* Eliot Seppa – Strathmore Residency

March 20, 2019 @ 7:30 pm
Strathmore Mansion
1610 14th St NW
Washington, DC 20009

Eliot Seppa is a rising talent on the bass, holding his own in a bassist-heavy town. In the past years, his broad, bounding sound has grown up; he now plays with the an assurance often reserved for much older players, even while retaining the verve of a youthful comer.

He performs as part of Strathmore’s “Artist-in-Residence” program on the 13th and 27th. He leads a workshop for musicians on the 20th.
