After a short break, Cleveland will perform, around 8 p.m. The Berklee College of Music alum performs original and reinterpreted jazz, R&B and blues, solo and in numerous duos, trios and quartets. Also a composer, music educator and recording studio pianist, he has just released his fifth CD, “Scott Cleveland: Live in Castine.”

Cleveland’s musical director and pit band credits include shows in Surry, Stonington and Ellsworth; and he has composed commissioned works for piano, chorus and orchestra. He is music director for the First Congregational Church of Deer Isle/Sunset, an adjunct music faculty member at the University of Maine at Augusta and teaches jazz piano privately. During the 2017-18 academic year, he will present his seminar/concert “The Blues Spectrum” at Colby College in Waterville
