Balkan Bash at Earth Sky Time
September 22, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
Sunday 9/22 5:00 PM BALKAN BASH with COCEK! BRASS BAND and MAX”S NEW HAT at Earth Sky Time Farm
Join Earth Sky Time Community Farm for an evening of Balkan party music, wood-fired pizza and fun on the farm!
The music of Cocek! Brass Band is influenced by Eastern-European and New Orleans dance songs, Afrobeat, Klezmer and elements of reggae and Western classical pieces.
Their contemplative old world melodies hark to a lost era and their catchy riffs will get you dancing and singing along. In performance spaces ranging from hollowed out warehouses and arts spaces in Boston to the Kennedy Center in D.C., The Burlington Discover Jazz Festival, WorldFest in Louisville, KY and the 11th Annual NY Gypsy Music Festival, Cocek! can be found sprinkling their Phrygian magic dust on audience members all over the world. Max’s New Hat is an electro-Balkan outfit that plays the dance party and wedding music of Serbia, Macedonia, Greece and Bulgaria.
As always, Earth Sky Time will be making pizzas with their homegrown toppings on the famous double decker bread bus. The cash bar will feature local craft beer, kombucha and Ginger Libation. Tickets are $15 ($10 for students/farmers) kids are free. Earth Sky Time Farm is located at 1547 Main St. in Manchester. In the event of rain the concert and fun happens inside the barn.
