Murderous Little World – Concert Version
The concert version of Murderous Little World takes on a different character from the multi-media version. It is more intimate and we get closer to the words of Anne Carson and closer to the spectacular musicians: Bellows and Brass made of Guy Few , Eric Vaillancourt and Michael Bridge , (Joseph Petric is on a leave of absence this spring). We premiered the concert version at the Cellars in Vancouver with Music on Main in 2012. We can’t wait to repeat the experience.
