Rio con Brio in the Wee Ceili Room, Tualatin, Oregon
Rio Con Brio - Brazilian Mandolin & Guitar. http://www.rioconbrio.net Rio Con Brio captivates audiences around the country with their intimate performance of the beautiful and esoteric Brazilian repertoire known as choro, the early 20th Century street music of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Influenced by equal parts Afro-Brazilian rhythms and the contemporary cafe music of Italy, France, Spain and Portugal, choro is both exotic and familiar, evoking in turn the carnival of Rio and the cafes of Paris.
Guitarist Mike Burdette and mandolinist Tim Connell exhibit finesse and passion in their playing, while displaying a sincere love of the choro repertoire and connection to their audience. An evening with Rio Con Brio is a delightful tour of European and New World music as experienced by the mandolin and guitar and as told by two soulful, intelligent, modern musicians - a beautiful intersection of Brazilian rhythm, classical technique and jazz improvisation.
This concert is in a private home in Tualatin in the 'Cul an Ti' named the 'Wee Ceili Room'. Many international musicians have performed here in this intimate setting that requires no electronics, totally acoustic.
We will start the evening out by a social hour at 7pm. We encourage all to bring something to share with food and or drink.
After the concert, we welcome players that attended to session with these fine folks and the others to just enjoy the craic!
