Dulcemelos (House Concert)

  • 18 May 2018
  • 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
  • Karen Ashbrook's
Alejandra Barrientos and Hector Larios run a school of folklorique music in Querétaro, Mexico. Alejandra, a lifelong student of her country’s traditional music, is a master of the salterio dulcimer — similar to a European hammered dulcimer, but played with finger picks. Her husband Hector is a concert pianist. Together, they run a folk music school, a children’s ensemble, festivals, and competitions; commission new works for salterio; take students to international music educator conferences; and perform as Dulcemelos. They will perform at Karen Ashbrook’s on their trip to West Virginia to pick up instruments handmade by Nick Blanton.

Reception 7:30; concert at 8. $20 donation suggested. RSVP/directions: Karen, mail@karenashbrook.com or 301-655-0103.
