When: Sat., Aug. 30, 4-6 p.m. 2014
Kingston Festival of the Arts: Jobe/Redfearn Ensemble performs work by two award-winning composers: Steven L. Jobe and Alec K. Redfearn. Besides a giant hurdy gurdy, the effect of which Jobe describes as “a primal hypnotic wave”, Jobe/Redfearn features intriguing and colorful instrumentation -- accordion, violin, viola, cello and percussion. In addition, two guest vocalists, with backgrounds that include opera, folk, rock, early and art music, will round out the absorbing, eclectic, impossible-to- categorize sound. Selections range from a dreamy art-song melody by Jobe entitled "Chartres," to a characteristically accordion-infused extravaganza by Redfearn, "Amoebiasis".
