Barrage's Tony Moore talks about the band's high-energy string extravaganza




The Calgary-based string show known as Barrage has been described by its creators as a "high-octane fiddle fest" and as "an evening of performing jigs on rocket fuel" by the Los Angeles Daily News.

"That's why it's called Barrage," said Tony Moore, one of the show's creators. "It hits you over the head and it hits you again and again and again."

Think of what Stomp and Riverdance did for percussion and Irish folk dancing, respectively, only now it's ramped up violins — and better, creators naturally say.

Barrage performs at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Pasco-Hernando Community College Performing Arts Center, 10230 Ridge Road, New Port Richey. Tickets are $25-$30. Click here.
