Bill Frisell to perform Thursday, May 12
at the Old Rock House

Guitarist Bill Frisell (pictured) is coming to St. Louis to perform on Thursday, May 12 at the Old Rock House, 1200 S. 7th St.

Though considered primarily a jazz guitarist, Frisell incorporates a variety of influences into his music, including country, folk and Americana; classical; noise; and free improv. He's worked with a diverse range of artists from jazz, rock and pop, including Paul Motian, John Zorn, Wayne Horvitz, Elvis Costello, Bono, T-Bone Burnett, Paul Simon, McCoy Tyner, Ornette Coleman, Brian Eno and Ry Cooder.

Frisell's St. Louis show is part of the ORH's "Listening Room Series," for which the club adds more tables and chairs and offers reserved seating to create a cabaret-type setting. It will feature the guitarist in a quartet with trumpeter Ron Miles, bassist Tony Scherr and drummer Kenny Wollesen.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m., with showtime at 8:30 p.m. Tickets will go on sale at 5:00 p.m. next Wednesday, February 16 via Metrotix. Prices are $35 for reserved seating, $26 for general admission, and the show is open only to ages 21 and over.
