Soundwaves Concert: 9 Horses
August 7, 2014 @ 7:30 pm
A community summer concert series on the shores of Lake Champlain at Ballard Park, Westport, NY
Thursday August 7th, critically acclaimed violinist Sara Caswell, the virtuosic mandolin player Joe Brent and celebrated bass player Shawn Conley will bring their celebrated trio ‘9 Horses’ to the pavilion. Local favorites, Staber & Chasnoff will be opening the night with their vocal duo on guitar and mandolin.
9 horses is comprised of Joe Brent (mandolin), Sara Caswell (violin), and Shawn Conley (bass), leading lights on their instruments who create a unique and gorgeous blend of instrumental virtuosity. Brent’s indie-pop sensibility, combined with Caswell’s jazz-inspired lyricism and Conley’s extraordinary virtuosity, is at once a breathtaking display of color, melody, and rhythmic drive.
