Shen's News: Happy New Year!!! I hope you've had a wonderful holiday season. Taro, myself and many others have just returned from a wet week at Woodford Folk Festival, surely one of the wettest Woodfords ever. It will take me a while to get back into gear and post photos etc, so for now I just want to announce this week's very special final concerts with Taro.
Before Taro heads back to Japan on the 9th, we have 2 final intimate concerts. The first will be an Indian classical flute home concert hosted by the Indian community in Pullenvale on Sunday. Then we have an exciting jugalbandi with touring sarod and tabla players Steve Oda and Ty Burhoe at the Sai Baba Temple in Virginia on Tuesday. Both concerts will offer the best atmosphere for enjoying this beautiful Indian classical music. Entry is by donation so there's no excuse not to come! :-)
