Jazz Trio's Free Performance Kicks Off Weis Center Season

Aug 13, 2019 10:53AM ● By Erica Shames

Ryan Flannery Trio will perform their unique style of jazz music on Thursday, August 29 at 7:30 p.m. in the Weis Center Atrium to kick off the Weis Center’s new 2019-20 season. The family-friendly performance is free and tickets are not required.

The performance is sponsored, in part, by Gary and Sandy Sojka. 

A native of Lewisburg, PA and a recent graduate of the College of Charleston School of Music, guitarist/composer Ryan Flannery is steadily building his name as one of the most compelling and impressive young jazz artists in the South East.

Flannery possesses a strong technique, a warm luminous tone, a natural sense of swing and distinctive chording. 

This trio includes Ron Nihoff on drums and McCarthy Fitch on bass.

They will perform a memorable set of tunes including funk, ballads, and uptempo hard bop.  

For more information about this free performance contact Lisa Leighton, marketing and outreach director, at 570-577-3727 or by e-mail atlisa.leighton@bucknell.edu.
