Make Music New York – Moondog on the Streets

June 21, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a very special performance in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the passing of American-born avant-garde composer and “street musician” Louis Thomas Hardin, aka Moondog, featuring acoustic performances by Moondog specialists .

Beginning in 1949 and for nearly twenty-five years, the man who was quickly nicknamed the Viking of 6th Avenue – due to his personal connection to Manhattan and his extravagant look – accompanied the daily life of New Yorkers by playing his music in the streets on percussive instruments of his own making. Seventy years later, our trio, outfitting with a singular instrumentarium designed for this occasion, will pay tribute to the street music imagined by one of the first Dharma Bums.

A musical creation by Murailles MusicL’Usine Cnarep de Tournefeuillethe Studio d’en Haut and the Ville de Toulouse.
