The Eric Byrd Trio will make their first appearance on the Liriodendron Mansion stage on Sunday, September 11 from 5 to 7 pm. For over 20 years, The Eric Byrd Trio – pianist/vocalist Eric Byrd, bassist Bhagwan Khalsa, and drummer Alphonso Young, Jr. – have traveled the world as enthusiastic ambassadors of jazz. Rooted in swing and be-bop, The Trio also embraces gospel and the blues as core elements of their expansive performance style. Their body of work spans seven unique studio and live recordings on which they shine as a Trio and as collaborators with an expanded 8-piece ensemble they call The Eric Byrd Trio: Brother Ray Band, in tribute to The Genius of Soul icon Ray Charles. On each recording, they take a rigorous, modern approach to standards as well as original compositions, playing with great acuity within the broad and rich jazz tradition. The concert will be held outdoors. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from a local food truck and Independent Brewing Company. Grounds open at 4:00. Concert begins at 5 pm. Tickets are $15 for adults. Kids 12 and under admitted free, but must be accompanied by an adult. Visit https://bit.ly/EricByrdTrioTix for tickets and information. Music at the Mansion is made possible in part by a grant from Maryland State Arts Council through Harford County Cultural Arts Board, by a grant from Harford County, and by support from Music Land.
