Andrew Wilcox Trio @ XIX Carter Street
Andrew Wilcox is returning to his hometown for a very special trio performance! You will not want to miss this rare opportunity to see Andrew in Central Massachusetts.
Andrew Wilcox is a young pianist from Boylston, MA currently residing in the Hartford Area. Beginning piano lessons at age 4, Andrew studied classical piano under the tutelage of Dawn Bennett where he studied the works of Mozart and eventually the ragtime pianist Scott Joplin. As Andrew entered middle school, the high school band director at Tahanto Regional High School, bassist Rick Cain, took notice of Andrew and introduced him to jazz formally by exposing him to artists like Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, and Lee Morgan. Through this exposure, Andrew began studying under numerous musicians in the Worcester Area, most notably Dick Odgren, Rich Ardizzone, and Tucker Antell.
Andrew can currently be seen playing throughout the New England Region performing with his trio and sextet or as a sideman with a number of musicians including Leland Baker, Dan Gabel, Haneef Nelson, Ed Byrne, Rob Zapulla, Ed Fast, Jonathan Barber and the New London Big Band. Andrew has had the opportunity to play venues such as The Iridium Jazz Club, Black-Eyed Sally’s, Mechanics Hall, and the Butler-McCook House.
