A night of Innovative, Virtuosic, World, Roots, Chamber music!
RVSQ: String quartet, string band, womans vocal quartet, jaw-dropping improvising world-music collective .pick a box and Real Vocal String Quartet will think outside it, with style. RVSQ plays original songs and unique arrangements that pay tribute to music from Appalachia to Kenya to Brazil, with sparkling improvisation that impresses and moves. RVSQ recently recorded and toured with Feist and played last year's Redwood Grove series with Mirah.
NICE GUY TRIO: Steeped in jazz, the Nice Guy trio embraces a wide array of styles, drawing from klezmer, blues, funk, calypso, country, Balkan, and Hindustani music. Founded in early 2008 by trumpeter Darren Johnston, the group features accordion ace Rob Reich and bassist Daniel Fabricant playfully exploring a heady mix of original compositions and modern classics by the likes of Charles Mingus and Ornette Coleman.
UCBG is excited to welcome these two extremely talented bands back to the Redwood Grove!
