Yep, you’re seeing that right… accordion and trumpet at the same time! Come see for yourself on March 16th at 7pm when Round Mountain will be sharing their blending of dusty American grit with a worldly amalgam of global influences at Shumei International Institute. The multi-multi-instrumentalist band of brothers has travelled the globe absorbing bits and pieces of musical cultures, returning to filter them through their own sepia-toned Americana framework.
Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a truly fun and beautiful performance at the Shumei International Institute, 7:00 pm Friday, March 16th. Suggested donation is $10. For more information contact Shumei at 719-256-5284 or visit www.shumeicrestone.org.
March’s Free Movie Night is March 23rd at 7pm. And March brings us “The Buena Vista Social Club.” In this fascinating Oscar-nominated documentary, American guitarist Ry Cooder brings together a group of legendary Cuban folk musicians (some in their 90s) to record a Grammy-winning CD in their native city of Havana. The result is a spectacular compilation of concert footage from the group’s gigs in Amsterdam and New York City’s famed Carnegie Hall, with director Wim Wenders capturing not only the music — but also the musicians’ life stories. Refreshments provided, 256-5284 for more information.
