Tuesday 10.22.13 - Balkan Music Night with - Niva, Tipsy Oxcart and Sherita 7-11pm - White-trash BINGO with Tammy Wynette 8pm

Balkan Music Night 7-11pm
Niva (Field) is a 4-woman band that sings and plays Macedonian roots music -- alternately lyrical, mournful, ecstatic and spooky music with the complex meters and harmonies that used to be the heart of everyday life back in the day. Songs about unhappy betrothals, love gone wrong, bandits hiding in the hills, and cruel mothers-in-law, and dances that wrap you in a twisting circle -- Niva can make you hoot and holler one minute and cry your eyes out the next, even if you can't speak Macedonian. Niva is: Bridget Robbins - kaval; Corinna Snyder - tambura and vocals; Emily Geller - tapan and vocals; Kristina Vaskys - tambura and vocals. 
Every fourth Tuesday they get together at Branded Saloon to sing and play, and they invite their favorite Balkan inspired musicians to jin them.  In October they will be joined by Tipsy Oxcart http://tipsyoxcart.bandcamp.com/ and Sherita. http://gregsquared.com/sherita/

In November, they will be joined by the incredible Lauren Brody, accordianist and singer of lost Bulgarian songs, and the Rembetika stylings of Que Vlo Ve.
