Don Byron, Bill Charlap, Uri Caine to Play Jazz at the Maverick

The Woodstock, N.Y. festival is in its 96th year

Don Byron

Woodstock, N.Y.’s Jazz at the Maverick festival will feature performances by three leading artists: clarinetist Don Byron, along with his Ivey-Divey Trio, on August 6; pianist Bill Charlap on August 13; and pianist Uri Caine on August 20.

The Maverick festival has in recent years embraced the idea of broadening the definition of “chamber music” to include almost any small ensemble playing music in a small, fairly intimate setting.

In addition to the traditional classical repertoire, the Maverick roster has included, over the past several seasons, folk and world music as well as jazz. This year, Maverick’s 96th, the festival has strengthened its commitment to the jazz idiom with three concerts over consecutive Saturdays in August.
