Chris Morrissey's Standard Candle / Jeff Taylor (w/Jesske Hume & Josh Dion)
$10 Suggested Donation
Standard Candle is music originally written by Chris Morrissey for The Jazz Gallery's 2015 Residency Commission. It was premiered there, and has been played only rarely since. The songs are intended as monuments to mark a parting of ways, declarations of love for the world, prayers for understanding and spaces for Chris, Grey, Josh and Nick to explore.

Come on through for a stellar night of stripped-down music as five talented songwriters hit the stage to perform their work in the round. I will be joining host/singer-songwriter JEREMY SCHONFELD along with songwriters MAXIMILLIAN SANGERMAN, CASSANDRA KUBINSKI, and DANIEL PLENGE. Each will perform 3 original songs, telling the stories behind their music, and potentially jumping in to lend a musical helping hand for each other on a tune or two! Always a wonderful and intimate ride....Don't miss out!
