Prizery readies for fall music headliners

SoVaNow.com / August 28, 2014
Tickets are now on sale for two Prizery events during the Fall 2014 season.

Musical talent Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem will perform favorite American Spiritual in concert on Saturday, Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m. They will also be at the Harvest Festival in Historic Downtown South Boston the afternoon of the concert. At the festival, Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem will be presenting two children workshops in instrument building from items you already have.

That evening, enjoy an American Spiritual concert. Rani Arbo & Daisy Mayhem lead concert audiences in a bona fide revival. There’s no tent, no potluck dinner — and no preaching, unless you count the band’s uproarious and wise stories. Instead, this charismatic quartet administers songs and tales that explore and revive the human spirit. From a lush setting of Tennyson’s “Crossing the Bar” to old American shape note hymns, prison work songs, blues, gospel and original compositions, American Spiritual, draws from 200 years of roots music to find songs that uplift and connect.

On Nov. 2 at 7:30 p.m., Flamenco Vivo, pure Flamenco dance and music, will turn up the heat at The Prizery. Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana, the nation’s premiere Spanish and Flamenco Dance Company, is celebrating its 30th Anniversary. The first company to reach this milestone, it is known for the purity of its work and the unique way in which it enriches the art of flamenco. Flamenco Vivo actively encourages the creativity and innovation of young artists from both Spain and the U.S. while remaining faithful to its’ powerful traditions.
