Rhythm & Ramble Kicks Off NAN Big Sky Series
September 25, 2019
The Northern Arts Network Big Sky Series is back. Rhythm & Ramble kicks off this year’s concert series on Tuesday, Oct. 1, in the Glasgow High School Auditorium from 7 to 9 p.m.
Led by Colby Tinsley and Tyler de Caussin, Rhythm & Ramble is based in Bozeman, Mont. The jazz small group is composed of Tinsley (reeds and voice), de Caussin (guitar), Anna Hatcher (upright bass), and Alex Platt (drums). Founded upon a shared passion for pre-war American jazz, the acoustic swing band builds on that unique legacy. Rhythm & Ramble refashions the spirit and heart of classic melodies into a fresh and modern setting.
Tinsley, a student at Montana State University, is a saxophonist and vocalist from Spokane, Wash. In addition to Rhythm & Ramble, he performs with Permafunk, The Royal We, and the Bridger Mountain Big Band. De Caussin began playing pre-bebop jazz guitar during his time at Montana State University. He also performs with the Bridger Mountain Big Band and Michelle Manzo Quartet.
Hatcher, also a student at Montana State University, began playing classical upright bass in 5th grade. She also plays with Howard Beall & The Fake News, The Royal We, and Croc Pot. Platt returns to Montana after many years in Los Angeles, where he earned his degree in jazz from the California Institute of the Arts. In Bozeman he performs and teaches.
Tickets for the concerts will be available at the door and are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and $10 for students.
The Big Sky Series is made possible in part by the Montana Performing Arts Consortium Presenter Development Program which is supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, Montana Arts Council, and a legislative grant from Montana’s Cultural Trust.
