Murder, Betrayal, and the Supernatural - The Art of the Balladeer and Kobzari pays tribute to the oral tradition of songs passed down since the Middle Ages - from Ukraine's blind epic singers and from the Scotts Irish ballad tradition. This concert brings together two remarkable artists- Colleen Cleveland, a fifth generation traditional ballad singer from New York's north country (and granddaughter of renowned ballad singer Sarah Cleveland), and Julian Kytasty, a third generation bandura player and singer-performing a repertoire rich in themes of love, religion, history, legends, tragedy, and humor, passed down through the centuries.
Venue Description: Located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, Symphony Space offers a wide range of performing arts events ranging for literary and comedic talks to live opera and classical performances. They offer many popular series, including the Thalia Book & Film Clubs, Just Kidding, Selected Shorts, Uptown Showdown, and more.
