Garth Hudson and Friends to Join Richard Barone’s Cool Blue Halo 25th Anniversary Concert with Special Guests
Chamber rock pioneer Richard Barone will celebrate the 25h anniversary of his first solo album, Cool Blue Halo, with a special performance at New York’s City Winery on May 4. Recorded live at New York’s Bottom Line on a single evening in May 1987, the all acoustic performance blended classical, jazz and art-rock elements. For Barone’s City Winery performance, he will reassemble his original backing group—cellist Jane Scarpantoni, acoustic guitarist Nick Celeste and percussionist/keyboardist Valerie Naranjo—and recreate Cool Blue Halo in its entirety. Several special guests will join Barone throughout the performance, including Band organist Garth Hudson.
