Tales of the Boatman: Music from the Endless River
Sat, January 9, 2021 7:00 PM, EST
Chris Rippey, composer and creator of the storytelling and music series Tales of the Boatman, will perform four new compositions.
Joining him will be renowned Kuchipudi dancer Yamini Kalluri. Her dance will bring the art of storytelling through movement to life, as she embodies the characters and energies depicted in the music.
The music will explore the unique voices of folk instruments. Banjo, both plucked and bowed, bamboo flute, nyckelharpa, frame drums and fretted cello will come together to create a sound which blends the haunting melodies and driving rhythms of modal traditions with the rich harmonies of classical and baroque music.
