Morgan Scott Trio

Appearing the first Friday of each month at The Java Room, the trio consists of Morgan Scott on piano, Sven Larson on bass and Ed Conley on drums, percussion. “We create adventurous music of the moment...”spontaneous composition” at times and traditional jazz standards at others. Sometimes a quick burst of an idea comes across one of our minds’ ear, and if we are free of ourselves we let that idea emerge. The rest of the group will react to the idea, or the idea presented exists as a counterpoint to whatever is already going on in the music.

Denison Witmer / Noah Gundersen

Denison Witmer is an indie singer/songwriter from Lancaster, Pennsylvania with a style described as "neo-folk." He is 15 years and nine albums into his career. Witmer has been compared to 1970s-era singer/songwriters, including Cat Stevens and Nick Drake. His lyrics are poetic and thoughtful. His guitar work, while simple sounding, relies on complex fingerpicking. Witmer’s latest album, The Ones Who Wait, was released on Asthmatic Kitty Records in February 2012.
