The Marimba Nacional de Concierto Guatemala is a musical nonprofit organization created to study, investigate, develop, and promote everything that involves the Guatemalan marimba and its musical legacy, with the purpose to dignify both the instrument as a handcrafted instrument and the marimba players. The concept was created by Maestro Lester H. Godínez to bring the music around the world. The repertoire includes music of Mayan roots, popular music, academic, symphonic, and contemporary works. This concert is their first appearance in Boston and is a commemoration of the introduction to the U.S. of the chromatic marimba by the Hurtado Brothers’ Marimba Royal from Guatemala one hundred years ago.

Oakhurst/Annie Lynch and the Beekeepers/The Low Anthem

Friday / July 11, 2008 / 8:00 p.m.
Cafe 939
939 Boylston Street
Boston
MA
United States
02115

For years, Oakhurst has been torching up the stage, as well as creating a stir on major festivals, cruise ships and European tours with its unique sound and unbridled stage energy. The band’s adept picking, sweet harmonies, and unpretentious, go-for-it interpretation of a genre that’s often handled too reverently, sparks interest in bluegrass by folks who don’t know Doc Watson from Doc Holliday.

Oakhurst has shared stages with very diverse national talent such as John Hiatt, Nickel Creek, the Flaming Lips, Emmylou Harris, Barenaked Ladies, Yard Dogs Roadshow, Béla Fleck, the Ditty Bops, the Radiators, Junior Brown, Lyle Lovett, Lynard Skynard, Johnny Lang, and Guster.

Annie Lynch and the Beekeepers are a Boston-based, acoustic alternative folk group comprised of artists from a variety of musical backgrounds. While the songs performed by the quartet originated as Annie’s folk tunes, the music has evolved and expanded with rich arrangements for upright bass, cello, mandolin, banjo, accordion, and the occasional saw solo. Annie Lynch and the Beekeepers perform strong, passionate and, most importantly, honest music with poetic lyrical content and unique layered harmonies.

The Low Anthem is a contemporary folk duet from Providence, Rhode Island. Members Ben Miller and Jeff Prystowsky met playing in the wood-bat leagues of rural Connecticut in 2003. Their landmark 2007 release What the Crow Brings was independently produced by the band and has received great acclaim from major press across the country. Their rapidly expanding fan base spans all ages remarkably, as the duo appeals to hipsters, housewives, and grandparents equally. Writers have typically drawn comparisons to Tom Waits, Neil Young, and Bob Dylan, but you will hear strains in their music from remote Appalachia to the Delta; an urban immediacy; and a timeless grounding in the great American roots music traditions.
