Ground-breaking meld of classical strings with heart-pounding hip-hop
With special guest, Dylan Chambers at 7 p.m.
Black Violin is a blend of classical, hip-hop, rock, R&B, and bluegrass music. The duo are classically trained viola and violin players who first met playing in the high school orchestra in Florida. Named one of the hottest bands at SXSW in 2013, Black Violin was invited to perform at Bonnaroo and returned to SXSW standing-room-only crowds. Since starting Black Violin a decade ago Wil Baptiste and Kevin “Kev Marcus” Sylvester have performed an average of 200 shows a year in 49 states and 36 countries as far away as Dubai, Prague and South Africa, while appearing at official NFL celebrations for three Super Bowls and last year’s U.S. Open in Forest Hills with Jordin Sparks. Their groundbreaking collaboration has taken them from performing for the troops in Iraq to both the official President’s Inaugural Ball and the Kids Inaugural in Washington, DC, where Barack Obama himself gave each a hearty handshake. Individually and together, Black Violin has collaborated with P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin and The Eagles.
