The final tri-centennial themed program of Clarinet Road's May residency will feature the New Orleans A-listers featured on his last CD, Bayou Chant. David Torkanowsky, Roland Guerin and Brian Seeger help Evan Christopher in his quest for giving the New Orleans clarinet a contemporary voice.
 
Christopher, a 2018 nominee for "clarinetist of the year" by the Jazz Journalism Association, stands out for his dynamic exploration of traditional New Orleans music. Critics have recognized his commitment to extending his instrument's legacy as "a triumph, joining the present seamlessly to a glorious past" (THE OBSERVER, U.K.) and have remarked on his predilection for acoustic presentations coining his style "close-encounter music" (NEW YORK TIMES).
