All-Star Jam Session Extravaganza at Lachat Town Farm

Saturday, October 21, 2017 - 4:00 PM - 9:00 PM - Featuring: The Ian Murray Band, Pete Francis of Dispatch fame playing with with Ray Bryant, Jason Pharr and Matt Barcewicz and special guest Bakithi Kumalo of Graceland Album fame.

Pete Francis: Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Pete Francis is an artist of boundless creativity and joyful versatility. He co-founded Dispatch, a trio widely recognized as one of the biggest independent acts in rock history. Nearly two decades after the band first broke onto the New England scene, Francis continues to create boldly innovative music through his work as a solo musician, record producer, and member of the still majorly crowd-drawing Dispatch.

Francis made his debut as a solo artist with the release of 2001's So They Say. Over the next 13 years he'd go on to turn out six more solo records, each further revealing his adventurously creative spirit and devotion to intricate songcraft. As heard of his most recent solo effort-2013's fantastically psychedelia-tinged Immodal Implozego-Francis's solo material endlessly blurs musical boundaries while delivering indelible melodies and sharply poetic lyrics. In the midst of cultivating that genre-warping solo career, Francis joined the resurrected Dispatch in 2007 for a series of sold-out shows at New York City's Madison Square Garden. That three-night stint was captured in the double live album Zimbabwe. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pete_Francis_Heimbold

Ian Murray Band: Ian Murray is a multi-instrumental musician. His repertoire is varied, drawing influences from classic rock, country, pop and more. Ian sings, plays electric /acoustic guitars and alto saxophone. Some songs are totally acoustic while others incorporate sequenced backing tracks. Ian started his career in 1976 with LIQUID STONE, a Rhythm and Blues outfit. With the arrival of punk rock, the band started writing self-penned material in the New Wave style. After an appearance at Friars, Aylesbury in April 1980, the band secured a British tour supporting THE UK SUBS. LIQUID STONE released a vinyl single in 1981 “Here Comes The Weekend”, subsequently reissued 2011. https://www.facebook.com/Ian-Murray-Band-7610591300/. Don't forget to bring your beach chair and/or blankets, snacks and flashlights for returning to your cars.

Children under twelve are free. There won't be any craft section for children during this event. You will be responsible for watching your children.

Cost: $20.00 per Adult
