Snap on 2&4 w/ Jim Ferguson
Our second Snap on 2&4 event of the year will be Saturday, January 26 at 8pm and will feature bassist and vocalist Jim Ferguson.
In his early career, Jim was the bassist for NPR's "The American Popular Song", with Alec Wilder, where he performed with the likes of the great Joe Williams and pianist Marian McPartland. In 1979, he began lessons with bassist Michael Moore in New York City and studied and played with bassist Red Mitchell. Eventually returning to South Carolina and earning a Master of Music Degree, Jim has been a staple of the Nashville music scene since the early 80's and has performed with countless artists across multiple genres, including such jazz artists as Teddy Wilson, Kenny Burrell, Mose Allison, and Stephane Grappelli - as well as a long partnership with country/pop artist Crystal Gayle. He is faculty at both NJW and MTSU.
Jim has two critically acclaimed CD's as a leader: 1999's Not Just Another Pretty Bass and a year later, 2000's Deep Summer Music. For several years he has been collaborating with legendary guitarist Mundell Lowe. The duo released Haunted Heart in 2007.
The show will consist of two sets, beginning at 8pm, and admission is $20 for adults / $10 Students with ID.
