Piano and Guitar Concert
September 14, 2016
$15 suggested at the door
Pianist/composer Scott Cossu will be making his sixth concert appearance in Kathy Parsons’ house concert series in Florence (Sandpines West) on Wednesday September 14th at 7:00. Cossu was one of the first artists signed to the legendary Windham Hill record label in the 1980’s and continues to be one of the most respected names in contemporary music. He is currently one of ten artists nominated for a Lifetime Achievement Award from One World Radio, which broadcasts internationally. His most recent album, Safe in Your Arms, was nominated for Best Piano Album with Instrumentation for 2015 by Zone Music Reporter. With a graduate degree in Ethnomusicology and lifelong experience in jazz and classical music, Cossu’s style is a blend of a wide variety of influences that create a sound uniquely his own. As comfortable playing barrelhouse piano as he is creating a lyrical melody line, Cossu will be playing music from his many albums as well as some possible surprises. Performing with Cossu will be guitarist Lonnie Mardis, who has worked with Cossu for more than twenty years. Cossu’s house concerts usually end with a cheering standing ovation, so reserve your seats early! This promises to be an incredible evening of great music and entertainment, so don’t miss it!
Reservations are required by emailing Kathy Parsons at firstname.lastname@example.org. The address and directions will be given when reservations are made. There is a suggested donation of $15 at the door (all donations go to the artists).
