MARION — PBS sensation and classical-crossover artist, Annie Moses Band, well-known for their fiery string playing and soulful renditions of beloved American songs, are bringing their spectacular show to the Palace on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 8 p.m.
The Annie Moses Band is comprised of five talented siblings who began their music training at a young age. Their studies took them to the Juilliard School and then expanded into an astonishing variety of genres including folk, bluegrass, and jazz.
The group combines technical skill with exhilarating showmanship in every style of music including an epic re-imagining of Gershwin and Copland classics “Rhapsody in Bluegrass,” “Summertime,” and “Hoedown,” a spellbinding rendition of “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,” and favorites like “I Only Have Eyes For You,” “Nat King Cole Medley,” Paul Williams’ “Just An Old Fashioned Love Song,” and Don McLean’s “And I Love You So.”
The Emmy Award winning band’s original songwriting and innovative arranging are also on call in beautiful ballads “Deep In The Fescue Meadow” and show-stopping fiddle fusion “Orange Blossom Special,” along with songs filled with spectacular wonder like “In The New World,” “Choctaw Cowboy,” and “West Pioneer.”
Tickets are on sale now for Annie Moses Band and are priced at $23, $28 Adult; $12 Child age 12 and younger.
