THE STONE RESIDENCIES
CONNIE CROTHERS
I will be performing in every set with these great musicians–from Tuesday, August 19 through Sunday, the 24th. I am very happy about this, especially since every set will be very different from the other sets. Not only are the musicians different, the way they approach improvisation is different. A friend, noting this, said, "You like a challenge." I responded, "Yes, I thrive from a challenge. That is where the fun is." That's also where the surprises are, and the joy.
