"MARFA: A Country & Western Big Band Suite" Premiere

MARFA: A Country & Western Big Band Suite was originally commissioned by Ballroom Marfa. The work, composed by Golden Hornet Artistic Director Graham Reynolds, merges instrumental country music and western soundtracks with a power jazz rhythm section, a classic string quartet, all alongside horns. In total, a fourteen member ensemble featuring legendary country guitarist Redd Volkaert (Merle Haggard), fiddle prodigy Ruby Jane, and ever-smiling pedal steel player Ricky Davis (Dale Watson).

Sponsored by Kathleen & Harvey Guion, this premiere allows you to experience this work, revamped and in its full fourteen piece form, for the first time since 2013.
