It’s always a joyous homecoming when the spectacular Laura Roth and Hui Cox return to The Park Theater. Join us for this very special concert!


Doors: 7pm | Showtime: 7:30pm


Laura Roth is a “show-stopper” (New York Post)

Laura Roth and Hui Cox are saluting months of self-sacrificing efforts by the essential workers of the Glens Falls Hospital, with
a very special concert– a quartet featuring their talents and two of the world’s greatest contemporary artists, known immediately
to musicians across the globe– drummer Mike Clark and bassist Essiet Okon Essiet.

       


About Mike Clark:

Mike Clark has a discography of seventy albums since 1974. He first gained world-wide recognition as a jazz and funk drummer
while playing with the legendary Herbie Hancock. It is said his work with Hancock garnered him an international cult following
and has influenced generations of drummers. He has performed with dozens of the greats of jazz and funk, such as Tony Bennett,
Bobby McFarren, Nat Adderly, Christian McBride, and Chet Baker.


About Essiet Okon Essiet

Essiet Okon Essiet is regarded by many as Manhattan’s premiere bassist, bringing a unique sound of mixed styles and cultures.
After touring the globe with famed South African pianist Abdullah Ibrahim, he joined Art Blakely and the Jazz Messengers and has
since performed and recorded with James Moody, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Burrell, Abby Lincoln, Dee Dee Bridgewater,
Kenny Garrett, Kurt Elling, and many more world renowned performers.

This very special thank-you event will be appreciated by every audience member regardless of their musical taste as these
musicians are simply the best in the business.

Ray Agnew, Glens Falls Hospital VP, will be the opening act.


Ray & Zane Agnew

Opening for Laura and Hui is the father/son duo of Ray Agnew and Zane Agnew. Many will recognize Ray from local performances and his work at Glens Falls Hospital; Zane is the lead guitarist/vocalist and co-songwriter in regional favorite band Hasty Page.  Zane is living and working in Nashville and also performing in American Idol finalist Julia Gargano’s band.  Ray can be found Sundays at Bay Road Church and at regional venues across the southern Adirondacks.  You can expect an eclectic mixture of Gypsy Jazz, folk, pop, and originals.
