JONATHAN BUTLER with special guest ELAN TROTMAN & Tropicality

Sponsored by: John Lyman Center for the Performing Arts

Enjoy an end of summer jazz concert that is infused with tropical and South African musical flavor with a special double bill featuring Elan Trotman opening for Jonathan Butler.  Jonathan has been using his gifts of song, composition and instrumentation to communicate the messages of his soul. Butler, an acclaimed guitarist and vocalist, has used music as a springboard from that boyhood in which he shared a three-bedroom shack with his parents, 12 siblings, and another 13 nieces and nephews while growing up in South Africa. He remains a captivating and powerful performer, pour- ing his heart into selections from his immense catalogue.  His soaring, gritty but beautiful voice transports listeners to deeper realms both emotionally and spiritually.
