Accordionist, pianist and composer Christopher Haynes is joined by guitarist Anand Nayak, pianist Stephen Page and percussionist Russ Nieman for an evening of his own compositions, which vary in style from Celtic to Jazz, Balkan and Classical; while never staying in those boundaries in any particular way. Put another way, this music takes the accordion out of its comfort zone, with a little something for any and all listeners.
Christopher Haynes is the long-time director of music at Springfield College. He is also on the faculty of the Northampton Community Music Center, and has a busy freelance career as a music producer, arranger and performer, working with groups of all ages such as the Spirit of the Hills chorus and the Young at Heart. He resides with his three children in Northampton, MA.
