The West Falmouth Library will host the live music experience, “Avian Improv,” on Sunday, November 14, at 5 PM.
“Avian Improv” is the brainchild of painter and photographer Lanny McDowell and pianist David Stanwood, both residents of Martha’s Vineyard. Visitors will watch a slideshow of Mr. McDowell’s evocative bird photography while David Stanwood improvises interludes on piano. Mr. McDowell and Mr. Stanwood first collaborated in 2005. Since then, they have brought their concerts to venues across the Cape and islands.
The cost for the concert is $15. Proof of vaccination and masks are required to attend the concert. Tickets can be purchased on the library’s website.
Lanny McDowell was born in Kent, Connecticut, and moved to Martha’s Vineyard year-round in 1970. He is a painter and a photographer, and says of his art, “I believe in paying attention to the marvels that surround us. My art, paintings and avian photographs, has been about expressing my awe and respect for powerful natural cycles: in my paintings, the patterns of wind and water that drive waves to our shores; in my photographs, it’s the wondrous life cycles of the birds that share the planet with us and inspire us.”
David Stanwood works as a piano tuner and rebuilder on Martha’s Vineyard. His inventions for improving the sound and touch of pianos are recognized and taught internationally. He loves photography and is a performing/recording pianist known for his gently soothing and original improvisational style.
