Scott Beall and friends play Towne Crier
Artists Scott Beall and Carl Van Brunt have collaborated on an evening of music and art to be performed at the Towne Crier Café on Friday, Feb. 13, at 8:30 p.m.
Veteran composer and guitarist Scott Beall teams with James Cammack on bass and Nadav Snir-Zelniker on drums in an American fusion of roots, blues, jazz, funk and rock. Two large screens will grace the stage during the performance with projections of digital fractal art created by Van Brunt, creating a live concert experience reminiscent of the days of the ’60s.
A native of San Francisco and longtime Beacon resident, Beall takes a melodic and lyrical approach to composition within an expansive jazz-rock form of groove, mood, texture and improvisation. He has spent the majority of his career in the San Francisco Bay Area, sharing the stage with the likes of John Henricks, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Huey Lewis, Billy Idol, Johnny Winter and more.
Cammack has spent the past 20 years touring internationally with the Ahmad Jamal Trio. Snir-Zelniker has provided the rhythmic foundation for Jon Faddis, Dr. Todd Coolman, Arthur Lipman, Stella Mars and the Howard Lipman Big Band, among many others.
Previously a painter, Van Brunt aims to continue the development of the painterly process in the digital realm. Growing out of his well-known gallery, previously located on Beacon’s Main Street, Van Brunt Projects leverages the artist’s relationships of 12 years with other artists and curators into alternative venues.
The Towne Crier Café is located at 379 Main St. in Beacon. Admission is $20 in advance, $25 at the door the day of the show. For information, call 845-855-1300.
