Generations of Michigan folk music
The father-daughter duo of San & Emily Slomovits have been playing music together since Emily was a young child. San, along with his brother Laz, as the duo Gemini, have been a highly popular folk act throughout Michigan and the United States since 1973, and Emily began joining them on stage when she was just eight years old. Now 25, Emily is an accomplished violinist, at ease in a variety of genres from classical to folk, pop and jazz, while her exceptional voice and experience as an actor allows her to convincingly present styles ranging from folk to tunes from Broadway musicals. San and Emily’s beautifully blended, genetically enhanced harmonies and warm stage presence are hallmarks of all their shows. Emily recently moved to Chicago, but regularly returns to Ann Arbor to continue playing music with her dad and other musicians. For this concert San and Emily will be joined by two of their favorite collaborators, bassist Jacob Warren and pianist Brian Brill. One set will feature San, Emily and Jacob playing virtuosic arrangements of classical, folk, klezmer and pop tunes, while in the other set San, Emily and Brian will perform songs from classic Hollywood movies and Broadway musicals such as Oklahoma, The Sound of Music, Fiddler on the Roof, The Wizard of Oz and more.
Tonight's show is not aimed specifically at families.
