The Music House Museum is proud to welcome Grammy Award winning pianist Paul Sullivan and notable cellist Crispin Campbell on Thursday September 28 at 7:00PM. They are returning to the stage for a tour of Michigan in Fall 2023. The two musicians first played together more than 15 years ago and are excited to re-kindle their musical collaboration. Their program will be a journey from jazz standards and Latin grooves to original blues and world music. The driving rhythm of Paul’s energized piano and the expressively soulful sound of Crispin’s cello will weave a tapestry of musical colors giving Michigan audiences a memorable experience.
Paul Sullivan has enjoyed a richly varied and distinguished career as a composer and a pianist. As a soloist, with his trio, and as a member of the Paul Winter Consort, he has played concert tours in most of the United States and Europe, as well as the Middle East, Central America, and Asia.
Crispin Campbell’s musical style reflects his individuality. In a typical performance he makes seamless transitions from J.S.Bach to Sun Ra to Django Reinhardt, earning the label “a musician who defies categories.” After establishing himself as a teacher of classical tradition at Interlochen Arts Academy, Crispin found himself returning to his original interest in improvisation, which led him to playing Celtic music, followed by a progression to old-time music, Delta blues, tango, Brazilian choro and jazz.
