Flagstaff Arts Council and The Arboretum at Flagstaff are pleased to present Traveler in concert at The Arboretum on September 6, 2014. Doors open at 4:45 pm and the concert is from 5:30 – 7 pm with an intermission.
Traveler’s sound is an innovative fusion of World Music and Rock. Using traditional ethnic instruments combined with all the power of a full blown rock band, their performances are intense, exotic and adrenaline-driven.
The real magic of a Traveler show is in the connection they make with the audience. They give a high energy, passionate performance that draws the audience in.
Scott Jeffers is the composer and band leader. His own Lebanese heritage and American upbringing has inspired him to fuse elements of ancient ethnic music with rock.
He has traveled through foreign lands to gather inspiration for the Traveler project. He is known for his fiery and passionate violin and vocal performances; moreover, Scott’s commanding presence onstage adds to the trademark power of the live Traveler shows. He also brings traditional instruments from his journeys to the stage, such as the Bouzouki, a traditional Greek stringed instrument.
The concert takes place on September 6, 2014. Doors open at 4:45 pm and the concert is from 5:30 – 7 pm with an intermission. Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner. Tickets are $14 for members of The Arboretum and Flagstaff Arts Council; $18 for non-members; and $9 for kids 6-16.
