Brule' @ Paramount 2015~ 620x400 DL

Native American Band: Brulé live in concert

Saturday, September 12th 2015 - 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm at The Paramount Theatre
215 East Main Street, Charlottesville, VA 22902

Virginia Foundation for the Humanities Presents this Award-Winning Native American Music Group!
Hailing from South Dakota, Brulé thrills audiences with a fusion of cultural rock, traditional sound, and theatrical dance. Now in their 20th season, their performances carry the same contagious excitement as Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Celtic Thunder, and Riverdance. Brulé’s electrifying show includes a five-piece rock ensemble with traditional Native American instrumentation, paired with one of the top U.S. Native American dance troupes. The musical journey of Brulé’s founder, Paul LaRoche, adds an important message about cultural reconciliation and healing. The result is Native America meets Pink Floyd in a spectacular stage production of sight, sound, and soul.

Brulé will conduct a Workshop Stage talk and performance on Friday, September 11, at 7:00 p.m. at Tandem Friends School in Charlottesville and a full performance on Saturday, September 12, at 8:00 p.m. at The Paramount Theater in downtown Charlottesville. The Workshop Stage event at Tandem will be free of charge, and tickets to The Paramount performance are $12 in advance, $15 at the door, available at The Paramount box office. Both events are open to the public.
