Old Grey Goose band to perform in Mongolia

Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ The U.S. Embassy Ulaanbaatar and the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State introduced an Arts Envoy to Mongolia: Old Grey Goose International. Old Grey Goose is a musical band that will be in Mongolia from May 13-22 to introduce Mongolia to a truly American musical genre – Old-time Country Music, a precursor to bluegrass.  The band also teaches old-time country dancing and features the fiddle tunes that accompany the dances.

Bluegrass, which shares roots with American country music, is engaging, has a sense of timelessness, and urges people to clap to the rhythm, get up and dance, and sing along.  During their visit, Old Grey Goose will be performing and sharing their musical knowledge with budding Mongolian musicians, dancers, and artists.

Old Grey Goose will hold two free public concerts featuring those budding Mongolian performers. The first will be on May 18th in cooperation with Mongolian Selenge Dolgio National Song & Dance Ensemble in Selenge province and the second will on May 21st at the State Philharmonic Hall in Ulaanbaatar.  The concerts will be a culturally enriching experience and a rare opportunity to see this American music performed live in Mongolia.

Vocal harmony, acoustic (non-electric) instruments, and narrative songs about daily life and struggles are often hallmarks of this music. These distinctions make traditional American song and dance an ideal form for collaboration with Mongolian musicians and artists.

Old Grey Goose makes music of love, work, diversity, and achievement from the vast repertoire of American folk history, and they teach and calls regional dances representing multi-cultural traditions.  Presentations will give their audiences a fresh view of America that is different from what is commonly shown in blockbuster movies and will focus on core American values and traditional cultural strengths.  The musicians are international artists who have had extremely successful performances with traditional artists in Central Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa.

Old-time country music and bluegrass are a form of American folk music that, like country music, came from American Appalachian mountain music.  Appalachian music has its own roots in Irish, Scottish and English traditional music and dance.  The folk musicians that emerged from this tradition were inspired by the music of immigrants that came to America from the United Kingdom and Ireland.  Musicians blended this music with influences from the African-American traditions of jazz, ragtime, and blues.  The band also specializes in the regional music and dance styles of their home state of Maine, New England, and the maritime provinces of Canada.

Old Grey Goose is experienced in composing and arranging collaborative musical scores designed uniquely for each host country and presenting educational workshops. They will be active in cultural exchange activities throughout their visit and are excited to have the opportunity to learn more about the people, culture and musical traditions of Mongolia.
