David Alderdice with FEAST at Mountain Harvest Festival in Paonia, CO
September 29 | 10:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Funky Classical Celtic World Fusion band FEAST brings a fun and unique approach to crossing musical genres. Playing mainly Celtic-inspired music with their own original twist, FEAST mixes classical, traditional, and modern techniques, tunes, and instruments. Classically trained string instrumentalists and keyboardist play beautiful soaring traditional melodies on top of a backdrop of funky Afro-Cuban influenced world-beat drum set and bass grooves. It’s a feast for the ears and a musical experience to be remembered.
FEAST has toured in Europe and America and all FEAST members have performed nationally and internationally as trained classical musicians and are all very passionate about crossing over into the timeless music of Ireland and exploring music from the rest of the world. FEAST’s powerful and emotionally driven, virtuoso performances have been greeted with wild enthusiasm and standing ovations from audiences of all ages. FEAST’s musical programs offer a broad emotional palette along with a delightful variety of styles and original arrangements.
FEAST band members appearing at this year’s MHF will include Alisha Bean (champion fiddler) on Violin, Stephanie Mientka (Colorado Symphony) on Viola, Zachary Reaves (Altuis Quartet) on Cello, Benjamin de Kock (El Sistema Colorado) on Acoustic and Electric Bass, Katheryn Mientka (WSCS) on Electric Piano, and local percussionist and music educator, David Alderdice (Embodying Rhythm) on Drumset and Percussion.
