Come and Hear Some of the Latest Versions of Traditonal Folk Music of Eastern Europe with World Fusion Ensembles Dark, Dark, Dark and A Hawk And A Hacksaw: October 1st, Sunday @ 9:00 p.m.
American world folk sensations Dark, Dark, Dark and A Hawk and a Hacksaw will bring 2 new and different perspectives of Eastern European folk music to Boston’s Brighton Music Hall next month. Although I must warn you at this point that this is a standing room only event, I can also assure you that the experience should be well worth the lack of a seat as both bands are well-seasoned performers who have attained much success with adoring fans world-wide.
A Hawk And A Hacksaw (More Info/ Sound Clips) – This dynamic twosome consists of none other than accordionist Jeremy Barnes and violinist and vocalist Heather Trost. Sporting their own special blend of traditional genres from Yugoslavia, Greece, Turkey, Romania, and other regions of Eastern Europe, they produce a lively and uplifting repertoire, steeped in tradition yet embellished with a distinct contemporary flair. The pair maintain a highly unified artistic relationship as they perform, such is the style that always was and still is so very characteristic of this ancient musical art form. Although currently from Albuquerque, both Barnes and Trost took up a two-year residency in Hungary, honing their musicianship skills in the company of some of the nation’s top folk musicians. They have since produced their very own recording label centered solely around the promotion of Eastern European folk music. One of their latest most notable ventures has been their performance on a newly re-made soundtrack to the 1964 documentary film Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors.
Dak, Dark, Dark (More Info/Sound Clips) – This world fusion band beckons audiences to take a fresh new look at their everyday living environment in order to gain a different perspective on what might otherwise seem like a rather ordinary existence. With their own avant-garde interpretation of New Orleans style jazz blended with, Americana, pop, and Eastern European folk genres, they will introduce you to a new and exciting world around you full of whimsy and enchantment as they stimulate your perceptive senses. The fact that these artists play so well together as one superb musically cohesive unit, explains their uncanny ability to combine a wide array of styles and elements within each of their compositions, the end effect of which often times possesses a haunting quality quite capable of penetrating the listener’s very soul. Dark Dark Dark has toured heavily worldwide in addition to many other ambitious pursuits. Their smash hit Daydreaming has been included on the soundtracks of notable TV productions Greys Anatomy, American Idol, and Degrassi: the next generation.
