Vanaver Caravan Musicians @ Opus 40
July 30 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$10 – $100
Local Treasures the Vanaver Caravan Musicians perform a range of world music, with dancing!
The Vanaver Caravan musicians have performed around the world and appeared at various dance festivals including Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, the Smithsonian American Folklife Festival, the Bienale de la Danse in Lyon and the Sidmouth International Festival in England.
The Vanavers have used their unique blend of dance and music from around the world to foster peace and social wellness. Their collaboration with the Friendship Ambassador’s Foundation brought them to the Romania and Bulgaria to work with the Balkan Peace and Reconciliation Conference. In 2002 the Caravan developed a program for 9/11 victims that used the arts to heal children and adults.
“You’ll have to see The Vanaver Caravan to believe the high professional skills they have developed to bring out the old folk traditions – and then to see how they make the audience feel part of the show. In the end, everyone is on their feet cheering!” — Pete Seeger
Evening includes food vendors and wine/beer/cocktails from Stockade 40, the Vintage Barcart of Stockade Tavern.
