As part of the Music @ Main concert series, The Friends of the West Bloomfield Twp Public Library will host the Red Sea Pedestrians for two shows on Sunday, February 24, 2013. The first performance will begin at 3:00 pm with doors opening at 2:30pm. The second show will begin at 5:00 pm with doors opening at 4:30 pm. All shows will be held in the Meeting Room of the West Bloomfield Public Library, 4600 Walnut Lake Road in West Bloomfield. The concerts are free.
The band is a melting pot of 6 singer/songwriter multi instrumentalists who combine a blend of Klezmer, Greek, Gypsy, Celtic, Jazz and American Roots. We're talking high energy, world beat grooves and hypnotic laments. Multi- layered lyrics, rich harmonies, and masterful playing complete the story. The Red Sea Pedestrians won the WYCE Jammie Awards in 2010 for the best traditional album. Be prepared to dance in your seats as one concert reviewer was quoted saying "People danced like drunken gypsies as soon as the band took the stage"
