INTERNATIONAL STRING TRIO:

 

True to its name, the International String Trio (IST) has honed an expansive repertoire embracing nearly a dozen styles from far-flung lands. Employing their instruments as passports, the adventurous trio unlocks the doors to a global array of tunes drawn from jazz, folk, popular, classical, film and other sources. Featuring Russian-born guitarist Slava Tolstoy, British violinist Ben Powell and American acoustic bassist Greg Feingold, the IST's players embody its cosmopolitan aesthetic.

The trio’s performances encompass a breathtaking range of styles, including Gypsy swing and jazz, old-time Appalachian laments, traditional Irish reels, celebratory klezmer, passionate tango, graceful French musette, and burning bluegrass. While steeped in jazz, they play intricately arranged music that leaves room for improvisation without focusing on it. Recent performance highlights include a highly successful Northwest Tour, an appearance on the popular NPR show “Says You,” and performances at the Gypsy Jazz in Paradise Festival. Recent videos released on YouTube have taken the digital and social media worlds by storm, amassing close to 200,000 views in the last few years.

The International String Trio will be joined on stage by the Paul Mehling and Evan Price of the Hot Club of SF, friends of the International String Trio.
