Enrico Granafei & Kristine Massari with Frank & Hank
Enrico Granafei has taken the harmonica from the simple instrument played by bluesmen and folksingers like Bob Dylan, and expanded it into genres from jazz to classical to folk and beyond. He plays a unique “hands-free” chromatic instrument that allows him to accompany himself on the guitar, at which he is also no slouch. His prowess on both instruments is recognized worldwide, especially among jazz aficionados, although one does not need to be a jazz enthusiast to be knocked out by his virtuosity. And he sings, too, as does his wife, Kristine Massari, who will be joining him onstage. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear someone who is arguably the best in the world at what he does. “For many years I have appreciated Enrico both as a classical guitarist and a jazz harmonica player, but what he does playing the two instruments at the same time is absolutely amazing.” — Bucky Pizzarelli
An eclectic mix of music from bluegrass to jazz to standards comes from the agile musical minds of Folk Project members Frank Sole and Hank (Hen3ry) Nerenberg. Frank is a skilled guitarist both in lead flatpicking styles and in Django-inspired jazz. Hen3ry (the 3 is silent) has one of the widest ranging musical minds in the Project, and is a genius at innovative and appropriate arrangement.
