The Westerlies Brass Quartet
March 28, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm UTC+0$43
Formed in 2011, the self-described “accidental brass quartet” takes its name from the prevailing winds that travel from the West to the East. “Skilled interpreters who are also adept improvisers,” according to NPR’s Fresh Air, The Westerlies bring together jazz, roots, and chamber music influences to create that rarest of hybrids: “music that is both folk-like and composerly, lovely and intellectually rigorous.” Equally at home in concert halls and living rooms, The Westerlies navigate a wide array of venues and project with the precision of a string quartet, the audacity of a rock band, and the charm of a family sing-along. Sounds just right for Dumbarton’s intimate setting.
