After-Hours Concert: Jutta & the Hi-Dukes™
Sponsored by Friends of Lansing Library.
Discover Worlds of Traditional Ethnic Music with Jutta & the Hi-Dukes™
You'll explore a world of music as these eclectic, energetic, multi-instrumentalist troubadours transport you on an exciting worldbeat dance tour of Balkan, Gypsy, Dixie, Klezmer, Scandinavian, French, and Greek music.
These talented world music musicians will get you dancing the fun line and circle traditional dances that fit the music, so bring your dancing shoes! For those who prefer dancing with their fingers, the band will have hand percussion on which you can join in the music-making. Of course, everyone can sing along, too!
You will delight to an ever-changing spectrum of musical colors created by three-part vocal harmonies accompanied by the quintet's many instruments which include: the Bulgarian kaval, mandolin, tenor saxophone, up to three acoustic guitars, tupan and darabuka (percussion from the Balkans), and acoustic bass.
Friends of Lansing Libary will sell slices of cheesecake to-go after the concert as a fundraiser. $3, cash only.
