Pianist, Phish-devotee Holly Bowling to perform at The Tin Pan
September 07 2016 - Debut album is “Distillation of a Dream: The Music of Phish Reimagined For Solo Piano", 8 p.m., $15
Pianist Holly Bowling will perform at 8 p.m. at The Tin Pan, 8982 Quioccasin Rd. Bowling is a classically trained pianist devoted to the legendary rock band Phish. Having attended over 300 shows by the Burlington-based quartet, she became obsessed by their famous rendition of “Tweezer” from Lake Tahoe on July 31, 2013. It led Bowling to transcribe this 37-minute improvisational masterpiece note-for-note and arrange it for solo piano. That journey led to her debut album, “Distillation of a Dream: The Music of Phish Reimagined For Solo Piano,” a 2-CD set featuring 15 songs, three of which were transcribed from live renditions, including “Tweezer.” Tickets are $15.
