E sessant'anni li festeggia in questi giorni anche Elliott Sharp, con una serie di concerti e iniziative presso le sedi, quella attuale e quella in via di allestimento, dell'Issue Project Room a New York: www.issueprojectroom.org

Elliott Sharp, the endlessly creative guitarist, producer and composer, is celebrating his 60th birthday in two concerts at both of Issue Project Room’s current locations. The first concert, accompanied by a screening of a multi-media collaboration with actor Steve Buscemi and filmmaker Jo Andres, begins at 7:00 pm on March 4th at the venue’s new space at 110 Livingston in downtown Brooklyn. The celebration continues with a series of performances on March 5th at its current space at 3rd Ave and 3rd St in Brooklyn, beginning at 5:00 pm. In a fitting nod to his prolific career and wide-ranging musical output, the residency will feature music for solo guitar, guitar and spoken word with film, string quartet, double string quartet, Orchestra Carbon with Butch Morris, solo piano, guitar ensemble, and Sharp’s improvising rock band Bootstrappers with a host of special guests.
