The acoustic trio of Menten, Thunem & Nye will perform at the Music in the Park Series in Staples on Sunday, July 14, at 7 p.m.
Featuring violinist Jeff Menten, finger style guitarist Paul Nye, and bassist Keith Thumen, the trio offers a unique blend of acoustic music that cleverly weaves modern and old time classics, and Celtic and Scandinavian tunes with ragtime, blues, gypsy jazz, along with classical pieces and some original music as well.
The group lightheartedly refers to their music as “Funky Folk, Punky Polka, Grassy Blues, Cool Classical and Gypsy Jazz.”
As seasoned veteran musicians, Menten, Thunem and Nye have individually logged tens of thousands of miles and performed nearly as many shows in their respective musical careers.
All are invited to join this acoustic trio for a slice of festive fun punctuated by musical mastery entertainment at its finest.
The Music in the Park Concerts are held in the Northern Pacific (NP) Park on Sunday evenings at 7 p.m. and will run through Aug. 11. For more information on the Music in the Park series as well as the regular concert series, check out www.staplesmotleyarts.org.
