SEAN NOONAN'S BREWED BY NOON DELIVERS A RICH BLEND OF TRADITIONS ON STORIES TO TELL
Drummer/composer Sean Noonan describes Brewed by Noon as tribal rhythms by an Irish griot....My goal is to adapt folklore in a modern jazz context, merging storytelling and folk music from bardic and griot traditions."
The stories that Sean tells with Brewed by Noon are as diverse as the musicians he has surrounded himself with for the project - he expanded the core players who comprised Brewed by Noon's first incarnation as a quartet (guitarists Aram Bajakian and Senegalese bassist Thierno Camara) with the addition of downtown jazzers like guitarist Marc Ribot and Mat Maneri on viola, Malian vocalist Abdoulaye Diabate, Irish gaelic folk/rock singer Susan McKeown.
Sean Noonan is currently brewing up new compositions that will be featured on next Brewed by Noon album that will be recorded this December.
What: Brewed by Noon featuring Thierno Camara-bass/vocals, Aram Bajakian -guitar, Mat Maneri - viola, Abdoulaye Diabate - vocals, and Sean Noonan - drums
