2. Sailor/Song from the Stone
PigPen Theatre Co. is a collective, a playwriting team, and a band from New York City. Their passion is storytelling and their vocally driven folk rock drives this point home. Old-timey instruments: piano, accordion and banjo blend with guitar, bass and keys to form their controlled but tumultuous sound. When forming sound to create visuals, the band is cognizant of their individual roles and the role of the group. They treat each instrument as a character who enters and exits at a pre-ordained time coinciding with the personality of each instrument and each player. Catch PigPen performing as they do best, with the flair and energy of playwrights.
