Turtle Island Quartet Presents Music of Jimi Hendrix and David Balakrishnan

August 1, 2011 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm


The two time Grammy® Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet ventures to Electric Ladyland, tackling works by singer songwriter, Jimi Hendrix and Turtle Island Quartet co-founder David Balakrishnan. Tonight’s program features a variety of Hendrix favorites as well as Balakrishnan’s Tree of Life, a new work that integrates classical, soul and Indian music from the composers background.

For over 25 years, Turtle Island Quartet has been an ambitious force, propelling the creation and development of chamber music for strings while managing to honor the past and redefine the present. With two Grammy® Awards (2006 and 2008) for Best Classical Crossover, and a new album, Have You Ever Been…?, Turtle Island Quartet is sure to continue their role as the primary innovative energy for chamber music.
