Leo Yucht Quartet to perform March 9

NORTH BENNINGTON — The Vermont Arts Exchange will present the Leo Yucht Quartet on Friday, March 9, at 8 p.m., at Powers Market. Joining Yucht on drums will be some of New York City's finest jazz performers: Ian Kenselaar on bass, Nick Masters on piano and Daniel Berkey on tenor saxophone.

Yucht graduated from Mount Anthony Union High School in 2013, then headed off to William Paterson University, graduating in 2017. Now based in NYC, Yucht continues to forge ahead, drumming and composing in the world of jazz. He has performed with some of the most acclaimed musicians in the world, including Jon Batiste, Aaron Goldberg, Harold Mabern, Johnny O'Neal, Pete Malinverni and many more.

Yucht performs regularly in the New York metropolitan area with his band, and also as a sideman with other world-renowned jazz artists. He returns to the Bennington for this rare show with Vermont Arts Exchange, where he has performed twice before.

Powers Market will transform its space into an after-hours jazz club for this performance. The evening will feature a cash bar by Thyme Tables Catering, as well as salad and home cooked pizza, so come by earlier.
