performing with Ross Hammond – guitar
Drawing from their past/present musical collaboration and friendship, Ross Hammond and Amy Reed will present a set of improvised music for electric and acoustic guitars.
Amy Reed is a visual artist, songwriter, and composer. Amy lives and works in Sacramento’s diverse communities hit hardest by unemployment and recession. She teaches and advocates for free—open to all—art and music programs in public schools and community spaces, building space and materials for students and nurturing relationships with artists and under-served communities. Recently, her students’ work was exhibited at Sacramento State University. She is the founder of Ma, a creative music series presenting collaborations and solo performance by women: improvisers, composers, educators, and performing artists.
