Opening: Catherine Crowe Irish traditional singer. Catherine’s early influences were revivalist singers, and her first experience was singing in a band, but she has been increasingly drawn to the more traditional unaccompanied styles. Catherine has made a special study of “sean nos” (old style) Irish songs, especially those in the English language which she likes to present with some historical and cultural context.
Main concert: Kamancello, comprised of Shahriyar Jamshidi, Kamanche (Spike-Fiddle) and Raphael Weinroth-Browne, Cello blurs musical genre conventions with their highly evocative improvised performances. The scope of their creations ranges from soulful and emotive to incendiary and intense, and their sound has been described as being “totally entrancing.” Having made waves with at Montreal’s Place des Arts for Festival du Monde Arabe and Toronto’s Tirgan Festival and Small World Music Centre, Kamancello is poised to release their groundbreaking debut full-length album at Burdock on Sunday, October 15th.
Kamancello will be performing a full improvisation pieces, influenced by Kurdish, Mesopotamian and Western.
