House Concert: Shakuhachi Grandmaster Performance
Riley Lee: The Sound of Bamboo from 5:00pm - 7:00pm Admission: $15 by advance reservation. Children under 12 free. An evening of Shakuhachi with the visiting master, Lee began playing the bamboo flute in Japan in 1971. He was given the rank of Dai Shihan (grand master) in 1980. Riley's studies with traditional teachers in Japan have included such peculiar methods as practicing barefoot in the snow, blowing into his flute under waterfalls and in blizzards until icicles form at its end, and running the Boston Marathon and then playing taiko drums at the finish line. Please bring a dish to share. We will break bread together before the performance begins at 5:15pm. The performance will last an hour and a half.
