Barrage - Vagabond Tales


Barrage, the dazzling musical troupe known for their unique, international energetic attack on the playing of violins and fiddles, is continuing their 2004-2005 touring season with a return visit to North America, bringing their new show entitled "Vagabond Tales" to several Southern California venues.

The internationally acclaimed attraction will be represented at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium (February 11-13), the Long Beach Performing Arts Center (February 18-20), Haugh Performing Arts Center at Citrus College (February 26), and Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza (March 1-6). Barrage is presented by Theatre League and is a part of the 2004-2005 season at Pasadena, Long Beach, and Thousand Oaks.


"Vagabond Tales" features a multi-talented cast performing an eclectic mix of music, song and dance that vividly illustrates the adventures of an enchanting group of travelers as they gather in celebration and friendship.
The Vagabond's story is one of a sense of freedom, self-discovery and fun and a musical collision of Celtic, Ukrainian, Russian, American and Country, - with a sense of earthiness and a foot-stomping happiness and music making. Rarely has the variety of how to use string instruments been exploited with such joy.

The 2004-2005 worldwide tour of "Vagabond Tales' included a 6-week tour of Europe that included stops in London, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Poland as well as an extensive tour of Taiwan , the Philippines and China. With stops in Taipei, Manila Beijing, Houzhou, Wuhan, Huang Sui, Shijiazhaung and Chang Sha that included a television performance on the Chinese Central Television Network.


The cast features seven violinist/vocalists, one drummer, one bass player, a guitarist and a percussionist. The show is a creative offer of 5 to 1 Entertainment, the team responsible for determining the show's music selections, training each player, composing and arranging all music and recording and co-producing all shows.
