Charles Overton & Brian Friedland – Jazz (Eliot Schoolyard Concerts)
June 27, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Charles Overton has broken ground by bringing harp to jazz. He’s played at Tanglewood, the Berlin Philharmonic and Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, and was the first harpist at Berklee’s Global Jazz Institute, where he studied with Terri-Lynn Carrington and Danilo Perez. He’s joined by composer Brian Friedland on keyboard.
Enjoy live music, outdoors in a creative, vibrant space. It’s part of the Eliot Schoolyard Concert Series, featuring music from jazz to R&B to folk and funk, harp to steel pan, every Sunday at 4 from now through September, curated by pianist/composer Brian Friedland (who initiated the series), Hoopla Productions (which has produced JP Porchfest), and Oompa & The Record Co. (which just re-opened its renovated recording studios in the South End).
Concertgoers must bring their own seating. Any public health guidelines then in place will be enforced. No dogs, please. The concerts are free. Your donations support the series.
