Concert: Sarah Hughes' Coy Fish - Album Release


Washington Women in Jazz Festival presents...
Sunday March 18        7pm                    $15/adv, $20/door

“Coy Fish” is an improvising ensemble led by woodwind artist and composer, Sarah Hughes. The ensemble consists of Sam Burt on daxophone, Dan Ostrow on double bass, and Nate Scheible on percussion, and is a colorful and immersive fusion of sounds from free jazz, noise, experimental, and earth soundscapes.  This performance is in celebration of the release of Hughes’ first album and is coupled with a showing of her original prose and visual art.

Alto saxophonist and composer Sarah Hughes brings her singular voice and vision to the jazz and avant garde music spheres. Known for and an unapologetically personal approach to music, as well as mastery of the instrument, Sarah is a singular visionary in the Washington music scene. A graduate of the New England Conservatory, she brings music to her audience that appears to have no boundaries.

In her own words, Sarah Hughes offers “an expression of the feeling of having a head full of heavy thoughts that churn, froth, and bubble out in the form of giggles, gibberish, gargles, screams, cries, sirens, prayers, and whooping calls.”
