Matthew Sabatella and the Rambling String Band bring their multimedia show to the Luna Star Cafe. “American Heritage Music: From Plymouth Rock to Rock & Roll” is a 90-minute multimedia stage show that celebrates the music of America. With vocals, guitar, banjo, fiddle, mandolin, bass fiddle, and an array of beautiful projected images, Matthew Sabatella and the Rambling String Band take audiences on a journey that connects traditional folk songs, spirituals, fiddle tunes, Appalachian music, ragtime, blues, rhythm & blues, jazz, old-time country, bluegrass, and early rock and roll. Audiences sing along to familiar favorites and enjoy stories of how the music came to be. Since before the United States declared independence, songs, instruments, and musical styles were brought to the New World by British colonists, African slaves, and immigrants from other parts of the world. New songs and genres emerged from the encounters between these diverse people and the unique American experience itself. As America changed, grew, and pushed its boundaries, so did the music. This is American heritage music. This is your birthright. Own it.
