The acclaimed singing actress will offer The Tree of Life Aug. 2 at 7 PM.
Huffman, along with saxophonist Michael Hashim, will "celebrate, challenge and sometimes twist into oblivion traditional jazz with their musical collaboration . . . a tribute to the loves, lives and losses that have shaped their love of music." They will be joined by Ed MacCeachen on guitar, Kelly Freisen on bass and Willard Dyson on drums.
