January 26 @ 3:00 pm
Informal 45 minute presentation and lecture for patrons. Free and open to the public.https://www.quadcityarts.com/vas.htmlhttps://www.theokfactor.com/traditionsMinneapolis, MN-based string duo The OK Factor, and award-winning Swedish quintet Jaerv, present their program, Traditions. In 2017, the bandsâ€™ musical worlds collided after The OK Factor opened for Jaerv at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis. There was an immediate connection between them, grounded in a mutual love and respect for one another’s talent, rhythmic intricacies, inspiring melodic ornamentation, fascinating instrumentation, and – yes, musical traditions. After shared performances and the study of traditional Swedish and American music throughout their tour of Sweden, a natural and organic partnership has developed between The OK Factor and Jaerv that is felt, seen, and heard by their audiences, both in Sweden and in the US.
