About the event
Kansas City, Missouri musician and composer Jeffrey Ruckman will lead an exploration of musical sounds that heighten the perception of our environment, incorporating piano, 2 dulcimers, accordion, gong, train sounds, and jaw harp into an examination of the subtleties of sound. This presentation is a segment of his ongoing series, “We Have No Word for Music”, which has been well received at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City. For over 35 years Jeffrey’s compositions have reached national audiences through NPR and PBS, with appearances ranging from Mardi Gras parades to avant-garde concerts.
There will be an informal gathering after the event at Diana Werts’ art studio (the old Hitchin Post bar at 201 S Reed) where we can continue the conversation, jam a little, and enjoy refreshments. Just drive to the south end of Matfield Green and park behind the dark red & metal building on the east side of the road. Tickets
