What is a â€œStrings into Storiesâ€ Concert?
Two versatile musicians explore the universal themes found in traditions worldwide.
Like one-man theatre from the days of Chautauqua, Andrew crafts his stories into a musical soundscape that traverses such varied influences as Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, rustic folk, Native American flute and African drum, and even a little fancy flatpicking on a Carter Family tune. Michaelâ€™s delivery of his compositions and arrangements of traditional tunes gathered worldwide weaves a narrative of his travels and travails found in his varied musical habitats, from a capella kan e diskan in Breton Gaelic to evocations of Japanese koto music. On stage together, Andrew and Michaelâ€™s stellar guitar work, well-crafted songs, and anecdotes both humorous and poignant weave a magical experience that pays homage to the history, tradition and power that informs their music.
