Oasis of Music

KBrooksMusicWings

World-class guitarist Denny Breau and his flautist wife Ann Breau will be the featured performers at a very special Oasis of Music concert this Wednesday, November 22. The event will run from 12:30-1 at Trinity Church, 247 Bates Street in Lewiston. The Breaus are well known for their fluid and soulful renditions of selections from the American songbook, from blues to ragtime to country to folk to jazz standards to their own compositions about life in these U.S. of A.
Denny Breau’s rhythmically flawless and dazzlingly clear style allows him to do amazing and stunning things with a six-string guitar. He mixes genres with ease, “creating a totally accessible musical mélange that captivates as it entertains,” according to Lucky Clark writing for the Kennebec (Maine) Journal. Breau is also a consummate and engaging storyteller and singer, with a distinctive take on the Franco-American culture he was raised in.
Ann Breau will be remembered by many as half of Silverwood with guitarist Marc Jalbert, where her training as a jazz and classical training helped her as co-creator of some truly innovative late-twentieth century music. This event promises to be an altogether rare event, with their voices and instruments ringing in the pure acoustics of Trinity Church.
Oasis of Music concerts are always free, with the opportunity to donate. For more information call 344-3106

 

Watch for some diverse and quality music here, and please spread the word to performers and music lovers alike (now that should include just about everyone!).
