Via Colori Festival – Nov 20th

   Posted by: Jay Lee   in Calendar

The Flying Fish Sailors will be performing live at the 2010 Houston Via Colori Festival on Saturday, Nov. 20th at 12:00 noon! It has been awhile since we have performed so this is a GREAT opportunity to come out and see us AND see a bunch of really cool art being created on the very streets of downtown Houston.

Admission is free and it is an all ages, family friendly event. Via Colori takes place on Allen Parkway (Lamar St.) and Bagby St. surrounding Sam Houston Park in downtown Houston.

The FFS are dusting our dusty, crusty old classics for your listening pleasure. We’ll also be joined by the one and only Jim Bedinghaus on hand percussion so it promises to be a very lively set!

For more information please visit the 2010 Houston Via Colori Festival Web site!

Recently we unearthed a CD containing some live recordings of the band performing at the 2002 St. Patrick’s Festival at the old Garden In The Heights. The Fish were joined by our friend Tim Vorick on the drums and legendary hammer dulcimer player David Clauss of Celtic Stone fame.

Here are live versions of American Woman, Lark In The Morning, Loch Ness Monster, Remnant Stew and a jig medley of Morrison’s Jig, followed by the Swallowtail Jig, followed by more of Morrison’s Jig
