at the barre auditorium in barre (obviously) christian rock singer and vermont native mark shelton celebrates the release of his cd 'tribal nation' with a rock opera-like performance that promises "Sword fights, interpretive dance, special effects and more... as the Lord will be praised in song, drama, worship, and more." and more info here.
at radio bean the cleverly named 'white raag', a sitar tabla duo featuring tim sharbaugh, the drummer from deep soda performs at 9. but in radio bean time that means who the hell knows?
at dobra tea the alash ensemble, central asian Tuvan throat singers & musicians, perform at 8:30. according to there website, "Alash is carrying the proud traditions of Tuvan music into the future. They are among the first of a new generation of Tuvan musicians who have matured in the musically fertile and adventurous post-communist period in Tuva. Having been students not only of well-known musicians such as Kongar-ool Ondar, they are also recipients of the musical knowledge of their own families and regions"
