REGGAE RETURNS TO VOMA! With a style as unique as its members are diverse, Mosaic Foundation is forward thinking reggae that stays true to the roots. Formed in 2009 and based in the Finger Lakes region of New York, the band has grown a loyal following, thanks to electric live performances and three studio releases. Blending roots, ska, dub, dance-hall and beyond, Mosaic is an exploration in reggae that is pushed to the limits and sometimes spills over. With lyrics that inspire dancing in the moment, and activate the mind in reflection, the songs encourage positivity, sustainable living and community.

 FRI  Aug 12 th  6:30pm   The VOMA Folk Series Presents: Wrong is Right w/ special guests The Bird Dogs

 “Wrong is Right” is a young, fresh, and sassy stringband that is guaranteed to make you smile. You can’t go wrong with their righteous blend of bluegrass, old-time, newgrass, and swing!”— Dr. David Wallace, Fiddler and String Chair of Berklee College of Music.

Boston’s Wrong Is Right swirls rustic roots into a smooth tapestry of modern folk music. From the time this band met in a cold Boston winter and hunkered down in a warm little room, they’ve been spinning songs and tunes, honoring and feeding the roots traditions they have arisen from.

This group is distinctly captivated by iterations of the traditional high lonesome sound, as well as by the gritty buzz of the bow tracing sounds and fiddle tunes of the old south. As a trio, they utilize their skill and finesse on their instruments to communicate with each other and with their listeners. Their melodies can expand into vibrant and energetic conversations, and can just as quickly bring listeners to the edge of their seats with moments of soulful tranquility. On stage their voice is strong and pure, weaving together many folk traditions such as jazz, bluegrass, old-time and elements of chamber music.

Wrong Is Right strives to expand the audiences of this newly defined string-band repertoire and recolor old stories with their own verdant voice. Their light hearted demeanor tumbles out of their music adding a uniquely vivacious aspect, setting them and their music apart.
