Alpine County concert features Ancient Future

Staff reports

Share an evening with Ancient Future, a group which offers the hottest sound in the popular new genre of music called “world fusion.”

The talented musicians in the Ancient Future group, under the leadership of Matthew Montford, combine world music traditions from master musicians of various disciplines from East Indian sarod master Ali Akbar Khan to Bolivian panpipe master Gonzalo Vargas to tabla master Zakir Hussain, just to name a few.

Ancient Future combines world music influences with the contemporary sounds of jazz and rock to create exciting rhythms and exotic sounds from around the globe.

They have performed hundreds of concerts throughout the U.S., including New York City’s Carnegie Hall and San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall.

The Alpine County Arts Commission brings Ancient Future back to the area on Friday, June 26, at 8 p.m. at Turtle Rock Park Community Center located at 17300 State route 89, just two miles north of Markleeville.

Tickets for the concert are $7 for adults and $3 for children. Reservations are recommended. Call the Alpine County Arts Commission at (530) 694-2787.

This performance is sponsored by the Alpine County Arts Commission and is supported in part with funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and the California Arts Council, a state agency.
