Simon Shaheen - New Haven, CT - 1997-06-29

Simon Shaheen at Jonathan Edwards College, Yale University, New Haven, CT on June 29, 1997.

This is a show I could really use some help with. It was part discussion/seminar, Q&A and performance. And it was all good.

Simon is a master musician who plays the 'oud and violin in a variety of styles, though my favorite work of his is The Music of Mohamed Abdel Wahab. The event was part of the annual International Festival of Arts and Ideas which takes place in New Haven.

I don't have anything from this event other than some great memories. If you have handbills, photos, links to online info or (is it too much to ask?) a recording, please let me know.
