'Children of the Revolution'

by Carolyn Butler
   Duvall Arts Commission will present Children of the Revolution Wednesday, July 17, at 6:30 McCormick Park on the Snoqualmie River at NE Stephens Street and Main Street in Duvall. Admission is free
   The show celebrates the inherent musicality of Greek, Croatian, Turkish, Middle Eastern, Gypsy and Spanish heritage.
   Children of the Revolution is led by Vassili on lead vocals, flute and acoustic guitar, and Eric Jaeger on flamenco guitar, bouzouki and vocals music.
   Vassili and Jaeger are joined by a Greek lyric soprano opera singer, a mad violinist from Broadway, an exquisite young belly dancer, a Turkish/Greek world music virtuoso, a flamenco dancer, a Japanese flamenco singer, the foremost Middle Eastern percussionist in the region, and a Figian tabla player whose mother played with the Beatles.
   An added highlight of this first summer concert is a special twilight appearance by The Cabiri, a performance troupe named for ancient fire spirits.
   The Cabiri specializes in storytelling through physical theatre.
   Come early and bring a picnic dinner. Several Duvall restaurants are offering "Wednesday Night Concert Take-Out Specials" between 5 and 7 p.m.
   For those with mobility impairments that make accessing the park difficult, the City of Duvall is again providing free shuttle service.
   The shuttle van leaves from City Hall on Main Street every 15 minutes beginning at 6:00 p.m.
   Due to the temporary closure of the Woodinville-Duvall bridge, be sure to allow time for a detour across the Novelty bridge or the High Bridge Rd. bridge if you are coming to Duvall from the west or north. Information: (425) 788-2983 or
