Folk Song Debut Show!
September 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Very excited to announce Folk Song’s debut show at Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs! We have the Saratoga Arts Council and Caffe Lena to thank for the funding and presentation of this new project that has been in the works for the past year. Please come out and see what we are all about!
Folk Song is a quintet made up of sitar, tabla, fiddle, bodhran, and our own multi instrumentalist who plays banjo, gourd banjo, guitar, and vocals. Inspired by the overlap of Hindustani and Irish traditional music, this ensemble has been a collection hat for an organic process of creation. Drawing from traditional form, experimental composition, poetry, Americana, and our deep passion to create new music, this ensemble has developed into a life of its own. Like all “folk” music we are engaged in the sharing of ideas and experiences through the truly egalitarian medium that is artistic expression.
