Two Performances Set for Monday, September 17 at CU

Athens, W.Va. – Raquy and the Cavemen will perform as part of the Artist Lecture Series at Concord University Monday, Sept. 17, 2007, at 7 p.m. in the main auditorium of the Alexander Fine Arts Center, and the Student Activities Committee will host the performance of Anthem at 9 p.m. in the Student Center ballroom.

Raquy and the Cavemen perform progressive Middle Eastern music using a variety of exotic instruments, pulsating rhythms and evocative scales. The leader of the group, Raquy, plays the Iranian Kamanche, a rare exotic bowed instrument similar to an ancient violin.

They have appeared at Lollapalooza, Central Park Summerstage, FloydFest and many other music festivals. This is their second performance at Concord University.
