Sons of Serendip – Male Quartet – March 24, 2020 (FT)
A musical group of four friends, who through a series of serendipitous events, came together in graduate school; two teachers, a former attorney, and a former cello instructor. They each had been playing their instruments since childhood, but in 2014, they came together to start a long beautiful journey of creating music that touches people’s hearts. To this day, they continue to create beautiful music with a harp, piano, cello, and voice. Their music resonates deeply with listeners and, in many ways, makes their lives a little better – even if just for a moment.
Lost Fingers – Vocal Quartet – April 30, 2020 (FT)
An acoustic trio and vocalist, the Lost Fingers named after the two missing fingers of jazz legend Django Reinhardt and based in Quebec City, Canada, are known for their love of classic gypsy jazz, and ’80s pop hits. Their shows are a blending of both – seemingly disparate — styles, – covering hit ’80s tunes as well as playing homage to jazz legends. Their reputation and skill have won them a great many fans very quickly. The group, soon after forming, was playing some of the world’s best-known festivals, including a ten-night stand at the Montreal Jazz Festival.
