A night of shredding banjos, blaring horns, and ferocious foot stomping comes to 92YTribeca as a mashup of raucous roots traditions hits our stage.
Every so often, just when you think the well is dry and the tradition is dead, you are gratefully reminded that there is still water down there and that the tradition was only sleeping. Morgan O’Kane from Charlottesville, Virginia is one of those reminders. A virtuoso banjo player, shouter and activist now based in New York City, Morgan recalls two other transplanted legendary southern artists; Reverend Gary Davis and Aunt Molly Jackson. Like the reverend, Morgan honed his skills making a living as a busking street artist. Like Aunt Molly, he has kept his connection to his Appalachian home and its issues, taking part in the campaign to ban mountaintop removal mining, which destroys the land and the people who live on it. While Morgan O’kane clearly knows his way around the old tunes, he is more interested in creating his own. That’s how the tradition survives – new songs being created on old foundations. This ain’t no revival; this is a contemporary artist who knows where he comes from.
Veveritse Brass Band
Through brass bells, the tendrils of their song creeps into a crowd, holding them in a pregnant stillness before the circle dance erupts into a parade... The most thrilling Balkan brass band this side of Vranjski Banja, Veveritse brings you the most dramatic soaring melodies and insistent dance beats of Serbian-style brass and drums.
