Jazz Prodigy Concert: Gabriel Severn

 

The Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum are proud to support Berkshire Jazz Week.

This year's Jazz Prodigy Concert, features Gabrial Severn. an award-winning 13-year-old electric bassist. Gabriel  began playing at age 7, but was already drawn to the bass by age 2. As a toddler, he’d point the bass out at performances and festivals while watching his dad play. It was then that he developed an ear for Jaco Pastorius’ music, and loved listening to bands such as the Yellowjackets and Weather Report during car rides. In 2012, at age 7, Gabriel began private lessons, and 4 months later joined his first band. He received international recognition when his video performing Jaco’s solo on Havana at age 11 went viral, setting the wheels in motion for a possible professional career. He has won a Down Beat Magazine award for student composition. He will appear with local musicians Eugene Uman on piano and Conor Meehan on drums.

This program may be approved for Forum Credit for BCC students.
