Saturday 9th Conor Prunty, David Chen and Chung Yufeng
Singer/Guitarist David Chen and harmonica player Conor Prunty, best known as members of Taiwan's favorite jug band band, the Muddy Basin Ramblers, play blues and roots music in the spirit of their musical heroes, which include late greats such as Robert Johnson, Bo Carter, Leadbelly, Sonny Terry, and Mississipi Fred McDowell. Expect to hear -- and do -- a lot of whooping and foot-stomping!
Chung Yufeng (鍾玉鳳)
Dave and Conor are honored to be joined by their good friend Chung Yufeng, a Chinese classical musician and multi-instrumentalist whose performances on the sanhsin (three-stringed snakeskin banjo), yueqin (moon-shaped lute), and the pipa (four-string Chinese lute), have garnered acclaim from audiences in Taiwan and abroad. A former lecturer in music at Fo Guang University, Chung now focuses on composing for the pipa, both for solo and collaborative performances. She has performed on numerous tours of Europe and lived in Cairo in 2011, as part of an artistic and cultural exchange with El Mastaba Center for Egyptian Folk Music. Ms Chung has performed with musicians from all walks of life and genres, including Okinwan legend Takashi Hirayasu, Palestinian lute player Sameer Makhoul and Taiwan's own Lin Shengxiang.
Ms Chung will perform a solo set on the pipa and also join Dave and Conor for a good old fashioned jam!
The concert will start at 20.30 , Ticket fee 250 Ntd with a beer or soda included.
