Peter & Will Anderson and Leslie Boyle make their Provincetown Jazz Festival debuts!
Monday, August 16, 7:30pm
Peter & Will Anderson “Virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone” (New York Times), are identical twins and are two of the most extraordinary jazz woodwind players today. Born and raised in Washington D.C., the Andersons moved to New York City to attend The Juilliard School. They’ve performed with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Wycliffe Gordon, Paquito D’Rivera and can be heard on the 2014 Grammy-winning soundtrack of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire with Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks. They’ve headlined at The Blue Note, Kennedy Center, New Orleans Jazz Festival, and live on Garrison Keillor’s Prairie Home Companion Radio Program. The Andersons have headlined in over 45 U.S. states, throughout Brazil, Japan, the U.K., and six times in NYC’s famed “Highlights in Jazz” series, alongside Jimmy Heath, Ken Peplowski, Steve Turre, and Jimmy Cobb. Vanity Fair magazine listed their debut album in “Four New Releases to Make You Love Jazz,” and the Washington Post called their music “imaginatively unfolding in ways that consistently bring a fresh perspective to classic jazz.” Peter & Will Anderson will be accompanied by Fred Boyle on piano, Ron Ormsby on bass, and Bart Weisman on drums.
Leslie Boyle (vocals) opens the concert and came to Cape Cod when she was 10-years-old and her first solo performance was in 8th grade when she sang in front of an audience of over 400 people and received her first standing ovation. Leslie can be found performing across Cape Cod for concerts, events, parties, and restaurants with the Bart Weisman Jazz Group, Cape Symphony Jazz Ensemble (big band), Cape Cod Jazz Quintet, and pianist/husband Fred Boyle. Leslie is a versatile singer with a wide range of musical styles. Leslie will be accompanied by Alan Clinger on guitar, Fred Boyle on piano, Ron Ormsby on bass, and Bart Weisman on drums.
