This past Sunday, American Patchwork Quartet came to the Weis Center to kick off the Spring
season. The musicians worked harmoniously together to create their own spin off of traditional
American folk songs. It was beautiful to see band members of various cultural backgrounds
come together to highlight that there is not just one definition of “American”. I enjoyed the blend
of traditions and I could tell that the other patrons did as well. Something about the folk tunes
and overlays of vocals and instrumental segments gave audience members a sense of comfort
and feeling at home.
