At 7:30 p.m. on Friday, August 17, in the Encore Theatre, the Seth Kibel Quartet will be performing many of our favorites from the “Great American Songbook.” Seth Kibel is one of the Mid-Atlantic region’s premier woodwind specialists, working with some of the best bands in jazz, swing, and more. Wowing audiences on saxophone, clarinet, and flute, Seth has made a name for himself in Baltimore, Washintgon, and beyond.
Seth has released five albums. His latest was in 2015 by the Azalea City Recordings record label. One song from that album, “New Waltz,” was the grand prize winner of 2016 Mid-Atlantic song contest (MASC), sponsored by the Songwriters Association of Washington (SAW).
In 2002, he was commissioned to write, perform, and record an original score for Dreams in the Golden Country, an original theatrical production at the Kennedy Center.
Seth can also currently be seen with some of the Washington/Baltimore area’s most exciting swing and jump blues bands. He has performed at the Kennedy Center, the Carter Barron Amphitheatre, and the Lowell Folk Festival in Lowell, MA, as well as on several European tours.
The Seth Kibel Quartet will feature Seth on saxophone, clarinet, and flute, Sean Lane on piano, Bob Abbot on double bass, and Wes Crawford on drums.
