Datura Trio with Silk Road's Shane Shanahan


Date & Time: 
Mar 8 2013 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

On Friday, March 8, at 7:00 p.m., Friends of Music at Guilford (FOMAG) presents a concert of traditional and original music representing many cultures around the globe by Datura Trio with guest percussionist Shane Shanahan, a founding member of Yo Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble. Proceeds from the concert and a pre-concert supper, both set at the Vermont Jazz Center on Cotton Mill Hill, will benefit FOMAG's Music Enrichment Program at Guilford Central School, where the Datura Trio is in residence on March 6-8. Student participants in rhythm and vocal workshops may also make an appearance at the evening concert. Members of the Datura Trio, founded in 2008, include Brattleboro drummer-percussionist and educator Todd Roach and his colleagues from Maryland, exotic percussion master and university instructor N. Scott Robinson and his wife K. S. "Ray" Resmi, a specialist in the Carnatic vocal techniques of South India, featured on numerous recordings and movie soundtracks. Shanahan, sitting in with the trio for this performance, has cultivated his own unique and highly sought after sound by combining his study of drumming traditions with a background in jazz, rock, and Western art music. The Middle Eastern buffet from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. is $10 per plate with dessert and beverage; concert admission is $10 per adult, $5 for students 16 and under. For further information, contact Friends of Music at (802) 254-3600 or by email at office@fomag.org, or visit www.fomag.org.
