Every evening, Harris’ San Francisco Steakhouse compliments fine dining with beautiful music. On Sunday and Monday, diners at the San Francisco restaurant enjoy the accompaniment of Ken Muir. The acclaimed piano soloist and bandleader is a graduate of Harvard College, and brings 25 years of experience playing music in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, and Europe to his performances at Harris’.
Ken Muir has privileged many notable venues with his virtuoso, including New York City’s Carnegie Hall and San Francisco’s Davies Symphony Hall. The professional pianist, who specializes in jazz, has performed at Yoshi’s and played the San Francisco Jazz Festival, the North Beach Jazz Festival and the Big Sur Jazz Festival.
Muir’s talents are internationally recognized and while he has performed in San Francisco hotels like the Mark Hopkins, the Fairmont and the Claremont Resort Hotel in Berkeley, he has also traveled as far as Switzerland, Germany and Norway to play for an audience. Muir is a respected pianist whose prowess is well known in the musical community. In 2002, Muir wrote the musical arrangements for Paula West’s CD Come What May, which won the California Music Awards’ Outstanding Jazz Album of the Year.
“Ken is a very talented songwriter and arranger and an exceptional jazz pianist,” said jazz piano legend Dave McKenna.
The San Francisco piano teacher now offers lessons for players of all ages and experience levels in his sunny Russian Hill studio or in students’ homes. Muir’s lessons help students build a repertoire of songs they love and learn to play more naturally and expressively. Students enjoy the opportunity to study with a talented musician who genuinely loves to teach.
Harris’ hosts live music seven nights a week. Ken Muir performs Sundays and Mondays, George Khouri plays piano and standing bass or sax Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and the Susan Chen Trio performs Thursdays and Fridays.
