Saturday Sessions - Looping Fiddle with Josie Quick

Music and Dance
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Level 1 Schlessman Hall

Starting simply, Josie Quick creates her own string orchestra with a single electric violin. With the use of live looping she can sound like a blues band, other times like an African marimba ensemble. Her wide musical influences and various techniques create an ocean of sound, providing the perfect accompaniment to her spontaneous improvisations.
