Alla Boara is on a fast track to becoming one of Northeast Ohio’s greatest cultural exports. This ensemble seeks to bring recognition and new life to Italy's diverse history of regional folk music. The group just released a new record, and we invite you to Gartner Auditorium to celebrate this momentous occasion.
Combining historical preservation with top-notch musicianship, Alla Boara’s modern arrangements of near-extinct folk songs are variously surprising, playful, mournful, tender, and bewitching. The group’s dynamic work aims to inspire audiences of all ethnic heritages to treasure their musical roots and consider historical songs’ contemporary cultural relevance.
According to The Jambar, this immersive show combining music, storytelling, and video takes listeners on a journey that makes them forget where they are.
The vision of drummer and composer Anthony Taddeo, Alla Boara features vocalist Amanda Powell (Apollo’s Fire), guitarist Dan Bruce, trumpeter Tommy Lehman, bassist Ian Kinnaman, and accordionist and keyboardist Clay Colley. Tonight’s performance also features special guests Patrick Graney on percussion and Caitlin Hedge on violin.
