We enter the period of summer concerts. As we know, some programs are assembled with some gaps. Those other are balanced and, above all, designed in a framework of balance between the performance of popular music and the deepening, the study. These include those for the Quarrata Folk Festival, held in the Tuscan town on 26 and 27 June 2015. The artistic director is Riccardo Tesi and, in the best tradition, the program includes many concerts and moments of entertainment, but also opportunities to meet important artists of the landscape of international popular music. We start from the headliner, as they say for rock events. The landscape is vast and encompasses very different expressions. Friday 26 opens the program Fanfare Tirana, Albanian brass band among the most famous in the world. The concert will be introduced by the performance of Redi Hasa (cello) and Maria Mazzotta (voice), the Salento-based duo who recently released the excellent work “Ura”. Saturday 27 will be the turn of Hevia, the famous bagpiper power of Aturie. The concert will be opened by Duo Bottaso (violin and accordion), we recently talked in this column about the release of their first album “Crescendo”. Saturday afternoon will be held several events, among which the presentation of the book “The guitar jazz manouche” and the album “Swing south”, curated by Maurizio Geri.
Here the program in detail and all event information.
