Encore! Professional Concert Series: 2013-14


Friday, October 4, 2013 ~ 7:30 p.m.

As the accordionist and clarinetist jammed together to The Godfather theme in the halls of the conservatory, they knew exactly what they had to do: start a klezmer band. But what happened was a completely different story. Joined by a whole family of other instruments, Sagapool went from Balkan and Gypsy-inflected impromptu shows on the summer streets of Old Montreal to crafting acoustic original instrumentals as a six-piece band. Co-sponsored with the Centre for the Arts, Brock University
