2/9/10: CMG Presents Fred Longberg-Holm

The Creative Music Guild in collaboration with Brad Winters is proud to present ...

an evening of virtuosic, vastly interesting music featuring innovative cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm.

Few contemporary improvisors can claim as varied and rich a musical pedigree as Lonberg-Holm, who has worked with titans of both avant jazz (Brotzmann and Vandermark) and rock (Wilco and US Maple). We look forward to an inspiring performance and a wonderful night.

When: 8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 9
