with Tony Starlight and Ralph Huntley
Please join us for a fun President’s Day show with 3 Leg Torso and a couple very special guests.
3 Leg Torso's sound has been reported as wildly exciting, wildly eclectic, and all embracing. Their music is a mixture of fun, beauty and mayhem; a roller coaster ride through musical inspirations from France, Eastern Europe, Argentina, America and the Middle East. The remarkable musicianship of this cinematic chamber-gypsy ensemble and the dynamic stage presence is uncommon and exceptional. Sometimes brisk, prancing with mad eccentric elegance, and other times contemplative but never less than masterful.
3 Leg Torso formed in 1996 as a violin, accordion, and cello ensemble with the vision of creating original works that are inspired by music and cultures from around the world. Later, 3 Leg Torso expanded, adding double bass and an array of assorted percussion instruments , including vibraphone, glockenspiel and xylophone.
The ensemble has composed and licensed music for filmmakers including Academy Award winning animator Joan Gratz, Morgan Spurlock, Teller (Penn & Teller) Bill Plympton, and National Geographic special about doomsday preppers. Courtney Von Drehle, accordionist in the ensemble, received an Emmy nomination for his work on the Oscar nominated HBO documentary, The Final Inch.
The Award Winning Music Monday series is curated by Dean Mueller, who was nominated for a 2016 “Back What You Believe In” Muddy Award for his work at Lake Theater & Cafe. The series was also voted “Best Blues Venue” by the Cascade Blues Association in 2016. The music series started in June 2014 and features top national and regional blues, jazz, country, and roots artists. Over 1/2 of all the shows sell out and advance ticket purchase is highly recommended.
