tarrytown Music Hall: Benefit concert for Hudson River Sloop Clearwater
Tenor saxophonist Sonny Rollins and his band will perform a special benefit concert for Hudson River Sloop Clearwater on Sunday, December 6, 2009 at the Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, NY. The concert will begin at 2:00 pm.
Sonny Rollins‘s performance in Tarrytown on behalf of Pete Seeger’s Clearwater will mark the first time the renowned environmental organization has ever hosted a benefit concert dedicated solely to jazz, and is also the first time that the saxophonist has performed a fund-raiser for any cause. The concert, to be presented by Jazz Forum Arts, is Rollins’s only 2009 New York area appearance.
Performing with Sonny Rollins will be his working band: Clifton Anderson (trombone); Bobby Broom (guitar); Bob Cranshaw (bass); Kobie Watkins (drums); and Victor See-Yuen (percussion).
Tickets for the concert range from $75 to $100; a limited number of premium tickets (which include a reception with Rollins) are also available.
