What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? with the Rockport High School Madrigal Singers
March 25, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 pm$10
Named after a Victorian children’s game, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? can time-travel from 1960s soul of New Orleans back to the woods of Medieval France before landing in the Tin Pan Alley era of NYC. Led by the gender-defying voice of 3rian King, the ensemble delivers their own brand smoky cabaret, neo-soul and acoustic noir, sounding something like Tom Waits and Amy Winehouse performing in a French cafe.
The ensemble is known for its original songs which marry rich lyrical imagery with a cinematic sensibility, exploring themes of love, spirituality, sexuality, and identity. Beginning as a duo when singer-songwriter 3rian King and violinist and trumpeter Nathan Cohen performed in a New Year’s Eve concert in 2004, the duo quickly became a staple in Boston’s underground cabaret scene, blending music with elements of circus, dance, and other performing arts. As audiences grew, the group incorporated Dennis Monagle on drums, Renée Dupuis on voice, keys, and melodica, and Joe Cardoza on upright bass. The band can perform as an acoustic ensemble or a full theatrical experience with backup singers, Shana Cahill & Liz Bean (known as The Furies) and aerialist, Eileen Little.
