Garth Hudson of The Band
Vocals by Maud Hudson
Garth Hudson, legendary keyboardist with The Band and Bob Dylan, will be performing three intimate concerts with his wife Maud Hudson as part of Peter Swanek's special Peter's Players Keyboard Masters series on Dec 12, 13th and 14th, 2003, Hosted by Lance Anderson, these performances will be an incredible and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear one of the world's most unique and gifted pianists and organists as if in your own living room. (In fact, the concert on Sunday Dec 14th is in Peter's living room!). The concerts will explore Garth's interest in all forms of North American roots music: From gut-bucket Blues and barrelhouse boogie to sanctified Gospel. From Harlem stride and swinging Jazz to Rock 'n Roll, These two fabulous and world renowned artists cover it all authentically but always with the imprint of Garth's inventive genius. They will also perform special tributes to fallen Band members with new unreleased versions of The Band material.
The Anderson/Sloski organ and drum duo with special guest Mitchell Lewis (guitar) will perform an opening set and will celebrate the release of their new CD, 'Footwork'. (Make it Real Records/Fusion 111 Dist). They will also join Garth and Maud for a two keyboard-powered wrap-up to these special nights. This is a master. This is the series. These will be nights to remember, so get your tickets early. Tickets are already being sold.
