Mar 6: House Concert, 10 String Symphony

10stringsmall10 String Symphony (Nashville)

March 6th 2015, 7pm  $15

Co-sponsored by McPharlin Music.  Limited Seating! RSVP to the Gallery at 724.452.0539

Nashville’s 10 String Symphony is an experiment in acoustic innovation. “…Their music is a blend of two distinct but equally vivacious musical voices, encompassing “aggressive, almost discordant, celtic and dare I say punky string-chording experimentations” (The Bluegrass Situation).  Vocally, Rachel Baiman and Christian Sedelmyer lock in seamlessly, and their vocal duets often take center stage despite the fact that they are self-described fiddle players. Their desire to see just how far a two-fiddle, two-vocals instrumentation could take them was the inspiration for the 10 String Symphony project.

Only two years old as a band, the duo has already gained recognition and attention from some major festivals, landing slots at the ROMP festival in Owensboro, KY, the Strawberry Music Festival in Yosemite, CA, and a headlining slot at the 2014 Auckland Folk Festival in New Zealand.
