x_Welch_Neil_coa_2

An impassioned tenor player “who combines mysticism with ferocity” (DownBeat) and half of the adventurous Seattle sax/drum duo Bad Luck, Neil Welch presents a new, large ensemble. Concepcion Picciotto is his homage to the late homeless peace activist’s 35-year White House vigil for nuclear disarmament. Welch’s solo work Puhpohwee opens. Presented by Earshot Jazz Festival.
