Blues Jam with Bill Gregg – Monday, December 17 from 7 – 9 PM.
Bill Gregg, long time guitar teacher at TCFA, has presented several blues workshops at the conservatory in recent years. He is inviting guitarists of all levels who are interested in traditional blues to get together and play with others who enjoy this music. The format will be a round robin jam where each player can take a turn leading a song while others join in. For those who don’t feel comfortable in leading, it is perfectly OK to pass and just play along. Other acoustic instruments are welcome to join in too (mandolin, acoustic bass, fiddle, jug etc.) For more information contact Bill Gregg at firstname.lastname@example.org

Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio
Saturday Nov 17 from 8-10pm. Tickets available in advance for $16, $18 at the door.
The Juanito Pascual Trio features three highly versatile and dynamic musicians, New York-based percussionist Guillermo Barrón (Jose Feliciano Band, John Benitez) and stunning bassist Brad Barrett (Jason Moran, Ran Blake). By combining their distinct musical backgrounds with a powerful personal chemistry, the Trio has created a fresh, exhilarating and constantly evolving sound, performing to enthralled audiences throughout the U.S. and abroad.
Their sound is a truly organic blend of a mastery of traditional and contemporary flamenco plus influences ranging from Jimi Hendrix and the Grateful Dead to Miles Davis and J.S. Bach. The 2014 release “Juanito Pascual New Flamenco Trio” was included in NPR critic Milo Miles’ Best World Music Albums for that year. They are currently preparing to release a recently recorded 3-song EP in addition to work on a new full length album.
Since the 2003 release of Juanito’s debut solo recording “Cosas en Comun”, Pascual’s international touring schedule has brought him to venues including the Tanglewood Jazz Festival, New York’s Lincoln Center, and Blue Note Jazz Club, The Panama Jazz Festival and Madrid’s renowned Casa Patas. He has performed with a lengthy ‘who’s who’ of top flamenco artists including 2016 tour dates with Jorge Pardo (of Paco de Lucia’s legendary Sextet) in addition to collaborations with a diverse range of musicians including Grammy-winning soprano Dawn Upshaw, bassist John Patitucci (of Chick Corea’s Band), pianist Danilo Perez (of the Wayne Shorter Qt), percussionist Jamey Haddad (of Paul Simon’s group), virtuoso guitarist Grisha Goryachev, and many others.
The Trumansburg Conservatory of Fine Arts is proud to announce Terry Robb, live in concert on Friday, November 9 from 8-10pm.
A dynamic, unforgettable fingerstyle guitar virtuoso, Terry Robb has redefined acoustic blues guitar with his signature fingerpicking style. Drawing international acclaim from worldwide audiences, music critics and his distinguished peers, Robb’s unique blues sound, incorporating elements from the Mississippi Delta music tradition, ragtime, country, swing, and jazz, has made him a legend among blues musicians in his prolific music career spanning four decades.
“It’s the rare guitarist who can whip off a killer 12-bar blues solo, then turn around and fingerpick Travis-style with speed and subtlety. Yet Portland, Oregon, guitarist and singer Terry Robb does just that.” – Ian Zack, Acoustic Guitar
