The Pasadena Folk Music Society on Saturday presents the Susie Glaze New Folk Ensemble, well known for Glaze’s stellar voice, top-drawer instrumental prowess and group vocal abilities.
Glaze and company perform a repertoire of traditional tunes and ballads, old and new. The sound features a tasteful blend of eclectic mountain folk numbers and Celtic-inspired originals.
The ensemble uses traditional instruments including guitar, fiddle, bouzouki, Appalachian mountain dulcimer, autoharp, mandolin and upright bass. The group has received favorable comparisons to legendary acts including Fairport Convention and Pentangle, in a blend of classic folk and rough-edged stories of tragedy and fate.
Music starts at 8 p.m. Saturday in Beckman Institute Auditorium, 400 S. Wilson Ave., Pasadena. Tickets are $20 for adults, $5 for Caltech students and children younger than 12. Call (626) 395-4652 or visit pasadenafolkmusicsociety.org.
