RAISIN’ CANE

WITH JASMINE GUY

AND THE AVERY SHARPE TRIO

 

Saturday, February 23, 2013 at 8:00 pm

Main Stage - $34

 

Raisin’ Cane, called a ‘Harlem Renaissance Odyssey,’ stars the talented and versatile Jasmine Guy, actress (A Different World), singer and dancer. This dramatic production depicts Harlem in the 1920’s: a pent up explosion of brilliant prose, poetry, politics and music of African-Americans who were ready to have their say.

 

Backed by a superb original score performed by the Avery Sharpe Trio, Raisin’ Cane features striking photos and paintings of the artists and inhabitants of Harlem during this period, and is a unique theatrical experience unlike any other.

 

It was an exceptional time.
It was our time.

REGINA CARTER:
REVERSE THREAD

In Reverse Thread, world-renowned jazz violinist Regina Carter plays African folk melodies re-imagined, making music that’s jazzy and beautiful. By adding an accordion and kora, the West African harp traditionally played by village storytellers, Ms. Carter has found the perfect complement to her sumptuous sound. Some of the music from her album Reverse Thread is based on field recordings of singing by Ugandan Jews, other pieces layer the rhythms of African music with harmonies from India and Puerto Rico.

 

Whatever the source of inspiration, each work is better than the one before, resulting in a new and uplifting experience like no other.
