Nadia Washington and Nick Hakim will share the stage to headline the Marblehead Festival of Arts. Mandolinist Bryce Milano will open the concert.
Bryce Milano: 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
Philadelphia native Bryce Milano first discovered his love for music and the unlikely instrument of the mandolin at age 9. Though originally taking root in bluegrass and American folk music, he quickly ventured into music forms from around the world, studying everything from Bach to straight ahead jazz to Bulgarian folk music. In 2010, after spending nine years performing around the country, Milano began studying at Berklee College of Music on scholarship. In December of that year, he was invited to the Lincoln Center in New York City to accept ASCAP’s Lieber and Stoller Scholarship for his studies in performance. Now, two years later, Milano portrays the myriad of musical influences from his youth through his own compositions. By weaving in and out of contemporary and traditional styles, and utilizing unique instrumentation, he hopes his music will obscure the distinctions between musical genres across the globe.
