  • Medeski, Martin, and Wood discuss music, technique, and more

Instrumental trio Medeski, Martin, and Wood will host a pre-show masterclass and meet-and-greet this evening (Feb. 9) at Tivoli Studios (656 King St.) before heading to the Pour House for their big show tonight.

Drummer Billy Martin, keyboardist John Medeski, and bassist Chris Wood haven’t performed in Charleston since 2006. Their latest album, MSMW Live: In Case the World Changes its Mind (Indirecto), is a double live collection featuring guest guitarist John Scofield.

The masterclass at Tivoli is scheduled for 5:30-7:30 p.m. Admission is $20 (or $15 with the purchase of a ticket to the Pour House show). It’s an all-ages event.

“In this unique experience, Medeski, Martin, and Wood will explore how they create music, provide insight into their 20 year long career,” says the band’s publicist. “The audience will have the opportunity to ask questions. Following the masterclass we can all nibble and nosh on Butcher & Bee and Roti Rolls, mingle, and drink craft beer and wine.”
