Jazz at 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing: Tom McDermott from New Orleans

1867 Sanctuary at Ewing

Preservation New Jersey is pleased to present the New Orleans Jazz Piano legend Tom McDermott in the gorgeous acoustics of the 1867 Sanctuary at Ewing! He was a Duke of Dixieland, and co-founded modern brass band, the New Orleans Nightcrawlers. He has written for theater, and recorded multiple albums. 
One of New Orleans’ premiere piano players and composers, Tom is known for his eclecticism, and is just about the only New Orleans pianist to stretch from the mid-19th-century music of Louis Moreau Gottschalk to the funky New Orleans piano today. He has a great love of Brazilian music (17 trips there so far), the Beatles, European classical music, early Duke Ellington, and much more.
This event is likely to sell out - get your tickets early!
