Aug. 9 concert at the bandstand
The Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce will host its Summer Sunset Music Series on Sunday, Aug. 9, featuring the Burr Johnson Band.
The series, hosted at the Village of Cold Spring’s Riverfront Bandstand, is free of charge for residents and visitors. Concerts run on Sundays from 6 to 8 p.m.
Guitarist Burr Johnson’s repertoire is spiced liberally with flavors of jazz, rock and blues. Johnson has toured nationally with jazz organist Jack McDuff and has performed with the Brooklyn Philharmonic and legendary artists Ray Charles, B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Spyro Gyra and Rick Derranger.
The Burr Johnson Band has performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival and then went on to headline the Manchester Jazz Festival. He records frequently in New York City and has appeared in the major motion picture Beat Street.
