November 7, 2008 Solo A Cappella, North Carolina

I'll be doing a set of solo a cappella during the collegiate a cappella competition at the SOJAM a cappella festival in Raleigh, NC. I'll also be presenting a number of workshops at the festival through the weekend.

I'm pretty excited about this one. It's my first international solo a cappella show, and I'll be working up a bunch of new repertroire. If singing a cappella is described as "singing without a safety net", solo a cappella is a little like walking the tightrope barefoot. [insert demented circus music here!]

October 28, 2008 Trichy Sankaran in Concert, Toronto, ON

"Trichy Sankaran, with members of Autorickshaw (Suba Sankaran, Ed Hanley) and guests Dylan Bell, Mohankumar and Desi Narayan, present solo, ensemble and original works based in the south Indian music tradition."

This one's something of a family affair. Dr Trichy Sankaran is a world-renowned master of south Indian percussion… he is also my former professor, and current father-in-law. I'll be playing bass and piano on this show.

If you haven't seen a Sankaran concert, you must come see this show. Sankaran has played with many of the greatest musicians of all styles around the world, and his shows are awe-inspiring for musicians and non-musicians alike.
