SC BACH and the ONE ROAD OVER MELODICA ENSEMBLE team up at THE BOHEMIAN CAFE TONIGHT at 7 pm to take the music of JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH to unexpected places!

You may think you’ve heard the beautiful music of BACH interpreted every way there is, but SC BACH, the Upstate Bach appreciation society and Asheville’s ONE ROAD OVER MELODICA ENSEMBLE beg to differ.

TONIGHT at 7pm in THE BOHEMIAN CAFE (doors open at 5:30), the Ensemble will perform Bach’s music on melodica, an unusual, tuneful instrument that is both charmingly light and more complex than it seems.

What members of One Road Over have in common is their love of playing music with other musicians, their curiosity about every kind of music, and their willingness to arrange and re-arrange all kinds of music for their own instruments. As a result, when they discovered they had a common interest in playing the melodica, it was inevitable that they form yet another band. The name alludes to the fact that although none had even heard of the melodica until 5 years ago, their love for the sounds and capabilities of the melodica leads them to travel a road that is parallel to one they’ve been on, but not one they ever expected to find.
