What can I say? You win some. . .

Join us tonight for more foot-stomping Italian shepherds’ songs, tarantelle, and a little musette explosion.

Traditional Italian Music

Yep, folklore, or to be a trifle unkind, people with funny hats, anachronistic costumes and even more out-of-date musical instruments.

Tonight from the Piedmont to Sardegna, we’ll explore Italian traditional song and dance. There are the work songs of the olive oil pressers, silk mill workers, rice pickers in the Po delta, and even some sailor songs from Sicily. And the dances! Wedding songs, tarantellas, salterellos, jigs, even a rumba.

Sailors

A tough bunch, but prone to degeneracy, profligacy—and topless accordion!

Tonight we give them their due as they engage in traditional songs about rowing, pulling, heaving and hauling—and other types of manly, rhythmic activity.

From Greenland to the South Pacific,  from Haul on the Bowline to Moby Dick, we’ll examine the maritime life in song, literature and dance.

Join us as we attempt the trickiest of all sailorly endeavors—tying a bowline in the devil’s tail.
