Whimzik wows with eclectic music, performance art combo

Written by 

art whimzikWhimzik will be having a DVD release performance at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 27 at the Jackson County Public Library in Sylva.

The group includes Glenn Kastrinos, a multi- instrumentalist who plays flutes, whistles, guitar and octave mandolin in the Celtic and Scandinavian tradition, and Kjelsty Hanson who plays bodhran and is a mask performance artist.

Whimzik has been performing for 10 years in North America, New Zealand and Sweden. They bring creative exuberance to their performance and hope to awaken a sense of wonderment in the audience.

To start off the show, a group of children ranging in ages from 7 to 11, that have taken a mask making and performance workshop with Hanson, will perform. The children have named their group “That’s a good one!” 

The DVD was produced and directed on Western Carolina University’s campus. It includes collaborations with Arledge Armenaki, Bruce Frazier and students from the stage and screen department and music school.  

The event is free and open to the public.

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
