Two Top Italian Artists Perform In US In March
Published March 4, 2008

Carmen Consoli and Vinicio Capossela, the leading voices of a new generation of Italian singer-songwriters, are slated to perform no less than five concerts in seven days in the States.

 

Hailed by the likes of Elvis Costello, Consoli will return to New York City on Thursday, March 6 at the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center’s Mainstage Theatre in Long Island City. A Saturday, March 8 performance at the Grosvenor Auditorium at the National Geographic Society’s headquarters follows Consoli’s special guest appearance at the Nat Geo Music Channel launch event held in Rome in October 2007.  Consoli’s D.C. concert will be taped for broadcast on Nat Geo Music’s worldwide network. On Sunday, March 9, Consoli will make her Boston debut at the Museum of Fine Arts’ Remis Auditorium. At all three events, Consoli’s vocals and guitar will be backed by a five-piece band.  She will perform a repertoire drawn from her more than decade-long career with arrangements that feature the traditional instruments of her Sicilian homeland.

 

Deemed “one of the cleverest and most eccentric musicians in Italy” by the New York Times, Vinicio Capossela will perform On Monday, March 10 at Joe’s Pub in Manhattan and again on Thursday, March 13 at the SXSW (South by Southwest) Music Festival in Austin, TX. He will be previewing new songs from his as of yet untitled forthcoming studio album, in addition to performing his best known compositions. These evenings will provide a sneak preview to the multiple Tenco Prize-winning musician’s 10th album.
