Curt Newton

Curt Newton (b. 1963) coaxes whispers from drumsets and swing from stacks of rattly stuff, weaving varied musical traditions together in the spirit of serious playfulness. Over the past three decades he's performed across the U.S., Canada and Europe and recorded over 30 CDs with some of contemporary music's leading figures including Ken Vandermark, Joe Morris, Nate McBride, Pandelis Karayorgis, Jorrit Dijkstra, Eric Hofbauer, Charlie Kohlhase, Steve Norton, and Dave Bryant. Curt studied privately with Bob Gullotti and has a Master's degree in Jazz Performance from New England Conservatory.

Curt is also a climate change community builder and activist, and the proud parent of two musically inclined young adults.
