Ross Daly & Kelly Thoma ~ Live Studio Performance!

Ross Daly.jpg

Folk Music & Beyond welcomes master musician Ross Daly from the Grecian isle of Crete.  He draws upon a number of popular and classical idioms mainly from the Balkans and Middle East, but also from North Africa and Central and South Asia, incorporating elements of each into his compositions and renditions of traditional repertoire.  Daly performs a couple of extended pieces on the Cretan lyra, accompanied by Kelly Thoma on lyra, Kaila Flexer on violin, and Gary Hegedus on oud and octave mandolin.  Hear the broadcast until 11/3 via KALW's Local Music Player.
