Strings Attached and Humpty Bumpus

Come for a night with some of Nelson’s most talented musicians as two bands from the Selkirk music program share their sound!

Strings Attached is a dynamic acoustic world music ensemble, featuring violin, mandolin, 2 guitars, upright bass and drums. They plan to take you on an upbeat musical journey around the world. Lead by Selkirk College Music instructor Don Macdonald, the band plays fresh arrangements of traditional and co…ntemporary music from Ireland, Bulgaria, the Middle East and the U.S. in styles including Bluegrass, Funk, Rock, Gypsy Jazz and Afro Cuban.

Humpty Bumpus is lead by recording artist/educator Kiyoshi Elkuf and features a two saxophone, guitar, bass, drums ensemble that has spent the long winter sharpening their edges on intense grooves and floating melodies. Laying down the backbeat off the beat gives the band a sound of now jazz with a breath of familiar funk air. Here them play an inspired set of originals and relevant interpretations.
