Spring Swings at Kenyon Hall

March 23, 2009
by

We’re swinging into spring with several varied entertainments, guaranteed to delight and amuse Seattleites young and old, and also your cousin visiting from Iowa.
The first is Friday, March 27, at 8 p.m., when Kenyon Hall rocks to the beat of Seattle’s newest Brazilian band, Sambatuque (samba-too-kie) www.myspace.com/sambatuqueseattle. Fronted by singer/dancer Makala Romero, a veteran of Seattle’s top Cuban and Brazilian bands, Sambatuque features pianist Alex Chadsey, bassist Tim Carey, percussionist Denny Stern, and drummer Jeff “Bongo” Busch. The group draws upon the rich and subtle beauty of Brazilian harmonies, and injects a wide range of powerful Afro-Brazilian and Afro-Cuban rhythms. The blend is an infectious range of dance styles that’ll keep you swinging all night long. A special feature will be a guest dance performance from members of the Tudo Beleza dance ensemble.
The second is Sunday, April 5, at 7 p.m., when we present The Shed Boys, Seattle’s premier bluegrass and folk music trio, featuring fiddler Ben Bauermeister, bassist Adam Rauch, and guitarist Glenn Greenwood. You can check them out on myspace by visiting http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewProfile&friendID=57870693. This concert by these singing musicians is a benefit for Kenyon Hall, provided by one of our generous patrons.
Tickets for each concert are only $10, with kids under 5 admitted free of charge.
No reservations necessary. Just come enjoy the family-friendly fun!
We appreciate your patronage. If you’d prefer that we not send you e-mails, please let us know. Thanks very much.

P.S. Lou and Peter Berryman return April 18th at 8, and Roy Zimmerman brings his brand new show, Roy Zimmerman: Real American, to the hall at 8 p.m. April 25th.
