Seasonal Special Happenings

One Hundred Years of Joy

When: Fri., June 14, 7:30 & 10:15 p.m. 2013

The Cleveland Foundation’s Creative Fusion Program is bringing a rare style of music to Hudson as performed by acclaimed Vietnamese artist Phạm Thị Huệ. Called “One Hundred Years of Joy,” the show features ca trù, a rare, centuries-old poetic singing tradition — which is uncommon even in Vietnam — and is said to have been performed in the United States only once before. The music features unusual instruments like the đàn đáy (long-necked trapezoid lute) and đàn tỳ bà (pear-shaped lute), so fans of non-traditional instrumentation and lyric poetry won’t want to miss the opportunity to check out the show. It starts tonight at 7:30 at the Old Church on the Green. Admission is free but donations of at least $10 are suggested, so don’t be a cheap ass and show up without any cash. (Jacob DeSmit)
