The second annual Friday Folk Night @ ZSR featured the Nashville duo 10 String Symphony comprised of Rachel Baiman and Christian Sedelmyer (WFU-2007). The name comes from the fact that they each play a 5-string fiddle. The event was held on the evening of April 24 under cool but beautiful skies. This year the event was a collaboration between ZSR Library and the Music Department. Associate Professor Jacqui Carrasco had invited the musicians to campus to give her students a workshop and contacted us to suggest that they would be a perfect fit for our Folk Night spring concert. ZSR Fellow Le’Ron Byrd worked with Jacqui to plan the event and it turned out to be a wonderful evening of excellent music that was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended.
