Thamsanqa Shabalala of Ladysmith Black Mambazo – 2018 Lowell Summer Music Series


2018 photo100 – #53

I, like most Americans, first experienced the vocal power of this group on Paul Simon’s 1986 album “Graceland”. The simple stage setup for this group, 9 microphones, belies the complexity of the harmonies and rhythms crafted by this Grammy winning ensemble.

Oddly enough I didn’t find his head to be particuarly large. 😉 I did find his guitar chops to be stellar!

Rhiannon Giddens – 2018 Lowell Summer Music Series


2018 photo100 – #35

Wow. I was not familiar with her work before the show but, Wow… just WOW! Her repertoire ranges through blues, ‘old time music’, gospel and a whole lotta in-between. My personal fav. was her renditon of the Ethel Waters version of ‘Under a Harlem Moon’ – standing ‘O’ ladies and gentlemen!
