Creekside Concert at Sylvester Manor

 

CREEKSIDE CONCERT AT SYLVESTER MANOR

Brooklyn-based Los Hacheros Heats Up the End of Summer

 

Date: Sunday, August 25, 2019   5pm (gates open at 4pm)

Location: Sylvester Manor, 80 North Ferry Road, Shelter Island, NY

Price: $35 in advance/$40 at the door; free for kids 10 and under

 

Shelter Island, NY: Sylvester Manor Educational Farm finishes out their 2019 concert series with the final summer show down by Gardiners Creek. Brooklyn’s Los Hacheros, modern-day torchbearers of the Golden Age of Latin music, revive folkloric styles like son montuno, guaracha and salsa, and often combine them with Bomba, a fiery rhythm from the mountains of Puerto Rico.

 

“Los Hacheros has the magic of group improvisation. We play in a style that is swing oriented and emphasizes the Cuban clave like great ones of old: Arsenio, Reve, Ritmo…” says bassist William Ash.

 

Sylvester Manor Events Planner, Alice Clark states, “Los Hacheros brought the sultry sounds of summer to our Season Preview event in Brooklyn in March. We are so thrilled to be welcoming back this talented group to headline our August Creekside Concert at Sylvester Manor.”

 

A band of only five musicians, Los Hacheros can sound like a conjunto of 12. Eddie Venegas (Marc Anthony, Orquestra Broadway), plays violin and sings chorus, improvises mambos on the trombone, Itai Kriss (Edmar Castaneda, Grupo Latin Vibe) sings, plays flute, campana, and guiro, while Papote Jimenez is in charge of lead vocals, soulful soneos (improvised verses) and congas. William Ash (Alfredo de la Fe, Brenda K Starr) holds down the tumbaos on baby bass while Jacob Plasse plays the tres, a guitar-like instrument originating from the Oriente Province in Cuba.

 

Los Hacheros is sure to get the audience up moving and shaking at the Creekside stage of Sylvester Manor, where concert goers can avail themselves of the local food and beverages for sale or bring a picnic basket.  On the Road Food Truck, John’s Drive-ing Ice Cream Truck and local wine and beer will be available for purchase. Families, frisbees, hulu hoops and of course...dancing, are encouraged! Tickets can be purchased by visiting www.sylvestermanor.org/music. This program is partially funded by the County of Suffolk.

 

About Sylvester Manor Educational Farm: Once a Native American hunting and fishing ground, Sylvester Manor has since 1652 been home to eleven generations of its original European settler family. Over time, the place has been transformed from a slaveholding provisioning plantation to an Enlightenment-era farm, then to a pioneering food industrialist’s estate and today to an organic educational farm responsive to, and supported by, our neighbors and friends worldwide. In light of this history, we envision a farm, a community, and a world where people celebrate food, arts, and inventiveness in the everyday, with a spirit of fairness and joy.
