Jazz at Infinity featuring Bill Ward

bill ward

On Friday, May 27, 2016 the Infinity Jazz Concert Series will feature An Evening With Bill Ward, at 7:00 pm at the Infinity Arts Café.

The evening will feature Chautauqua Music Hall Of Fame vocalist/guitarist, Bill Ward. Now in his fourth decade of performing, he was a part of the burgeoning ‘70s folk/acoustic scene in the area, eventually finding his way to Austin, Texas where he “found his voice” performing in the town where artists like Nanci Griffith, Townes Van Zandt, and Jerry Jeff Walker had also cut their musical teeth.

In 2002, Ward founded the Mayville Bluegrass Festival, which has garnered international attention, featuring artists such as Vassar Clements, Peter Rowan, Claire Lynch, Tony Rice, and Norman Blake as well as some of the nation’s best young bluegrass performers. His most recent cd release, “The Christmas Sessions”, features Ward with the Doerfels.

Bill Ward has been named “Artist of the Year” by the Chautauqua County Arts Council, “Promoter of the Year” for his festival and collaborative work, and “Artist in Residence for Jazz Contribution to Christian Praise” at Chautauqua Institution.

Joining Bill Ward will be John Cross. John and Bill have been performing together for three decades in many venues throughout the county and beyond. Their latest CD, Highway In The Desert, has been a best seller at CDbaby.com. Ward and Cross will play a variety of songs from blues to Texas swing that will delight audiences of all ages.

The concert is free and open to the public. Enter the former USPS door on the corner of 3rd Street.
