Gypsy folk dance music returns to Belfast

Posted Oct. 17, 2011, at 4:15 p.m.

BELFAST, Maine — Åarhus Gallery will welcome back the Balkan-Gypsy folk dance music and the multidimensional Yiddish celebration anthems of Cinder Conk at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, at the gallery, 50 Main St.

The duo has shared the stage with such entities as Beat Circus, The Toughcats and Slavic Soul Party, and wowed a packed house at Åarhus Gallery during the First Annual Free Range Music Festival.

Though inspired by the rousing traditions of Gypsy/Roma cultures and Eastern European folk music, Cinder Conk is wholeheartedly midcoastian. Matthew Schreiber is a nimble fingered accordion activist and his own compositions are stunning and affecting achievements in his commitment to promoting spiritual development through free-reed music. Xar Adelberg is an orthodox bullfiddle pilot committed to a musical revolution.

Suggested donation $10. Light refreshments will be served.
