Revels RiverSing is an experience difficult to put in words or even truly capture in pictures or on film. There is a power, a force, that is created when people come together and sing. I sat with the group's Artistic Director, Patrick "Paddy" Swanson, to hear more about Revels and this wonderful experience.
Who are the Revels?
Revels are a group of artists and performers. We have been performing for
Ready... Set... GO! So our June is off to a great start. We had three awesome shows last week. The Boston Hassle show presented 4 local bands, running the gamut from ingenue Ragu to local legend Bad History Month. The following evening showcased 4 youth musicians on The All You Got Tour. On Tuesday 6/12, we held our first children's event with a sing-a-long with Kassandra Melo. Both she & the bubble machine were a big hit & we can't wait to have her back!
UP NEXT - The Seba Molnar Jazz Quartet will grace our stage on Fri. 6/22, 7-9 pm. We had a cancellation for our scheduled theatrical performance on 6/24, so this might be it for June, #sadface. But don't worry, we will be back after the Independence Day break & will be going like gang busters! We are still ironing out contracts with performers, so we will be adding another 20 or so events to the schedule as things get signed. Stay tuned to the SCHEDULE page for updates! We are looking for volunteers to help us at each event, so if you have already received that email, please complete the poll & let us know your availability. If you haven't signed up to get email alerts yet (about shows, volunteer events, etc.), please do so on the GET INVOLVED page & we will contact you.
Have a safe & happy 4th everyone!
