Come to an evening of INSIDE/OUT, an alternating mix of standards and free music, performed by guitarist Dan Rose and pianist Connie Crothers. Connie Crothers is known for her uncompromising spontaneous improvisation, originality, virtuosity and wide range of expression. It will repay your attention with an enthralling sublimity. “Connie Crothers scored the festival’s lone solo gig, mixing in a noble grace, oblique angles and uncompromising ferocity into her piano work. Her use of space, sensitivity and bursts of energy filled with felicitous detail was astounding. It’s difficult to say if the most memorable element of her glorious set was the virtuosity with which she played or the taken aback joy with which she radiated while soaking up her well-earned rousing applause.”
