Mads Tolling & Dave Macnab–Saturday, August 3

Mads Tolling & Dave Macnab

This concert is sold out

We’re thrilled to have internationally renowned Danish-American violinist and composer Mads Tolling back at Fifth Street. As a member of both bassist Stanley Clarke’s band and the celebrated Turtle Island Quartet, Mads won two Grammy Awards and was nominated for a third. Mads has performed with Chick Corea, Ramsey Lewis, Kenny Barron, Paquito D’Rivera, Leo Kottke and Sergio & Odair Assad.

This evening Mads will collaborate with jazz guitarist Dave Macnab. Dave is one of the first-call guitar players in the Bay Area, and is currently lead guitarist for “Hamilton” at the Orpheum Theater. Dave performs as a guest artist with symphony orchestras around the Bay, and has worked with musicians such as Bob Weir, Barry Manilow and Brian McKnight.

Mads and Dave met eight years ago through the eclectic San Francisco jazz scene, and they have worked together as part of the Mads Tolling Quartet many times, including at Yoshi’s, SF Jazz and Yerba Buena Gardens. For us they’ll perform songs from the Great American Songbook, a Danish folk song or two and a few of their own compositions. The two will pay special homage to Mads’ heroes growing up: jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli and “The Fiddling Viking” Svend Asmussen.

Don’t miss a rare opportunity to hear these amazing musicians in an intimate setting. Join us on August 3, and check out some violin and guitar duets from Mads’ recent album here.
