Join us at the Arts + Literature Laboratory on Saturday, November 23 at 8:00pm for an evening of "class-grass" with Graminy, featuring Mike Bell (mandolin & banjo), Mary Gaines (cello), Jen Clare Paulson (viola & violin), Chris Powers (guitar), and Chris Wagoner (violin). Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Student tickets $5 off with a valid school ID. Advance ticket sales end 1 hour before the show. Doors open at 7:30pm.
Graminy fuses classical and grassroots music into a toe-tapping yet sophisticated style of Americana they call class-grass. They blend a classical string trio (violin, viola, and cello) with the drive of bluegrass (mandolin, guitar, and banjo) into lively performances of alloriginal, mainly instrumental music.
Graminys compositions reflect themes of ecology and place. Their name derives from the botanical term for the grass family, Gramineae. Graminy creates music with a deep, lyrical qualityhaving the ability to inspire both the mind and the feet to dance. As another reviewer described, its pure enjoyment just to sit back and listen to the beautiful sounds they create.
