Eliot returns to Colorado to work with his lifelong friend Bruce Adolphe in the creation of a new work for solo guitar. Eliot met Bruce in the summer of 1969 when both were students at a small music camp in Vermont called Kinhaven. The collaboration continued in later at the Aspen Music Festival and in various projects for the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and elsewhere.
Bruce Adolphe describes the upcoming project as follows:
“The premiere of my new work for Eliot Fisk will be on July 1st in Fort Collins, Colorado, as part of the Off the Hook Arts Festival. The piece is called Suite for Pete and it is dedicated to the memory of Pete Seeger, folk musician and a revolutionary in the protest song movement for peace, human rights, environmentalism, and freedom. The movements are When Will We Ever Learn?, Fannie Lou Hammer, Chief Joseph, and Let it Shine. This work pays tribute to Eliot’s life long interest in issues of social justice as well as to our friendship of 45 years.”
