Ever wonder how much of the music you listen to is influenced by ancient Celtic traditions? Kittel & Co’s music is part of a rich tapestry of contemporary string music made today in the American, Scottish, Irish, and Scandinavian music scenes. Join us pre-performance at Port City Music Hall for an exploration of how those traditional sounds lend themselves to modern rhythms with guest speaker Neil Pearlman. Pearlman is a multi-instrumentalist, step dancer and host of podcast TradCafe. Rooted in traditional Cape Breton piano styles, he adds jazz harmony and the syncopations of funk, Cuban, and Brazilian dance music to create a unique and infectious sound.
The pre-performance lecture takes place at Port City Music Hall.
