Andy Statman Trio - POSTPONED

POSTPONED - Check back for rescheduled date



“Andy’s music is not bound by denominations, but is a beautiful sound full of heat, heart and a love of God...”  -Rolling Stone


"An American visionary, the real thing... a musician's musician." -The New Yorker


Returning to Payomet for the fourth time with his trio, Andy Statman is commonly acknowledged as one of the great mandolinists on the face of the earth, and an equal master of the clarinet.  Statman is not just in a class of his own, he is in a world of his own --- melding bluegrass with jazz, klezmer and classical music. His styling has made him one of the most requested session and side men in music and is recognized as a pioneer in the resurgence of modern klezmer music, appearing at religious events and very well known as an expressive proponent of the Judaic tradition in music. It's unabashedly American music, Andy says, proud of his U.S. roots, and the spirit of individuality, creativity and compassion it embodies. Or it's deeply religious hasidic prayer, intended to embrace his Jewish heritage, he explains in a soft voice. And it's jazz, he'd say, on its lonely search for the spirit of lost worlds. It's all of those things, because, although they may seem worlds apart, "They all come together in me. If you're in touch with your Judaism," Andy says, his voice cracking, "you experience things..." He is misty by now, and it is clear that this is a man who always speaks and plays from the very roots of his soul.   “In Statman’s versatile hands is a music that’s full of surprises, sophisticated and completely accessible at once” New York Daily News “(A) seamless amalgamation of jazz, bluegrass and klezmer...” The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
