Pompanuck Farm will hold its Spring Pizza/Jazz Big Night! This is the first of Pompanuck's music and meal nights of 2010 will happen with enough great music and pizza to take us through the Spring! Come hear fine Jazz and enjoy wood-fired pizza in the Roundhouse at Pompanuck in a benefit night for Pompanuck's programs.
Headlining this evening's jazz will be vocalist, Leah Carroll (Greenwich, NY) and Bruce Williamson with local Bennington College and New York City musicians.
Leah Carroll started training classically at fourteen, but loves jazz because it's limitless and liberating - no boundaries. She has been performing at various venues in the capital region for the last five years, exploring many styles of music such as folk, jazz, soul, funk, blues and latin jazz.
Multi-instumentalist, Bruce Williamson, co-founder at Pompanuck. Bruce was active
in the San Francisco jazz scene until moving to New York City in the mid-1980s. Bruce has performed with Mark Levine, Pete & Sheila Escovedo, Bobby McFerrin, Benny Green and was a member of the experimental jazz group in various New York City clubs and has been a featured soloist in Japan and Europe. His most recent CD "Big City Magic" on Timeless Records features well-known trumpeter Randy Brecker and Bruce's compositions for jazz septet. Bruce is presently on the music faculty at Bennington College, VT and has been a jazz clinician throughout the U.S. and Europe. He divides his time between NYC and Cambridge,NY, where he is founding member of Pompanuck Farm Institute. Bruce an his friends can be heard locally at our Pizza Jazz benefit nights.

Proceeds from this event fund our children's programs that we host thoughout the year.
