Join Concord Community Music School faculty member and multi-instrumentalist Eric Klaxton for an exploration of how three musical mavericks made a lasting impact on American culture, in the Bach’s Lunch Lecture “Pioneers of New Orleans Music: Louis Armstrong, Sidney Bechet, and Fats Waller,” Thursday, March 5, at 12:10pm. Trumpeter Louis Armstrong, a New Orleans native, championed New Orleans music around the country and world, eventually becoming a household name. Fewer know the name of clarinetist and saxophonist Sidney Bechet, another native to the Crescent City. As Armstrong was to the trumpet, Bechet was to the saxophone. Up in Harlem, New York, Fats Waller was writing songs and developing a style of piano playing that had roots in New Orleans that would in turn influence the New Orleans style for years to come.

Thursday, March 5, 12:10 to 12:50pm. Free and open to the public.

Much more than Bach, the Bach's Lunch series explores a range of musical topics and genres in informal, free, lunch-hour lectures and concerts the first and second Thursdays of each month, November through June.

Bach's Lunch lectures and concerts are held in the Recital Hall, 23 Wall Street, downtown Concord; they begin at 12:10 and conclude by 12:50 p.m. Bring your lunch - and your friends!

The Bach’s Lunch Series is sponsored by The Timothy and Abigail B. Walker Lecture Fund and The Engelke Heggie Gratefulness Fund. For more information, call 603-228-1196 or visit www.ccmusicschool.org.
