Tenores de Aterúe (Special Event)

  • 27 Jan 2018
  • 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • Home of Molly Hickman, Takoma Park, MD
Tenores de AterĂșe returns to Washington with more Sardinian songs in the cantu a tenore tradition. As the New England quartet's website explains: "The song form is typical of the region of Barbagia and other parts of central Sardinia. Performances are often spontaneous and done in local bars, but also at more formal occasions, such as religious festivals. The lyrics are sometimes ancient, but may also be contemporary poems on present-day issues such as emigration and politics, and they are connected to the island's rich poetic tradition. ? Doug Paisley, the boghe (lead singer), is joined by Avery Book, who performed for FSGW last year with Starry Mountain Singers, and Gideon Crevoshay and Carl Linich. At Molly Hickman's in Takoma Park. $15 donation suggested. RSVP & directions: e-mail Molly Hickman. Info about group: tenoresdeaterue.bandcamp.com/.
