HOT PICK: Lucia Comnes Combo CD Release Concert at Spirit Garden
September 25-October 1, 2008 – p 42

Saturday: Diversity is the critical ingredient in the works of classically trained violinist Lucia Comnes. Enchanted by Europe and its diverse musical sounds, the San Francisco native has traveled to and studied the music of Ireland, Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria. After experiencing success with KITKA, an internationally acclaimed vocal ensemble specializing in Balkan/Eastern European folk music, Comnes has concentrated on creating her own style of music, blending the best of everything she uncovered in the travels, all set against a backbone of…wait for it…jazz. What results is her own genre of instrumental mastery. This CD release show celebrates Comnes’ debut album “On the way.” (QE)
