Trachy/Lacy Collective

Seth Trachy

Saxophonist/composer Seth Trachy was raised on a farm in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains and spent his childhood exploring the Appalachian wilderness and absorbing the soulful sounds of his father's record collection, including artists such as Ray Charles and Percy Sledge. Attending high school at the North Carolina School of the Arts, Trachy helped form the group Quantum, which received recognition in the Downbeat student music awards, and performed at festivals such as Arts Ignite Festival (Winston-Salem). At the Banff International Jazz Workshop, Quantum performed with guest artist Dave Douglas and recorded with Kenny Werner.
