From Brooklyn to Stillwater

Posted at 12:00 PM on August 13, 2012 by Daniel Gilliam

The string quartet Brooklyn Rider makes it back to Stillwater once a year for their Stillwater Music Festival (of which they are Artistic Directors) to present several concerts at The Washington County Historic Courthouse, the Stillwater Public Library and one show at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis. The complete schedule is available here. Of note are the concerts with kemancheh virtuoso Kayhan Kalhor, Bela Fleck and the free family concert. World premieres abound during the festival.
