Mark Yacovone, originally from Providence, Rhode Island, now makes his home in Oxford, Mississippi, where he holds a key position in the Yalobushwhackers, the house band for Mississippi Public Radio’s weekly, live, and unrehearsed Thacker Mountain Radio show. Yacovone studied jazz under three-time Latin Grammy nominee Gustavo Casenave and has shared the stage and/or the studio with musical greats Mojo Nixon, Jody Williams, Buddy Cage, Maria Muldaur, Jeff Daniels, Charlie Musselwhite, and Jack Sonni, just to name a few.  Yacovone will end the semester’s Brown Bag series by playing jazz standards and jazz interpretations of several songs you might not expect to hear on piano.

The Brown Bag Lecture Series takes place at noon on Wednesdays in the Tupelo Room of Barnard Observatory unless otherwise noted. Visit for more information.
