The Coleman Theatre, downtown Miami is pleased to present Pianafiddle, Friday, March 13th, at 7:30pm.
Is it bluegrass? Is it jazz? Is it classical, old time, ragtime, blues, Celtic or klezmer? If Pianafiddle is performing, the answer is yes! With their healthy appreciation for good music, no matter the style, their programs transcend musical genre. Beginning only with a familiar tune, pianist Lynn Wright and violinist/fiddler Adam DeGraff improvise as they go, blending the traditional, the unwritten, and the spontaneous in compelling performances that get toes tapping and hands clapping!
Lynn has enjoyed a long musical career as a jazz and ragtime pianist, including a ten-year stint as the resident ragtime pianist at the world-famous Silver Dollar Saloon in Jackson, Wyoming. Adam is a classically trained orchestra violinist and chamber musician, having served most recently a five-year tenure with the Richmond Symphony Orchestra in Virginia. Their separate paths led them both to West Virginia in 2003, where each recognized in each other a complementary talent: soulful, spontaneous, improvisational piano playing by Wright, technically superb and emotionally powerful violin playing be DeGraff.
With countless performances, three CD’s, and a full length concert DVD to their credit, Pianafiddle continues to engross its fans with traditionally grounded yet spontaneous musical creations that unfold onstage…different every time.
Adam and Lynn love performing, improvising and playing off of one another, and ultimately agree that musical boundaries are meant to be crossed.
