Two concerts by contemporary guitar trios
The Silver Spoon continues its music programming with September Guitars @ the Silver Spoon, a series featuring two concerts by contemporary guitar trios. On Friday, Sept. 7, the guitar/organ groove of the DMK Trio starts the series, and on Saturday, Sept. 22, the noted New York City guitarist Kenny Wessel will perform with his trio.
First up for the series is a smoking ensemble of young lions, the DMK Trio, featuring Chris “Catfish” Dayton on guitar, Sean Morrison on organ and Michael Kadnar on drums. They will perform at the Spoon at 8 p.m. Dayton, Morrison and Kadnar are all SUNY New Paltz graduates with degrees in jazz studies. Guitarist Dayton is currently pursuing his master’s degree in jazz performance at the Aaron Copland School of Music at CUNY/Queens College in New York City.
The DMK Trio’s music is heavily rooted in jazz with a hot groove that mixes blues, funk and fusion. They formed their trio a few months ago and have been gigging all over the Hudson Valley ever since. They have a residency at Chill Wine Bar in Beacon and on the gazebos at Woodbury Commons.
The concerts will be presented without cover charge, though donations for the musicians will be gratefully accepted. The Silver Spoon is located at 124 Main St. in Cold Spring (845-265-2525).
