About the Event

Lapis Trio is an acoustic group featuring the compositions of Chicago based jazz guitarist Casey

Nielsen. The music draws on his study of the classical guitar and modern jazz. Lapis Trio’s

unique instrumentation of classical guitar (Casey Nielsen) upright bass (Dan Thatcher) and

Percussion (Tim Mulvenna) provide a rich, dynamic acoustic setting. Their new album, The

Travelers, will be released March 2019 on Shifting Paradigm Records. Through The Travelers,

Casey imagines what he might write if his occupation was to perform a composition every

evening for the rest of his community upon their return from work. Every piece would need to

immediately engage the audience, by being unique and entertaining. The music, like the

returning community members, would need to travel in some sense and then come home. And

so he traveled, wrote, performed and returned home.
