The Village Trip Presents:
Ah, Let’s go Back to the Village

a Guitar Marathon

September 10, 2022
4PM to 10PM

St. John’s in the Village

Eventbrite ticket link will be live by August 1

Celebrate the Kerouac centenary with the premiere of David Amram’s new Kerouac songs, commissioned for The Village Trip, entitled, “Ah Let’s Go Back to the Village”. Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars kicks off at 4PM. 20 classical guitarists wrap up, joining David Amram, who will jam on his Beat jazz standard, “Pull My Daisy”.

David Amram and his great friend Jack Kerouac caroused the Village in the 50s and 60s. David Amram is a living legend, well known for his lush filmscores for Elia Kazan’s Splendor in the Grass and Frankenheimer’s Manchurian Candidate. He was the first composer-in-residence for the NY Philharmonic during Bernstein’s tenure. Amram’s Kerouac settings, celebrating the Kerouac centenary, were commissioned for the Village Trip by the Roger Shapiro Fund for New Music. This guitar slam focuses on Village composers and Village poets, featuring the most brilliant and resourceful guitarists from the tri-state area.

Tilted Axes will kick it off with its orchestra of mobile electric guitarists, departing St. John’s in the Village at 2:30, performing a procession around Greenwich Village, bewitching the Villagers with new music soundscapes. Tilted Axes returns to St. John’s in the Village at 4 to launch the guitar marathon.
