World Wide Wednesdays@Chelmsford presents:
Branches Steel Band
The drums or 'pans' range from tenor, double tenor, alto, quadraphonics, guitar and bass to the traditional drum set and congas. The quality of sound achieved is extraordinary -boldly percussive yet rich and subtle.
Branches' repertoire includes traditional Calypso island music, show tunes, classics and popular contemporary music, all played in rollicking Calypso style. Branches aims to convey the spirit and joy inherent in the Caribbean culture while simultaneously presenting the steel drum as an authentic and sophisticated instrument capable of a wide spectrum of repertoire.
Branches Steel Band has played at many high visibility
events such as Sail Boston, DeCordova Museum Arts Festival, Children's
Hospital, Boston Arts Festival, Cambridge River Festival and First Nights
in Boston and in many other New England cities.
This concert is free and open to the public.
