Clarinet and Saxophone
Clarinet and saxophone
Ken Ulansey, Penn Council for the Arts winner and Pew finalist, plays alto and soprano sax, Irish whistle, and clarinet. He is a musical chameleon, having played contemporary classical music with Relache, jazz with his own award-winning band, Latin with Synthesis and Minas, and folk music with most of the area’s and even the nation’s leading songwriters.
Besides leading his own band that specializes in swing, Motown, Latin, pop, zydeco and oldies, Ken has toured extensively in Europe and the States, played on nearly two hundred recordings, and worked in collaboration with dancers, film-makers, poets and story-tellers.
