Ilusha Tsinadze at The Cooperage
HONESDALE, PA — Georgian-born singer and guitarist Ilusha Tsinadze will bring his multicultural story of dreams and discovery to the stage at The Cooperage, 1030 Main St., through a captivating take on Georgia’s venerable music traditions on Saturday, March 10, doors opening at 7 p.m .and music starting at 7:30 p.m.
At the age of 8, Ilusha immigrated to New York, leaving behind the Georgian Civil War, yet taking with him a rich cultural history that has remained an essential part of his own. Known today for his warm stage presence and soulful voice, he invites audiences to see through his eyes as he introduces village songs into conversation with the global city. Hauntingly beautiful Georgian melodies interweave with contemporary American musical elements: a mirror of living with one foot in New York City, the other in a little nation on the Black Sea. The New York Times wrote that he “invites audiences to experience heritages that are simultaneously global and local.”
The suggested donation is $15 in advance or $20 at the door. For reservations call 570/253-2020 or email info@ thecooperageproject.org.
