Pat Metheny coming to Troy Music Hall on Nov. 19
TROY — Pat Metheny will headline Troy Savings Bank Music Hall this fall.
Metheny’s show is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 19, at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at troymusichall.org or by visiting the box office.
Metheny is launching a new playing environment, called “Side-Eye,” this season. This edition of “Side-Eye” will feature James Francies on keyboards and piano and drummer Joe Dyson.
“I wanted to create an ongoing setting to feature a rotating cast of new and upcoming musicians who have particularly caught my interest along the way,” Metheny said. “I hear regularly from new players on the scene who have professed an influence from my records and tunes and I often invite them up to my house to play. Very often, it is really natural and organic to the music to play with them, they have literally grown up with it.
“I find myself inspired by how they deal with the musical challenges that come with the territory of some of those older tunes, and at the same time I find myself intrigued with the possibilities of what might be possible in writing new music just for them,” Metheny continued. “This band setting is what that will be all about.”
The historic Troy Savings Bank Music Hall is world-renowned for its acoustical properties. The Hall hosts over 100 live performances a year and presents an eclectic season including the best in jazz, world, classical, and contemporary music, and has been in continuous use since opening in 1875.
