Tuesday 11.26.13 - Balkan Music Night with - Niva, Lauren Brody, Que Vlo-Ve 7-11pm - White-trash BINGO with Tammy Wynette 8pm

Balkan Music Night 7-11pm
Niva is a 4 woman band that plays and sings Macedonian roots music. Alternately lyrical, mournful, ecstatic and spooky, this is the music that was the soundtrack of life once upon a time.  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.
Lauren Brody has blazed the path for countless musicians and singers as a teacher and as a singer/accordionist in both the Balkan and Klezmer music worlds. She was a founding member of Zenska Pesna, Novo Selo, Mikveh and Kapelye and was a singer/keyboard player with the Yuri Yunakov Ensemble and the Ivan Milev Balkan Folk Band. At Branded Saloon she will go it alone as she winds her way through Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia and Romania with just voice and accordion.
Que Vlo-Ve: Songs of heartbreak, addiction and sketchy career choices from the Rembetika songbook, the urban blues of 1920's Greece.
