Scott Kirby performing at Washington’s Mainstreet Souvenirs

Oct 13, 2017
Pianist Scott Kirby will be performing a multimedia set during Washington’s Mainstreet Souvenirs on Monday, Oct. 23.

Scott Kirby will present a multimedia stage performance, which features live piano music, spoken narrative, and a video presentation in Washington on Monday, Oct. 23, in the Washington Community Theater at 7:30 p.m. This performance is part of the Washington Concert Association concert series.

The music in the first half of the program will span about 150 years of American pop, jazz and folk music, including tunes by Scott Joplin, Stephen Foster, John Philip Sousa and others continuing up to the present time.

The second half of the program will feature Kirby’s original compositions for piano, his original paintings, and old photos all joined together as he plays the piano and talks about the history of the American Great Plains and prairies. The visual “projected” dimension of the program accompanies both the narrative and the music throughout the second half. Kirby talks about small town American life and times and his comments will bring back wonderful memories to the members of the audience.

Scott was first a musician and fine pianist, but his artistic passion grew to include visual art. He now lives in Boulder, Colo. and divides his time between composing, painting, performing and teaching.
