Adrienne Shamszad: American Folk/Soul & Traditional Persian Songs
October 26 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| $15 - $20
Oakland-born Iranian-American artist Adrienne Shamszad blends folk, soul, and singer-songwriter elements with traditional Persian music and lyrics that are as inspired by the mystic poets of Iran as they are by the folk poet-songwriters of the 1960s and ’70s. At her Red Poppy debut, expect to hear songs from her recent EP, which features her Persian songs.
Adrienne Shamszad – vocals, guitar
Schuyler Karr – bass
TBA – percussion
Adrienne Shamszad has traveled extensively, studying theater, music, and dance throughout Asia, India, and the Middle East. Her mission is clear: to weave together the threads of her study and creativity into an original musical fabric that moves and inspires her audiences. Her impressive musical range extends from the sacred to the profane, the mystical to the earthy, the lofty to the down-low, and she is equally at home with acoustic or electric music, improvisation, gospel, Indian mantras, rock & roll, rhythm & blues, and Persian classics.
Time: Doors 7:00PM / Show 7:30PM
