Metashvili on the road: Review of Burning Bush, live in York, UK
Nan Metashvili caught Burning Bush in York, UK, at a sold out concert on Dec 12, 2004. A former resident of Alaska, she is in the UK prior to traveling on the West Africa.
Much surprised to realize that we have never mentioned Burning Bush on the KlezmerShack before, except on our calendar. Our family saw the band back in 2000 or so in London, at Barbican Hall (sp?), but felt that the music was a bit too homogenized for our taste. The show was quite visually interesting, though. (For context, we were blown away by the Argentinian duo, Lerner and Moguilevsky, who played in the lobby prior to Burning Bush, and returned to the hall later that month to catch John Zorn with Fred Frith in my all-time favorite Zorn concert, and one of my all-time favorite concerts ever.)
The KlezmerShack did link to a review of a different concert by Burning Bush written by Richard Sharma, who has been missing in cyberspace for several months. I hope that it is only computer problems that are keeping him out of sight.
