Mountain River Taiko 10th Anniversary Show
Saturday from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
Mountain River Taiko is celebrating 10 years!!
Please join us for our big celebration at Millside Park in Easthampton. Our performance will feature special guests from across the US who have shared taiko with us regularly: Tiffany Tamaribuchi (Sacramento Taiko Dan), Esther Vandecar, and Eileen Morgan (Fushicho Daiko). We will also be joined by local musicians Abby Kingman and Shido Hiroyuki, who have been instrumental to MRT's history.
**8/12: Unfortunately, Tiffany Tamaribuchi will be unable to attend due to illness. Stuart Paton, founder and director of Burlington Taiko, has graciously offered to step in in her place.
