McKendree Presents: ETHEL + Robert Mirabel: The River
Adventurous New York string quartet ETHEL and special guest artist Robert Mirabal continue their deeply successful cross-cultural collaboration, inspired by Water as the embodiment of Spirit, and its essential role in Life on Earth. The audience is immersed in a flow of music, narrative, and ritual that evokes timeless Native American traditions through contemporary musical artistry. As delivered by these master performers, the sound is dazzling, the effect is breathtaking. Three-time Grammy Award-winning musician, writer, singer, and storyteller Robert Mirabal of the Taos Pueblo is Native America’s most dynamic and best-selling artist. In addition to the music and instruments he creates, he is also a celebrated painter, poet and playwright.
