STOMP

Get more info about this event »

Description: STOMP is explosive, inventive, provocative, witty, and utterly unique — an unforgettable experience for audiences of all ages. The international percussion sensation has garnered armfuls of awards and rave reviews and has appeared on numerous national television shows. The eight-member troupe uses everything but conventional percussion instruments — matchboxes, wooden poles, brooms, garbage cans, Zippo lighters, hubcaps — to fill the stage with magnificent rhythms. Year after year, audiences worldwide keep coming back for more of this pulse-pounding electrifying show. As "The Boston Globe" says, "If you haven't seen STOMP, GO! If you have seen it, take someone and share the pleasure!" STOMP. See what all the noise is about. http://www.k-state.edu/mccain/events/2016-2017/stomp.html The McCain box office is open weekdays 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 90 minutes before each performance. 785.532.6428 Submitted by: Todd Holmberg McCain Performance Series

Danish & Métis fiddle concert
Danish & Métis fiddle concert

Get more info about this event »

Description: On April 28 and 29th we are presenting, ScandiNatives, Fiddle Music from the Metis and Nordic Traditions featuring Jamie Fox & Kristian Bugge (USA/Denmark). The event will include a Friday evening concert, a Scandinavian dance workshop on Saturday afternoon and an opportunity to practice the dances at a dance party that evening and to enjoy another grand Scandinavian social event. Dancing is not a requirement at the the evening dance party. The concert: Traditional dance tunes, whirling waltzes, happy polkas, groovy jigs, fiery reels and breathless hopsas plus the exotic Sønderhoning dance tunes from the Island of Fanø, Denmark are simply a brief glance into the complexities and multi-layered performances of the fiddling couple Jamie Fox and Kristian Bugge. To accompany the music they tell the stories of the traditions they both grew up in. Bugge (Denmark) is widely considered a master of traditional Danish music, and was awarded Folk Musician of the Year at the Danish Music Awards (Danish Grammy) 2016. Fox (Montana, USA) is one of the most well-known young players of Métis fiddle music which is a tradition crossing ties of Celtic, French and Native American music cultures. This contrast in approach and style helps to create a rich and complex sound. Together, Bugge and Fox perform groovy and warming sets that interchange between each performer’s strengths. This creates a versatile array of melodies that sends the listener’s ears to distant lands. More information about Kristian can be found here http://kristianbugge.com.
