Pianist Bill Carter and The Madame Jenny’s House Jazz Band
Saturday, November 9th | 8:30 – 11:30pm
Bill Carter blends his work as a jazz composer and his calling as a Presbyterian pastor. Working the dotted line between sacred and secular, he preaches sermons each week at First Presbyterian Church of Clarks Summit and makes music with jazz musicians throughout the northeast. A graduate of Binghamton University (SUNY) and Princeton Theological Seminary, he has taught jazz piano and composition at Marywood University in Scranton for nearly 20 years. Over the course of his career, he has made music with Phil Woods, Dave Brubeck, Bobby McFerrin, and David Liebman, among many others. He is the author of eight books and composer/performer of ten CDs. He travels widely as a speaker, teacher, workshop leader, and jazz pianist.
This weekend, enjoy a musically-infused night set against the backdrop of Scranton’s Prohibition past. Percussionist Tyler Dempsey, bassist Joe Michaels and the Madame Jenny’s House Jazz Band lead some of the most highly regarded musicians in the country.
