SYNCOPATED CLASSIC: THE LEGACY OF FRANK D. WALDRON
BHS partners with the 5th Ave Theatre to welcome Seattle Guitarist and composer Greg Ruby to present the music and life of Seattle Jazz pioneer, Frank D. Waldron (1890-1955). Waldron never became as famous as his star students Quincy Jones or Buddy Catlett but Waldron’s presence reaches back to the earliest days of jazz in Seattle. In 1907, he set up shop at 1242 Jackson Street near the epicenter of Seattle’s burgeoning jazz district. Come out to the Ragtime pre performance Community Conversation at the 5th Ave Theatre – Studio E to learn more.
