Brush Life - A Musical Tribute to Dr Willis Kirk
Dr. Willis Kirk is one of the greatest jazz musicians / educators to hail from Indianapolis. Dr. Kirk performed in early bands with jazz greats ‘Duke’ Ellington, Earl ‘Fatha’ Hines, Lionel Hampton, Tony Bennett, Charlie Parker, Wes, Buddy, and Monk Montgomery.

This concert served as a tribute to his memory and to call attention to the newly established scholarship fund: Dr. Willis F Kirk Scholarship Fund.

This musical experience featuring great Indianapolis repertoire from Freddie Hubbard, Wes Montgomery and Dr Kirk will be curated by ...

Brian Kirk - drums
Rob Dixon - sax
Kareem Kandi - sax
Nick Tucker - bass
Ryan Taylor - guitar
Clifford Ratliff - trumpet

Make plans to attend the BrushFire workshop on Saturday, August 5th at 1p - hosted by Brian Kirk (Willis' son) on brush techniques (Willis was a brush guru). Also in the workshop are Nick Tucker - bass & Kareen Kandi on sax.
