Roving Improvizational Interventions by Mash Potato Mashers. Nuit Blanche 2011, Guelph.

The Mash Potato Mashers are a mobile band creating music wherever they go. Blending diverse musical traditions (Balkan, Klezmer, Brazilian, New Orleans, Funk, Marching Band, Country, etc.), this group energizes a city space and creates a venue for performance. The timing of Nuit Blanche in Guelph coincides with the first weekend of the Fall term at the University, so the streets were filled with students. The students were ‘costumed up’ appropriately and prepped to perform for their own audiences. A magical musical mash-up happened when the worlds of the Mashers and the students collided.

What’s all this?

I've created this site to document and share research and activities related to my Masters of Arts program. It's partially a blog, partially a journal, partially whatever you want it to be. Feel free to have a good look around at what I'm reading, seeing, writing and thinking about. I'd love to see/hear your comments.
