Join your friendly neighborhood Strange Interlude as our harp and cello duo shares some folk songs and fellowship livestreamed from Los Angeles, CA right into your very own living rooms! (Or dining room, or porch swing, or swimming pool, or park bench - we don't judge as long as you're comfy and enjoying the music! ;)
This program includes works that explore a variety of folk traditions and exude the warmth and friendship that Groupmuse is known for. In addition to some delightful tunes, we'll be sharing some stories and conversation to bring you deeper inside the pieces we'll be sharing and as an extra special treat, we may even be enjoying a guest appearance by one of the composers on the program!
Happy Listening!
