Birdland Theater will present the return of New York-based, Honduran-American violinist Marissa Licata for two shows on Sunday, March 27 at 7:00 PM and 9:30 PM. After her successful solo debut at the venue last fall, she will offer two performances of “Strings on Fire,” featuring her all-star band: Michael Aarons on guitar, Martin Doykin on bass, Shannon Ford on drums, and special guest Aury Krebs on vocals.
“Strings on Fire” again lights up the stage with wild rhythms and sounds from around the globe. Mixing traditional folk music from Eastern Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East, with an improvised flair all her own, Marissa incorporates melodies and styles that will surely strike a familiar chord. There is a $30 music charge. Birdland is located at 315 West 44thStreet in New York.
