This week on Art of the Song we feature Sandra Wong, Dominick Leslie, and Ty Burhoe, recorded live as a part of our Concerts and Conversations series in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The trio brings together an unusual combination of instruments… the nyckelharpa, fiddle, mandolin, and tabla… to explore music from all corners of the globe, as well as their own compositions. Reaching into their individual roots of bluegrass, jazz, Scandinavian, old-time American and both western and Indian classical music, their arrangements honor each tradition while moving into new, uncharted territory. Whether it’s an old-time tune in 7, Bach on nyckelharpa, mandolin and tabla, Swedish tunes from hundreds of years ago brought into a 21st century arrangement, or Shakti revisited; Sandra, Dom, and Ty create a musical playground for all to enjoy
