James Limerick Kerr – Thurs., Jul. 28 @ 7 PM

James “Limerick” Kerr plays a set of solo dobro with vocals at Best Video Film & Cultural Center Thur., July 28. The show starts at 7 PM and the cover is $10.

Dr. James Limerick Kerr is a resonator steel guitarist, vocalist, and educator based in the NYC/Connecticut area. His solo concerts feature a unique mixture of original and classic gospel blues and bluegrass. Although his performances are solidly rooted on the foundations of Delta blues, gospel, and bluegrass, James incorporates a broad array of influences and enjoys the musical challenge of attempting to expand genre boundaries and expectations for the resonator steel guitar (Dobro). In addition to his performance endeavors as a resonator and steel guitarist, James is a music professor who holds a doctorate in classical guitar performance from Stony Brook University (SUNY).

James is the author of A Twenty-First Century Guidebook for Guitarists: Practice, Performance, and Teaching (Kendall Hunt), a textbook for college guitar students.

Dr. Kerr directs the Bluegrass Ensemble and teaches guitar at Columbia University. He also teaches guitar at Naugatuck Valley Community College, John Jay College of Criminal Justice (CUNY), as well as at the Neighborhood Music School in his hometown of New Haven, CT.

As this is an indoor show, covid protocols are proof of vax and masks required.  The cost of the show is $10 at the door.
