FREE Southern Village Outdoor Concerts on the Village Green with Erich Lieth and Saludos Company @ Southern Village Green
Aug 27 @ 6:00 pm

Concert on the Green-Double Billed Event

Erich Lieth – Jazz

Erich discovered his passion for improvising 40 years ago. He plays a range of instruments including recorders, flute, guitar and wind controller, though his specialty is keyboards. After completing his PhD work in Neuroscience at the University of North Carolina, he spent 20 years doing research and teaching Neuroscience and Anatomy but never gave up his love for playing and teaching music. He has taught individual and group lessons for the last 35 years, both for improvisation and conventional music lessons. He performs regularly with the Latin band Saludos Company, his world-beat vocal jazz group One Sun and other local groups. He teaches privately in Chapel Hill, directs the Emerson Waldorf School Jazz Band and instructs music invention for the Piedmont Youth and Family Orchestra. Since 2013, he has been the founder and Executive Music Director for the Blame It On My Youth Jazz Orchestra, a premier jazz ensemble of teen musicians. He strives to help people of all ages learn to express themselves through playing music.

Saludos Company – Latin Music

Saludos Company takes the audience on a musical tour that features traditional, contemporary and original music from Latin America and the Caribbean. This amazingly versatile trio keeps toes tapping.

Lead vocalist/guitarist Pablo Valencia, from Chile, sings a wide range of styles. He is as much at ease with a reflective bolero as with an upbeat salsa. The group performs a number of Valencia’s acclaimed original compositions, such as the romantic ‘Canción Para Dos’, the rumba ‘Bello Amor’, and the very upbeat salsa song ‘Entumido’. On keyboards, Erich Lieth adds spice to the strong Latin rhythms with improvisational piano solos and bass. Chuck Nolan, lead percussionist, intricately weaves the rhythm patterns, be it for a subtle bossa nova or a danceable cumbia.
