Old Time Musketry

Old Time Musketry presents a joyous music that draws on the exuberant spirit of early jazz, the poignant melodies and soulful grooves of rock and folk music, the energy and spontaneity of free improvisation, and a willfully experimental attitude towards combining these elements into a unique vision of American music. Old Time Musketry joined forces in early 2009 in Brooklyn and has been developing their unique sound by performing widely in the New York area and around the Northeast.

Born in Portland, Maine and educated at the New England Conservatory in Boston (where he studied with Steve Lacy, Bob Brookmeyer, and Joe Morris among others), saxophonist and clarinetist Adam Schneit has been a vital presence on the New York music scene since moving to Brooklyn in 2006. Aside from sharing the stage with jazz legends and up-and-coming originals such as Lacy, Drew Gress, Eivind Opsvik, George Schuller, and Jacob Sacks, Adam has contributed his voice and wide-ranging aesthetic to the work of singer-songwriters Heather Masse, Sofia Koutsovitis, and Noam Weinstein. His roles as both leader and sideman have brought him from Lima, Peru (Lima International Jazz Festival) to Aspen, Colorado, to tours of the Northeast and Midwest with several bands.
