Paul Thompson Plays Allegheny County Parks Unplugged (Fri., 7/17/20)

If summer 2020 has given us a lot of lemons, then why not make lemonade. That is what Allegheny County has done with their summer music program. If we can’t gather on blankets close to a stage this summer, then gather round the electronic digital hearth with loved ones and enjoy some music from a sylvan setting. Parks Unplugged showcases talented local performers playing in a pretty setting from an Allegheny County park and shown via the County’s Facebook and YouTube Channel pages each Friday evening at 7 p.m. This evening’s performer is jazz bassist Paul Thompson. He has toured with jazz legends Stanley Turrentine and Maynard Ferguson. Current gigs include Salsamba!, Toth Trio, Pittsburgh Jazz Orchestra, and several pit orchestras for theatrical productions.
