Together Cedric Watson & Sidi Toure with their band, International Blues Express, find common ground in the blues while exploring distinct music traditions from far-flung corners of the francophone African world. Using fiddle, guitar, frottoir (rub board), triangle and ngoni (the four-stringed African lute, an ancestor of the banjo) this intercontinental quartet features two musicians from Africa and two from Louisiana. Tickets are $37 for adults and $32 for youth, seniors, and military, available at: www.fairbanksconcert.org, Grassroots Guitar, or call 490-2858.

6. ARGENTINE TANGO WORKSHOP
Argentine Tango Workshop with Felipe Martinez April 12-13 at Artisanís Courtyard.
Workshop will consist of four classes, 90 minutes each, following a progression of elements fundamental to dancing social tango. Social tango is not choreographed, rather improvisationaly created by an understanding of posture, connection, movement technique, respect for other dancers, and musicality. These classes will provide new dancers with a solid foundation in Argentine tango, challenge more experienced dancers to deepen their understanding of the movements, and experience more profound connection, all while having a great time. Call 479-8477 or email mom.geophysicist@yahoo.com for more details and have a promo flyer with complete schedlue and other details emailed to you.

happening every Saturday, and so will Blues Night at the Howling Dog on Thursdays and dancing at Chatanika on Sunday evenings.
