CANCELED: Jazz in the Valley presents Christopher Dean Sullivan Trio at STARWALK on 8/12

CANCELED due to forecasts of inclement weather.

Jazz in the Valley presents the Christopher Dean Sullivan Trio, performing on the Walkway at the bumpout on the east side of the Walkway on Sunday, August 12 during the STARWALK (weather permitting).

This project is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by Arts Mid-Hudson.


Originally from Pittsburg, the Hudson Valley is now home for this creative artist. Sullivan has shared the stage in performance and recorded with Archie Schepp, Sheila Jordan, Yusef Lateef, Odean Pope, Freddie Hubbard to name a few.

“… Sullivan plays not just the upright bass strings but the bass itself, throwing himself into the performance not to draw the spotlight, but to impart a palpable joie de vive to go with his rhythmic, rippling (think Charlie Haden) bass tones.”
