Acclaimed jazz guitarist Julian Lage to perform at Vassar’s Skinner Hall, September 24, 2016

Heralded by the New York Times as “one of jazz’s breezier virtuosos, possessed of an unflappable technical facility and seemingly boundless curiosity,” jazz guitarist Julian Lage will perform at Skinner Hall on Saturday, September 24, 8:00pm. This concert is free and open to the public.

Lage will perform selections from his latest album, Arclight, and will be joined by trio members Scott Colley, double bass, and Kenny Wollesen, drums. The group is currently in the midst of an international tour.

A child prodigy, Lage’s musical prowess is captured in the documentary Jules at Eight. He is highly regarded in jazz and new music circles for his own work as well as for his collaborations with such artists as Gary Burton, Nels Cline, Fred Hersch, and Jim Hall, among many others.

This concert is a Music Department Dickinson-Kayden Event.
