Holly Bowling took the stage at the College of St. Rose’s Massry Center for the Arts recently and delivered a solo piano recital quite unlike anything that you’ve ever seen or heard before.

The repertoire for her nearly three-hour concert was culled primarily from the songbag of Vermont’s jam-band kingpins Phish, although she did slip the Grateful Dead’s “Cassidy” into the mix during the second portion of her concert.

While many of her interpretations were re-inventions of Phish faves, there were also a number of selections that she had painstakingly transcribed from renowned live performances, like the epic, show-closing rendition of “Tweezer” from Tahoe in July, 2013, which clocked in at a sprawling 37 minutes.
