Eclectic Ensemble & Music of the Sun


MinneCulture | KFAI

Eclectic Ensemble is an ambient and improvisational group that runs on solar power and transports all its gear by bicycle. The group has been performing its Music of the Sun project for two years, and was recorded live at Minnehaha Falls last summer. Awarded a 2011 Community Arts Grant, the trio will perform at outdoor locations across the Twin Cities from May through October. In this segment, hear selections from Music of the Sun, as well as commentary from band members Tim Donahue, Charlie Hendrickson and John Vance. Music of the Sun is made possible, in part, by funds provided by the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council from an appropriation by the Minnesota Legislature. Produced for KFAI by Nancy Sartor and Dan Zamzow.
