Bee Eaters to play at Hilo church
The Bee Eaters Trio are in concert tonight at 7 p.m. at Holy Apostles Church, 1407 Kapiolani St. Hilo.
Since their formation in 2008, the Bee Eaters have been on a trajectory of growth, both personal and musical. Their ensemble work has taken on mature, textured and nuanced tones, as their compositions have become more thoughtful and intricate, with influences of chamber music, bluegrass and pop.
With Tashina’s delicate fiddle and Tristan’s grounding cello wrapped around Simon’s ethereal dulcimer, they have created a never-before-heard sound in American music. No tricks. No pyrotechnics. Three instrumental voices, united in their musical exploration.
Listening to the Bee Eaters is like eavesdropping on a spirited, private conversation. As wonderful as their recorded music is, watching the Bee Eaters in live performance is an exercise in safe danger. They parry and thrust, challenging each other at every moment. Their focus on their music and on each other is tight and complete. Their melodic lines and rhythmic phrases dance and sometimes roil over, under and around each other. There is sometimes dissonance but always an ultimate harmony.
Performance donations are requested with students admitted free.
