Family Night in the Park: The Sarah Goslee Reed Trio


Aug 13, 2017
06:00pm – 08:00pm

Steele Memorial Bandstand/Gazebo (map)

Natives of Mount Vernon, Ohio, The Sarah Goslee Reed Trio will provide an evening of folk music at this week’s Family Night in the Park.

Growing up, there was always mu­sic in the Goslee house. Sarah Gos­lee Reed’s father played the bassoon, and her mother played the cello and string bass.

Based upon her love for 1960s folk music and her knowledge of the vio­lin, Goslee Reed taught herself to play the guitar. She learned to play songs by ear from listening to records.

Throughout her musical career, Goslee Reed has written more than six al­bums, each with a different focus.

Her album, It’s About Time, is a tribute to her father, George, a former bassoonist with the Cleveland Orches­tra. His bassoon is also featured in the albums Like the Light of the Moon and Cowboy on the Highway.

In 2012, Goslee Reed launched Plenty, an album about the Earth, gardens, planting trees and feeding the soul.

While recording Plenty, the band Firefly was formed. Firefly, also known as The Sarah Goslee Reed Trio, consists of Reed (guitar and vocals), Tom Martin (bass and piano) and Skip Trask (drums).
