  • Gary Karr

    I hope this isn't violating protocol but I know a lot of audiophiles appreciate Gary Karr. He is playing at Princeton University on Nov. 20 at 7:30pm in Richardson Auditorium.

    wow...this is a special concert...

    In June 2001, Gary Karr played his farewell public concert as part of the International Society of Bassists 2001 Convention in Indianapolis. A large audience that included eight hundred bassists from twenty-seven different countries attended this event. At the close of this recital with his pianist, Harmon Lewis, Karr was given the ISB's Distinguished Teacher Award. He was also presented with a very special gift from more than two hundred of his colleagues and fans…a newly developed rose named in his honor to commemorate his forty years on the international concert stage.

      Hell no! 👍

      I’d love to go if I wasn’t working that night!

      His playing and albums are spectacular.

        Gary was my teacher back in the '70s. He only plays a few concerts a year where he doesn't have to travel with his bass. I also work as a luthier and was able to supply him with an instrument he knows. He will also be playing with the Plainfield Symphony on Nov. 18th.
