    The Drovers Unlimited Orchestra, Stu Mindeman Trio, & Dan Thatcher’s Storytime

    $10
    This week, the Anagram Series starts an hour earlier to present a special three band bill. Pianist Stu Mindeman performs his original music with an excellent trio, while bassist Dan Thatcher's working group Storytime is joined by guest saxophonist Nathan Hanson.

    Mike Kirkpatrick's Drovers Unlimited Orchestra begins the night with a rare public performance at 8 PM.

    "The Drovers Unlimited Orchestra features some of the greats of traditional Irish music, some of the greats of modern jazz, and some of the Drovers, the notorious Irish-influenced rock band. Featured performers have included fiddler Martin Hayes, fiddler Kevin Burke, saxophonist Dave Liebman, drummer Billy Hart, and bassist Cecil McBee.

    The orchestra has been doing a good bit of playing, experimenting, and recording in the Drovers’ studio, Le Studio deLuxe. This includes songs, dance tunes, experimental bits, and music for specific occasions. The orchestra has an ongoing series of recordings, and Volume #2 will be available at this performance."
