Hear Hu Dost in Concert on January 4
Jan 02, 2014 04:27PM
Neo-folk world rock, country and eastern fusion is the cross-genre description for Hu Dost, the all original duo from Montreal and New York that will be returning to Sarasota in January. Hu Dost’s performances are eclectic and commanding, and they will be performing in Sarasota at Rising Tide International on January 4th for their 2014 “Baby on Board Tour.” The concert will be an intimate evening of “sufi kirtan”, with many originals, both old and new, along with songs from their new 2013 CD release “4th Way Folk.”
Hu Dost will be joined by local vocalist Stephanie Heidemann and other special guests. Their new CD is a stripped down, organic, acoustic affair with fi ve of the tracks actually “4th Way Folk Songs”-- traditional folk pieces transformed and gleaned from the ideas of people like Gurdjieff and E.J. Gold. The music of Hu Dost weaves a seamless tapestry of sound that renders tears and laughter in listeners, cultivating that nameless longing that abides somewhere in all of our hearts.
This is a must-see and tickets will sell out quickly for this intimate venue. Show starts at 8pm, doors open at 7:30pm.
Tickets may be purchased in advance on-line from the Rising Tide website at RisingTideInternational.org/upcoming-events/.
