Childsplay Farewell Concert
November 17, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Childsplay Performs Farewell Concert at Latchis Nov. 17
Childsplay ends its 33 years of touring with a series of spectacular farewell concerts including a return to Brattleboro’s Latchis Theatre Sunday, Nov 17, at 7:30 p.m.
Childsplay’s over two dozen musicians come from all over the United States and Sweden and include some of the leading virtuosos in traditional and contemporary fiddle music. For over 30 years, Childsplay has performed in the United States and Europe, showcasing different styles of fiddle music.
When playing together, Childsplay creates sounds that are vibrant, powerful, and eclectic . . . playful, innovative and driving, taking fiddle music beyond mesmerizing repetition into the realm of harmonies and counter rhythms- traditional fiddle sounds in the contemporary world.
The Brattleboro concert will feature vocalist Karan Casey, who has long been one of the most innovative, provocative and imitated voices in Irish traditional and folk music. Her career has spanned twenty five years from the early days as a jazz performer in George’s Bistro in Dublin to her heady days in New York with the band Solas to her now established solo career and she has sold over half a million albums.
