Out of the Blue Livestream Series with Carl Dimow

Friday - January, 15 @ 7:00pm

Thank you for joining OUT OF THE BLUE featuring Carl Dimow! Watch live (or later) on our Facebook page.

Carl Dimow has been a part of the Maine music scene for over forty years.  As a flutist, guitarist, vocalist and composer, he has performed with numerous groups.  He has also created music for theater productions and other special projects.  Blue audiences have seen Carl perform regularly with the Casco Bay Tummlers klezmer band; Choro Louco - Portland’s virtuoso Brazilian ensemble; and the wonderful Carl Dimow Jazz Quartet.  Carl has composed music for all of these ensembles.  He is known in flute circles worldwide for his award winning Klezmer Suite for Flute and Classical Guitar, which has been performed on five continents and recorded by a number of different ensembles. Carl taught jazz and folk guitar at Colby College for 36 years and continues to teach flute and guitar lessons from his home studio.

For this solo performance, Carl will be playing flute, bass flute and guitar.  The repertoire will include blues, jazz, klezmer, Brazilian music, and Yiddish songs.  There will be something for everyone - and this will be a rare chance to hear Carl in a solo setting.
