Feb 24 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
This performance is free and open to the public. Following their “Sweater Weather Tour” tour of Alaska, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Texas, and back to their home sweet home of Michigan, Alison Lynn and Diana Ladio are eager to share new music with the Alpena community.The Moxie Strings compose the majority of their pieces and arrange melodies from many traditions, resulting in a genre-blurring blend of ear-catching melodies and foot-stomping, rock-influenced rhythms. Alison Lynn performs on a newly-invented, electric cello, and Diana Ladio on a contemporary 5-string violin, both through a variety of audio effects pedals. Their polished, high-energy show and unique sound are redefining strings’ role in contemporary music, and have quickly made the band one of the country’s most promising instrumental acts. For clips of The Moxie Strings performances, visit their website: www.themoxiestrings.com.The Moxie Strings’ performance is made possible in part through a grant from the Michigan Humanities Council and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.For more information on this program, visit www.alpenalibrary.org or call 989-356-6188.
