FUTUREMAN | SILVERMAN

Concert & Creative Conversation

June 25 / 7:30pm

UVM Recital Hall

392 S Prospect St, Burlington, VT

Two musical pioneers and creative genuises, Roy "Futureman" Wooten and Tracy Silverman, will take you on a musical journey that fuses classical, rock, jazz, and world music into a genre-bending performance of stylistic breadth and emotional depth.

 

Tracy Silverman is regarded as the world's preeminent electric violinist. Equally acclaimed is his longtime musical partner, renowned composer, innovator and five-time GRAMMY-winning percussionist Roy “Futureman” Wooten, of Bela Fleck & the Flecktones.

They perform arrangements of electric violin works written for Silverman by John Adams, Terry Riley, Kenji Bunch, Nico Muhly, and Silverman himself, as well as original compositions and a few “de-rangements” of Hendrix, Stevie Wonder, Bach and others.

Tracy and Roy will engage in conversation with the audience throughout the concert, sharing insights into their creative process and inviting ideas from the audience to help shape their performance. 

The concert will be about 1 hour and 15 minutes, with no intermission.

 

There will be a reception with Roy and Tracy following the concert in the lobby.
