Concert to Feature 'Stirfry' of Musical Selections

Posted on Thursday, March 25, 2010 [9:24 AM]
COLUMBIA, Ky. -- The eclectic sounds of world music will be featured at a Friday night concert at Lindsey Wilson College.
Stirfry will perform at 7:30 p.m. CT on Friday, March 26, in the W.W. Slider Humanities Center Recital Hall. The concert -- which is part of the 2009-10 Lindsey Wilson College Cultural Affairs Series -- is free and open to the public.
Stirfry is a Gypsy jazz band of violin, accordion, guitar, mandolin, percussion and kazoo. Based in Frankfort, Ky., the band features Joanna Hay, Jeff Ellis, Ben Griffith and Bill May. The band's name comes from the fact that it plays a "stirfry" of Gypsy, Latin and jazz and Celtic -- with originals thrown in to spice things up.
"This group will surprise and delight its audience with its varied repertoire," said LWC Library Director Phil Hanna, who is also chair of the LWC Cultural Affairs Series. "The band's performances are filled with joy and laughter. A typical performance might start with a Celtic air and a jig, followed by an Eastern European czardas, a jazz cover, some Latin grooves and Stirfry originals."
For more information about Friday night's concert, contact Hanna at hannap@lindsey.edu or (270) 384-8250. For more information about Stirfry, go to: www.artistdirectory.ky.gov/performingarts/Stirfry.htm.
