Fripp Island Friends of Music opens 31st season with jazz duo

The very best jazz around is coming to Fripp, as Fripp Island Friends of Music opens its 31st season of bringing music to the Sea Islands, with an outstanding jazz duo.  Bert Ligon and Craig Butterfield exemplify the finest tradition of our uniquely American musical idiom, Jazz.

Craig Butterfield makes a double bass dance and sing in a manner seldom seen. He’s magnificent, a magician of this classic jazz instrument. Craig shares the stage with Bert Ligon, known not only for his impressive piano artistry, but he’s also the author of several books on jazz theory and technique. Why, you could say that he practically “wrote the book” on jazz! We guarantee that this is one performance where you’ll hear jazz as it was meant to be played.

The concert will be Sunday, October 26 at 5 p.m. at the Fripp Island Community Center, 205 Tarpon Boulevard, Fripp Island, SC, 29920. Tickets at the door: Adults $25 per person/$10 for students. All attendees receive a free Fripp gate pass and are invited to join the artists at a complimentary catered reception following the performance.
