Novel Jazz returns to Skidompha Public Library, for an evening of classic jazz from the great American songbook on Friday, March 22 at 7 p.m. This will be the band’s first Skidompha performance of 2019, following a busy 2018 with the production of their fourth CD, “Ellington & Strayhorn Novellas,” due out soon.
Skidompha/Novel Jazz evenings began with the observation that lovers of books often are lovers of jazz. Moreover, the superb acoustics of Skidompha’s atrium, plus the seating “in the round,” make it a great place to see and hear the performance, all in a relaxed, informal atmosphere.
Performing will be Barney Balch (trombone), Herb Maine (acoustic bass), Mike Mitchell (trumpet), Bill Manning (drums), Dave Clarke (guitar) and David Harris (reeds).
Admission: $15/adults, $14/seniors, $7/youth 12-18; under 12 accompanied by a parent go free. Call 563-5513 for more information.
The library is located at 184 Main Street in Damariscotta.
