Susquehanna University Artist Series presents Apollo's Fire

Live Music

January 28, 2020

Degenstein Center Theater

 

Apollo’s Fire has developed a unique ensemble of crossover artists specializing in early traditional folk repertoire. Performing in a historically informed aesthetic with the lively freedom of folk performers, the artists revive the crossover spirit of the 17th century – when composers wrote artful variations on street tunes and tavern songs. Sugarloaf Mountain: An Appalachian Gathering explores the communal journey of immigrants from the British Isles who left their homes with sadness, but also with hope. They faced a dangerous, unknown life in the wilderness of the New World or the seemingly certain poverty and hopelessness of remaining at home. Stories, sorrows and shared laughter of these immigrants are told in the ballads of the program.

Tickets are $20 for Adults, $15 for Seniors, $5 for Students and can be purchased by calling 570-372-ARTS(2787), Monday through Friday, 12pm-5pm, or visiting the Degenstein Center box office. Discounts are available for groups of 15 or more.
