Tarantella! Rhythms of the Old Mediterranean

About the Concert

Amanda Powell, soprano & co-director
Brian Kay, oud, lute & co-director
Jeannette Sorrell, lautenwerck & co-director

Last summer’s “Mediterranean Roots” program raised the rafters, and now it returns in a fresh, new version. Soulful singers Amanda Powell and Brian Kay celebrate the common ties of Spanish, Italian, Greek, and Arabic cultures, along with a colorful ensemble of plucked instruments, recorder, strings, hammered dulcimer, and exotic percussion. The Lautenwerck – a beautiful lute-like keyboard instrument – makes its debut on the AF stage at the hands of Jeannette Sorrell.
