Subject: Anchor East House Concert: ORKESTRA KEYIF: Old-Style Turkish Urban Folk Music, Sunday, March 21 '04 - 4:30 pm

Greetings Friends:

We do house concerts here at Anchor East only once in a great while, when a great opportunity comes along, like this one. My friend Beth Cohen is a local violinist/fiddler who has been a musical inspiration to many of us over the years. This is a chance to hear her with a great ensemble:

Oyun Havalari! Taksimler! Ciftetelliler! Turkuler!

Special Event: An intimate house concert by Orkestra Keyif - A late afternoon house concert of acoustic, old-style Turkish urban folk music.

Orkestra Keyif is composed of seasoned players of a wide range of Middle Eastern and Balkan repertoires. Come join us for a concert of old-style Turkish urban folk music performed by Beth Cohen (violin and yayli tanbur), Brenna MacCrimmon (vocals), Paul Brown (bass), Polly Tapia (percussion) and Haig Manoukian (oud).

TIME: Sunday, March 21, 2004 - 4:30 pm
Suggested sliding scale contribution $10-15
Watertown, MA location (directions provided with your reservation confirmation).
For reservations, information and directions, call: 617-926-2364 x3
or reply to this email
(If you need directions, email is preferable to a phone call)
(Note: this concert is NOT posted at my website)

Space is very limited! We expect many enthusiasts from the Balkan and Middle Eastern music and dance community to be interested, but I wanted to make sure the Anchor East house concert folks also had a chance to hear this extraordinary music from one of the world's deepest traditions.
