Alla Boara – Ancient Italian Folk Music for Modern Souls

April 14 @ 7:30 pm

$19 – $50


Ancient Italian Folk Music for Modern Souls

Friday, April 14th, 2023 @ 7:30 PM

“…like a journey that takes you in and makes you forget where you are.”
— The Jambar, June 2020

“Historical preservation and top-notch musicianship”
— Cleveland Magazine, January 2021

Featuring the dynamic vocals of Amanda Powell (Apollo’s Fire) and eclectic compositions from percussionist Anthony Taddeo (Helen Welch / Hey Mavis) these modern arrangements of Italian folk songs are variously surprising, playful, mournful, tender, and bewitching. Woven seamlessly throughout the performance are stories and insights into this rich folk tradition.

Alla Boara’s dynamic work aims to inspire audiences of all ethnic heritages to treasure their musical roots and consider historical songs’ contemporary cultural relevance. Alla Boara has received critical acclaim for its originality and accessibility and was recently featured in La Gazzetta Italiana, and predicted to have a bright future by Cleveland Magazine. They recently were featured at the 43rd annual Tri-C Jazz Festival and for this show at Kerrytown they will be promoting the release of their first album “Le Tre Sorelle.”

This performance is generously sponsored by the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago.

We invite you to support THE local spot for Italian fare! Stop in for dinner and a glass of wine before the show with our community partner, Paesano Restaurant & Wine Bar.
