Los Lorcas - Live from The Underground
The Live from the Underground (LFTU) performance series continues this Thursday with a performance by Los Lorcas. The 7pm performance on Thursday, May 6th will be livestreamed digitally on Facebook and followed by an interview with LFTU co-host Jamie Gage.
In the spirit of Federico Garcia Lorca—gifted musician, legendary poet/playwright and ebullient performer—poets Partridge Boswell and Peter Money, along with guitarist Nat Williams, fuse poetry and music in a passionate and surprising mash-up. Los Lorcas blurs boundaries between spoken word and song, weaving poetry with Andalusian ballads, blues, rock, folk, reggae, hip hop, Americana and jazz in pursuit of the cante jondo (deep song) Lorca so ardently championed.
Exploring common roots and synergies of poetry and music, Los Lorcas celebrate the poetry of song lyrics and music of lyrical poetry in soulful original compositions and arrangements of poems by Lorca, Yeats, Marley, Dylan, Dickinson, Cohen, Merwin and Millay, among others.
Thursday's performance will be a ticketed event with 50% of the proceeds going to the artist and 10% to Chandler Center for the Arts. Visit https://theundergroundvt.bandcamp.com/merch to purchase a ticket!
