“Over the years, I’ve taken my music and tried to cross-pollinate it with music from different parts of the world,” stated Cook. “For me, the question has always been: Where did you go? Where did you take your guitar?”
The answer on February 26, is Cleveland.
“Jesse is amazing,” stated Denny Young, Elevation Group President and Cathedral Concerts’ executive producer. “His style is unique, his sound is crisp and his personality is electric.”
“We are very pleased to welcome Jesse Cook to Trinity. The guitarist is a wonderful addition to the diversity of musicians brought to the Cathedral by Elevation,” says the Very Rev. Tracey Lind, Dean of Trinity Cathedral," and we can’t wait for him to fill our sacred space with his rich nuevo flamenco sound."
