Upcoming event information: Quartetto Rosso - A Free Outdoor Italian Concert! Nokomis Beach Coffee Patio 4956 28th Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55417
Date: 12 Jul 2014 7:00 PM CDT

Quartetto Rosso (Red Quartet) is Minneapolis-based singer/multi-instrumentalist Robert Everest's latest incarnation of world music - in this case Italian music, of course.

Robert started playing Italian music over 15 years ago while travelling throughout Italy in 1998, the first of many trips to several regions of the country over the last 15 years. Since then he has performed for the Italian Cultural Center, Italian sculptor Tony Caponi's 90th birthday party at Caponi Art Park, the Festival of Nations, and Festa Italiana, as well as at many weddings and private functions. In a typical performance of this quartet you can count on familiar favorites like Funiculi Funicula and O Sole Mio, sung in Neapolitan dialect, but also some more contemporary folk and jazz tunes by artists like Francesco de Gregori, Lucilla Galeazzi, Vinicio Capossela, and Pino Daniele.
