An Evening with TAARKA
March 4 @ 7:00 pm$18.00
Join us for a concert from the accomplished alt Americana band TAARKA! Much like the sizzle of spices and the vibrating of strings implied by its Indian name, the band’s sound embodies passion, energy, and taste.
Doors open at 6, show starts at 7. Tickets are $18 in Advance, or $20 Day-Of.
Check Out “Home” by TAARKA:
Adventurers through the many landscapes of world and American music, veterans of 1000-year floods and veggie oil tour buses, and relentless explorers of the inner worlds, the intrepid travelers in CO-based Taarka spin stories and melodies that transport audiences to a new and magical world.
Heirs to both the jazz-grass institution of new acoustic music created by the David Grisman Quintet and the compositional-yet-soulful songwriting traditions of the late 1960s, David (voice, mandolin, octave mandolin, guitar) and Enion Pelta- Tiller (voice, 5-string violin) seamlessly fuse “gravity-defying” (R2, UK) instrumental chops with songwriting of great depth and creativity, cooking up musical “sustenance that stays with you long after you’ve pushed away from the table.” (Westword, Denver).
Taarka has been a featured artist at festivals as diverse as The Festival Internacional de Chihuahua (MX), MusicFest Vancouver (CA), Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Mendocino Music Festival, Sisters Folk Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, and Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and the band’s music has been highlighted in films such as the 2015 documentary “1971.” The band and its members have produced and performed with Elephant Revival, backed up Peter Rowan, Darol Anger, and improvised on stage with members of the Grateful Dead and Phish. Gifted teachers as well as performers, Enion and David have offered workshops at music schools and camps from Mark O’Connor’s String Conference in San Diego to Escola Municipal de Musica Folk e Tradicional in Vigo, Spain.
TAARKA Band Members are:
David Tiller on Mandolin, Guitar, and Vox
Enion on 6-string Violin and Voice
Eric Thorin on Bass
