August 2nd Nate Birkey Quintet 5-7pm

Whether performing his own compositions, jazz classics, hymns, spirituals, country or pop tunes, Birkey holds his quintet together with thoughtful arrangements that instill a sense of wonder as to what's coming next.

A fluid improviser and vocalist of understated grace, Birkey has an engaging way with a song. His sound is poised and assured, powerfully stark and spare - it creates an atmosphere at once solitary and electric.
