Part of the Arts Midwest World Fest 2015-17 cycle, Baladino plays centuries-old melodies and sounds carried to Israel from Spain, Eastern Europe, Turkey, and Arabic countries, blending these far-ranging musical influences with authenticity and conviction.
During the week leading up to their final performance at the Croswell, Baladino will give several free workshops around Lenawee County. Some are for school groups only, but some are open to the general public. The public workshops are:
- Thursday, April 14, at 11 a.m. in the Adrian High School Julianne and George Argyros Performing Arts Center (part of the AHS Jazz and World Music Festival)
- Thursday, April 14, at 5 p.m. at Rumors, 212 W. Main St., Hudson (The Capps, a folk duo from Chelsea, will perform at 5 p.m., followed by Baladino).
- Friday, April 15, at 4:30 p.m. in St. Catherine’s Chapel on the campus of the Adrian Dominican Sisters, 1257 E. Siena Heights Drive, Adrian.
The final concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 16, at the Croswell, 129 E. Maumee St., Adrian.
