Alert! Frisell Impostor on the Loose

We would like everyone to know that there is a person misrepresenting him or herself on a fraudulent Bill Frisell Facebook page (that’s being shut down) offering lessons and workshops to cheat Frisell fans, admirers and presenters out of money by asking for advance payments on ficticious appointments and events that will never happen. As a point of information, the demands of Bill’s schedule do not allow him to give private lessons. Should you wish to present Bill in a workshop situation associated with a performance in the U.S, please contact Michael Morris at Monterey International/Paradigm; for Europe, Jakob Flarer at Saudades; and for the rest of the world, Phyllis Oyama at Songtone. To contact Michael, Jakob or Phyllis, go to the Contacts link.
