July 10th, 2023 6pm Stage 1
Marissa Licata and The Ragtag Collection bring eclectic sounds from around the world! Featuring the versatility of the violin, this show melts styles and universally familiar melodies from classical, folk, Latin, and jazz, through the Americas, Middle East, and Eastern European music traditions.
Through diverse improvisations, each member’s voice and musical background is showcased, as well as original compositions. A key element of the sound lies in the incorporation of odd meter time signatures, creating unexpected beat patterns, harmonic rhythm, and a simmering, relentless heartbeat throughout. This show promises to deliver the fire, passion, and high energy grooves to a new kind of folkloric fusion.
