Acclaimed international piano artist, composer, educator, and citizen activist Darrell Grant returns to the festival to provide an afternoon of music and conversation with the community. Enjoy this special performance from the historic OIMB Boathouse with its spectacular view of Coos Bay. Grant channels the power of music to uplift, unite, and heal. In this rare solo concert, Grant evokes piano giants Ahmad Jamal, Ramsey Lewis, Joe Sample, and Herbie Hancock. He provides a program of original compositions and arrangements and celebrates the release of his new live recording: The New Black. Many remember Darrell Grant’s influential piano concert held in the Elliott Forest in support for the old growth habitat in 2017. A classically trained pianist (B.M. Applied Piano, Eastman School of Music), with a Masters in Jazz Studies (M.M. Jazz Performance, University of Miami), Grant is a tenured Professor and Associate Director of the School of Music at Portland State University where he has been on faculty since 1996. Tickets $50, include the reception by Black Market Gourmet. Limited seating purchase early.
