Fungi Jamboree Taking Over Reichhold Grounds Feb. 2


Jan. 16, 2008 — Reichhold Center for the Arts returns with the third installment of its widely entertaining, educational and successful Playing Ring series. "Playing Ring: A Fungi Jamboree," takes over the Reichhold grounds on Saturday, Feb. 2.
The night starts with the traditional marketplace at 6 p.m. featuring local foods, arts and crafts, according to a Reichhold Center news release.
Fungi music, like the cornmeal dish of the same name, is an eclectic mix of musical flavors. Musicians play instruments such as the triangle, ass pipe, tambourine and banjo.
The musical acts for the Fungi Jamboree span the Caribbean, representing St. Thomas, St. Croix, the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and Dominica.
The Playing Ring series is made possible through partnership with Reichhold Center's season sponsors: First Bank, First Insurance, Marriott Frenchman's Reef Resort, Tropical Shipping, the V.I. Council on the Arts and Innovative Cable TV. Additional financial support is provided by Sen. Sean Michael Malone and the 27th Legislature with the passing of Act 6969 (Bill-0077).
Tickets for "Playing Ring: A Fungi Jamboree" are $35, $18 and $12. Tickets are available at Modern Music, UVI Bookstore, V.I. Bridal & Tuxedo, Urban Threadz, Essentric Shoe Boutique, Island Video (Nisky), Home Again (Red Hook) and the Reichhold Center Box Office at 693-1559.
