The Cleveland/Bradley Concert Association (Bradley Concert Inc.) presents Jason Coleman on Thursday at 1 p.m. at the Conn Center on the campus of Lee University.

This concert is free to all school-age students, and will last about 50 minutes.

Coleman is the grandson of the late, great Floyd Crammer, one of the most-admired instrumentalists of all time.

His signature piano styling is exemplified by his smash hit, “Last Date,” and he can be heard on classic songs by countless music legends, including Patsy Cline, Roy Orbison and Elvis Presley.

Blessed with talent inherited from his grandfather, Coleman has played the piano since he was barely able to reach the keys.

Over time, Coleman’s playing style has progressed and matured into an uncanny reflection of the signature “slip note” styling of his granddad.

After Coleman made his Grand Ole Opry debut at the age of 17, he was given the honor of playing for the Country Music Hall of Fame Medallion Ceremony recognizing his grandfather’s induction into the Hall of Fame.

Coleman’s 1 p.m. program will be geared toward a school-age audience. We hope many schools and students will take advantage of this free opportunity.

Coleman will be in full concert at 7 Thursday evening at The Conn Center. If you do not have a season ticket, you may purchase a ticket for the evening performance for $25.
