This will be the Vortex Series’ first event held at Zumix. Zumix is a gorgeous spot in a converted firehouse in East Boston. They are focused on music education and community outreach, and hold concerts as well. It might appear that Zumix is buried in an obscure location in East Boston. Do not despair! The location is just a few minutes walk from the Maverick T Station, and a few minutes drive from the Mass Pike. We have a wonderful lineup which will consist of several contemporary music artists in the Boston area. Info below.

Glenn Dickson, microtonal clarinet.
The bandleader of Naftule’s Dream and Shirim Klezmer Orchestra. Glenn has toured and recorded with Hypnotic Clambake, Joe Maneri, Taximi (Greek). Featured on the soundtracks of the feature films “A Stranger Among Us” (Sidney Lumet) and “Deconstructing Harry” (Woody Allen).

John McLellan, percussionist
Has toured and recorded with Pandelis Karayorgis, Blaise Siwula, Matt Maneri and has an extensive discography. A frequent feature with the Vortex Series, John mixes a blend of groove and poly-rhythm.
