Apollo's Fire presents Mediterranean Roots
The waters of the Mediterranean carried ancient traders from Spain and Italy to Greece, North Africa, and the Middle East. Their songs, dances, love stories and laments went with them. Guest co-directors Amanda Powell and Brian Kay lead a colorful ensemble of exotic winds and percussion, fiddle, and hammered dulcimer in this program celebrating shared multicultural traditions.
We welcomed Amanda and Brian to the WCLV studios to chat with Bill O'Connell about the program.
