Brown Bag featuring The Confluence Trio – A Brown Bag featuring The Confluence Trio – Doug Byrkit singing/playing bass, Wayne Kimler on guitar and Peter Hussey singing/percussion – will be held at noon on Wednesday, April 17 in the Ringhausen Music Building on L&C's Godfrey campus. As with all Brown Bags, guests are encouraged to bring their lunches.
"Confluence has several meanings to the group," said Hussey, L&C associate professor of Music. "It means a coming together of musicians – none of us had met prior to working at L&C; a coming together of musical styles, genres and influences – there are really no boundaries for the group in terms of what music we are interested in performing; finally, the overarching symbolism of the coming together of the three rivers that define the area where we all live."
The Brown Bag will feature a variety of musical styles that are likely to suit any audience member's taste. Hussey said The Confluence Trio will perform anything from jazz to funk and world music to rock, including independent, country and original works. Concertgoers can also look forward to some guest performers as well, from both faculty and students.
