Skaneateles Festival: Week three

Rhythm (rĭth’ ∂m) n. 1. A regular pattern formed by a series of notes of differing duration and stress. 2. A group of instruments in a band supplying the rhythm

SkanFest kicks it up a notch with a week exploring rhythm. Called an "experimental powerhouse" by the Village Voice and "astonishing and entrancing" by Billboard Magazine, the Sō Percussion quartet brings their edgy yet ancient breed of music to Skaneateles for the first time.

Also joining us that week: elegant percussionist and marimbist Ayano Kataoka returns to the Festival, fresh from performances at Lincoln Center and in Tokyo. And, we are thrilled to welcome legendary jazz pianist Marcus Roberts and his Trio to Skaneateles for the first time.
