From ancient monasteries in Armenia to festivals throughout Europe, Bet Williams and John Hodian have been creating and performing music together for over 20 years. With the globe trotting world music ensemble “Epiphany Project”, the alt-rock “Bet Williams Band” and the Armenian “Naghash Ensemble” the music these two artists create is a vast quilt of influences and inspirations.
From Qawwali devotional songs to Appalachian Folk, acoustic blues and Tuvan throat singing, singer/songwriter Bet Williams uses her voice in an endless number of unusual ways. John Hodian’s piano playing features haunting melodies and intricate rhythms that reflect his Armenian roots and love for improvisation. Together their music is a blend of ancient and modern cultures but the earthy rhythms and chant-like melodies make it strangely familiar. This concert will be particularly special as they will be performing with their 11 year old son Jack, on drums and percussion.
