“Nashville Meets New York” w/ Nicolas King & Alex Ashley
February 16 @ 7:30 pm
On Wednesday, February 16, the Royal Room stage in Seattle’s historic Columbia City neighborhood will come alive with a tour through time as award-winning, critically-acclaimed jazz artist Nicolas King and Americana/roots artist Alex Ashley treat audiences to an evening of jazz that pays homage to the rich relationship between country and jazz throughout history, and their shared roots.
These two seasoned performers will trade off leading a jazz trio through an amalgamation of both genres: Ashley will touch on the rich storytelling of traditional country and western music, playing jazz interpretations of classics by Hank Williams, Sr., Ray Price, Eddy Arnold, Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys, and others. King will bring the Great American Songbook, and the sounds of New York City’s vibrant “52nd Street Scene” to life.
