Mark Shilansky's Fugue Mill with Special Guest Britt Connors
Fugue Mill weaves jazz through the fabric of Americana, world, and classical music, creating a complex yet attractive blend of musical and improvisational styles. Original group pieces are featured side by side with music by such composers as Leonard Cohen and Samuel Barber. Violin and mandolin augment the quartet of piano, guitar, bass, and drums, creating a transparent and vibrant palette of improvisation and counterpoint.

Members of the group combine their wide-ranging experience playing with such artists as Luciana Souza, Esperanza Spalding, and Darol Anger into a musical melange that explores diverse idioms, linked through improvisation and groove, and features original long form compositions, as well as music by Thelonious Monk, Elvis Costello, and Leonard Cohen.

Singer/Songwriter Britt (Sawdon) Connors was born and raised singing in small-town West Boylston, MA. The lure of the talented Boston singer/songwriter scene, and the dream of playing at Club Passim brought her to Boston in 2001. She did a 4-year stint as the featured vocalist for the 20-piece Compaq Big Band (swing, jazz, and American Songbook), singing to audiences at Scullers, Ryles, and Regattabar while building a loyal following and honing her songwriting craft. Her first original tunes appear on her 2010 release The Bad Side of Good," which was debuted to a sold-out crowd at Johnny D's in Somerville, MA.

Britt's new album "Warmer Season" was also released to a sold-out crowd at the venerable Club Passim. The record features her original tunes that are alternately rockin', country, sweet, rootsy, New-Orleans-street-parade-style, or just plain fun. With its clapping, foot-stomping, and even some whistling, the record could be said to belong in its own sub-category of Americana they've deemed "Y'all-Ternative" music. Britts current working band, "Bourbon Renewal," is comprised of some of Bostons most in-demand musicians, a tight working unit that brings her music to new heights. Britt also performs her music solo and in various duo and trio settings for more intimate venues.
