Boston-based folk trio, The Ballroom Thieves will be making their first Mountain Jam appearance this June while in the midst of their first tour with the Maine Youth Rock Orchestra.
“This collaboration represents much more than an alliance of two genres,” lead singer, Calin Peters told NPR Music. “Classical musicians have long been trained to live in a rigid world, yet this younger generation of string players already understands the beauty in a lack of rules.”
“Working with The Ballroom Thieves on this collaboration has given our orchestral students the opportunity to perform with a national band and demonstrate that they are not restricted to classical music,” says Kevin Oates, MYRO’s executive director and founder.
