Mari Black Trio ‘Fiddling Around the World’
Saturday, September 16 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$25
Fiddler Mari Black, a multi-style violinist, plays with sparkling virtuosity that has won major fiddle competitions in the United States, Scotland and Canada. Her talent, enthusiasm and playful storytelling carry toe-tapping audiences on an international musical adventure. Check out a medley of three tunes here, including two that she wrote herself. She and her accompanists sweep audiences away on a spirited musical adventure featuring dance music from around the globe: Celtic, American, and Canadian fiddling, jazz, tango, klezmer, folk, original works, and more.
The concert will be on Saturday, Sept. 16, at 8 p.m in the Beckman Institute Auditorium, where all 200 seats are close to the performers. It is at 400 South Wilson Avenue, in the Beckman Institute building directly west of the much-larger, round Beckman Auditorium.
