The Muncie Three Trails Music Series – John Scofield
October 6, 2016 @ 3:30 pm - 5:59 pm
National Recording Artists Headline Muncie Three Trails Music Series
The Muncie Three Trails Music Series returns in 2016 with another stellar line-up of critically acclaimed national recording artists who will perform in a series of four free concerts in downtown Muncie.
Legendary jazz guitarist John Scofield will conclude the Muncie Three Trails 2016 season with a performance at Conrnerstone Center for the Arts on Thursday, Oct. 6th. Considered to be one of the “Big Three” jazz guitarists of the last 40 years (along with Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell), Scofield has recorded over 30 albums, including 22 which placed in the top ten on the jazz charts. Also, afte multiple nominations, Scofield received his first Grammy in 2016 for Best Jazz Instrumental Album. His current tour, the “Country for Old Men” tour, with keyboard ace John Medeski, will feature jazz interpretations of classic country songs. The opening act will be BSU-associated jazz quartet LaMont’s Company.
The Muncie Three Trails Music Series is dedicated to presenting outstanding national acts free of charge, and also encourages attendees to take advantage of the concert venues’ proximity to our downtown and the three beautiful trails that give the series its name: the White River Greenway, Cardinal Greenway, and Muncie Arts and Culture Trail. We hope attendees will heed our slogan, “Explore the Trails, Enjoy the Music.” For complete series information, including songs and videos of the performing artists, can be found at www.munciethreetrails.com. The Muncie Three Trails Music Series is a non-profit joint venture of the Muncie Downtown Development Partnership, Muncie Arts and Culture Council, and Rick Zeigler, series founder and organizer.
