Master of mandolin and clarinet, Andy Statman will perform at the MJCCA Sunday, October 19, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. The Andy Statman Trio, featuring Statman, Jim Whitney and Larry Eagle combines Klezmer, Bluegrass, and Jazz. The program will be held in the MJCCA’s Morris and Rae Frank Theatre.
Statman’s compositions celebrate the music of his dual heritage as an observant Jew and an American. The New Yorker has called him a “Clarinet and mandolin virtuoso and American visionary.” Born into a long line of cantors, composers and both classical and vaudville musicians, Statman is considered one of America’s most sought after and gifted mandolinists and clarinetists. His peers, fans, and the world press celebrate him as the rare multi-instrumentalist who brings to life Bluegrass, Klezmer, Jazz, Americana, and Hasidic song in a way few other musicians ever have.
