Return of the clarinetist
Nowadays Harrison leads various groups, but his most original and successful has been Mama's Licking Stick Clarinet Ensemble, an award-winning group featuring almost the full range of clarinets (including the low bass and even lower contrabass), which brings to the fore his varied talents as clarinetist, composer, and arranger. Joined by guest artist Howard Johnson on bass clarinet and tuba, Harrison appears with his clarinet ensemble at Kerrytown Concert House on Saturday, April 19.
