CAP Profile of the Month

CAP Grant Profile of the Month ~ Piano by Nature concert: Blue Hues

Piano by Nature, an ECAC CAP-funded organization, will offer a concert called Blue Hues, with the Larry Ham Trio on Saturday, February 17th at 7:00pm and Sunday, February 18th at 3:00pm, at the historic Hand House in Elizabethtown, New York.

Blue Hues is a celebration of music that looks forward while staying firmly rooted in the tradition of the great piano trios of jazz. Piano by Nature is so fortunate to host three masterful jazz musicians: Larry Hamm on piano; Matt Dunne on bass; and Tom Melito on drums as a special mid-winter treat. The concert will feature new music from bassist (and ECAC Board member) Matt Dunne, as well as Larry Hamm originals and creative arrangements of jazz classics.

The program has a special North Country connection, as the three musicians met at the Crane School of Music in the late 1970s, performing in a variety of groups during a particularly fertile and active period in that school’s history.

Admission to each of the concerts is $20 with a special $5 for children of 15 and under. All seating is available on a first come- first served capacity. Reservations are requested to be made through email at by or by phone at 518-962-8899. You won’t want to miss these extraordinary performances!
