ABOUT THE CONCERT
Floyd Cramer is one of the most admired and beloved instrumentalists of all time. His distinctive “slip note” piano style is instantly identifiable and can be heard on the classic songs of countless pop, country, and rock legends, among them Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, Roy Orbison, the Everly Brothers, and Elvis Presley. Exemplified by his 1960 smash hit, “Last Date,” Floyd‘s unique touch at the piano was an essential part of the “Nashville Sound” during the 1950s and ’60s, and his far-reaching impact on the music industry led to his posthumous inductions into both the Country Music and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame.
Although his life was taken by cancer in 1997, Floyd‘s “piano magic” is still alive today through the music of his grandson, Jason Floyd Coleman.
In this concert, The Piano Magic of Floyd Cramer, Jason Coleman brings his grandfather’s famous “slip note” piano style to a nostalgic lineup of some of the most recognizable and heart-stirring songs of yesterday and today. “The most fun part for me,” Jason says, “is to see how much these songs mean to so many people – how just a few notes are all it takes to transport you to a different time and place. It’s really moving, and it’s what makes sharing Grandad’s music so special.”
