Stirfry Musette's eclectic gypsy style has an upbeat and dynamic spirit. Their world music instrumentation includes violin, guitar, accordion, mandolin, bass and percussion and a varied repertoire.
A typical performance might start with a Celtic air and a jig followed by an Eastern European czardas, a jazz cover, some Latin grooves and Stirfry originals. Can’t keep from dancing? Stirfry will get dancers to their feet! A perennial favorite in central Kentucky, this band has released two CDs, “A World So Small” and “No String Unturned,” to great acclaim and radio play on NPR stations.
A stellar lineup of talented musicians featuring Jeff Ellis, Joanna Hay, Ben Griffith and either Jordon Ellis or Jaret Ellis on percussion. Known for their joy-filled and fun performances, they often invite über-talented family and friends from near and far to join in as special guests.
Based in Kentucky’s capital city, Stirfry Musette is proud to call Frankfort’s Grand Theatre and Midway’s Holly Hill Inn their “home venues.” Highlight performances include the Lexington Opera House, the World Equestrian Games and the Downtown Frankfort Summer Concert Series.
