Stringsations Quartet plays at Music in the Gallery, QAG

There is something romantic about the image of a beautifully dressed woman walking down the streets of Paris, stopping to indulge in powder-puff boysenberry meringues, while the sweet sounds of an accordion wafts gently in the crisp morning air. It is so familiar and so novel – the croissants and cafe au laits, the cobbled streets with perfectly lined trees, the white terraces that stand tall on either side of the road. more

"Angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night." Allen Ginsberg first spoke these words from the heart at a poetry reading at Six Gallery in California in 1955.
