THE DANNY KALB TRIO PERFORMS LIVE AT
THE HISTORIC GREEN-WOOD CHAPEL
Blues & Jazz Concert to Benefit The Green-Wood Historic Fund
New York — The Danny Kalb Trio will bring its All-American blues vibe to the Historic Green-Wood Chapel with an unforgettable evening concert on Sunday, June 13 at 7:00 p.m. Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Green-Wood Historic Fund, a non-profit membership organization proactively working to raise funds to conserve and restore Green-Wood’s endangered monuments and preserve its artistic legacy.
“Each year, the Green-Wood Historic Fund sponsors a calendar of cultural and educational events – walking tours, lectures, art exhibits and musical performances – that raise crucial funds to help preserve this nationally landmarked cemetery,” said Richard J. Moylan, president of Green-Wood Cemetery. “We are proud to welcome legendary blues and jazz musician Danny Kalb and his band to Green-Wood and encourage everyone to come out and celebrate for this worthwhile cause.”
A founding member of the “Blues Project,” Danny Kalb’s smooth blues and folk melodies have thrilled audiences since the 1960s when he started as a solo performer and session player with Phil Ochs, Judy Collins and Pete Seeger. He has long been recognized as one of America’s foremost guitarists. And, with a strong national following, Kalb has influenced generations of aspiring, young blues musicians.
The concert will be held in Green-Wood Cemetery’s Historic Chapel. Tickets cost $15 for Historic Fund Members and $20 for non-members. Refreshments will be served. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.green-wood.com/toursevents or call 718-210-3080.
