Dimow/Lyden/Miller Trio - with special guest, Betsy Sholl.

Saturday - March, 28 @ 6:00pm

Carl Dimow Quartet

For this date only, well known flutist/bass flutist Carl Dimow will be performing with the great bassist, Jim Lyden, and the remarkable drummer, RJ Miller.  Dimow and Lyden have been performing together since the 1980’s.  They look forward to this first opportunity to work with RJ Miller, a creative force on percussion.  They will also be joined by the award winning poet, Betsy Sholl.  Sholl was poet laureate Maine from 2006 to 2011 and has authored nine collections of poetry.  Included in her diverse work are many jazz inspired poems.  For part of this set, Sholl will be reading some of her jazz poems with the trio improvising around her.  This promises to be a unique and special evening.
