Brackettology with Captain Chris at Denmark Arts Center 7/27/19

Updated: Jul 18, 2020

Saturday, July 27, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. Denmark Arts Center presents Brackettology with Captain Chris.

Brackett H. Clark, a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, engineer, and owner of Rising River Records, creates an evening with an eclectic mix of originals and rag jazz. Soulful, melodic, and memorable.

Brackett, who spent summers in Maine growing up, moved back to Maine in 2010 from Sonoma, Calif. In Sonoma, Clark had started his recording studio called Rising River Records that he is currently in the process of re-establishing in Denmark.

Brackett sang at former President Richard Nixon’s funeral - both were fellow graduates of Whittier College.

His band Transcendental Hayride opened for the Grateful Dead. You could say he knows a good thing when he hears it.

Brackett started classical piano at the age of 4 at Eastman School in Rochester NY. Through the many years there have been a few bands: The Free Range Chickens, Transcendental Hayride, and Work Trucks, who played recently at the DAC. The Work Trucks released their first record in 2015, Fishin’ Boat.

Brackett opened Rising River Records studio after having opened The Void record studio in the 90s during his Free Range Chicken time. Brackett Clark has worked with Lonnie Jordan, WAR, and Tommy Chong of Cheech and Chong.

The opening act for Brackettology is Captain Chris’s Solo Banjo Show!  Chris Mullins, currently of Javalina Records, was a former partner in Rising River Records. Chris will draw on an old time country repertoire arranged for solo banjo. He will definitely warm up the house for Brackettology and perhaps sit in on a few original pieces during the next set.

The doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the performance beginning at 7:00 p.m. Concessions will be available.
