(This is a past event and is no longer running)
Following Bells and Spells.
Grammy Award-winner Mike Block, cello and vocals, presents a mixture of contemporary-classical cello pieces, arrangements of folk music, and original songs that draw inspiration from his diverse collaborations with artists including cellist Yo-Yo Ma, Indian tabla player Sandeep Das, Malian balafon player Balla Kouyate, as well as will.i.am, Stevie Wonder and Bon Iver.
Mike Block is a pioneering multi-style cellist, singer, composer, and educator, hailed by Yo-Yo Ma as the “ideal musician of the 21st-Century” and praised by the NY Times for his “vital rich-hued solo playing.”
