Music on the Porch: Gabe & Will, Roots Music from Two Continents

September 28 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Will Ridenour has studied the West African harp-lute kora since 1999, touring 28 countries with punk outfit Zegota and dance band Diali Cissokho & Kaira Ba. Gabriel Pelli brings an indie rock and jazz background from his work with The Old Ceremony and Squirrel Nut Zippers.

Together, Gabe & Will produce a fresh blend of American and West African folk music. Fiddle and guitar join the 21-stringed kora as roots music from two continents collide! You can enjoy a sample of their sound on YouTube. This show is free and open to the public. Free parking is available after 5:00 pm in the Park Place parking lot. Bring a picnic blanket and stay for a while!
