If you happen to find yourself in New York City this weekend, you might like to know that the 9th Annual Musical Saw Festival will be taking place on Saturday 16 July. The festival is organised by musical saw virtuoso Natalia Paruz, aka the Saw Lady.
You may recall we played the Saw Lady’s extraordinary version of the theme to Star Trek on PMB023 – Shatnoy, our show celebrating the combined 80th birthdays of William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy earlier this year. Well, here’s the video we got the music from:
Nearly 40 players of the musical saw have registered so far so if you’d like to immerse yourself in the other-worldly sound of the saw. Or if you’d like to join in on your very own instrument, why not head over to the Hellenic Cultural Center, 27-09 Crescent Street, Astoria, NY 11102-3142 from 2pm.
