Mild Mannered Rebel 
Ear to the Sky Debut Album Release Concert


MMRTroubadourFlyer
 
A decade ago, American oud player and singer Mavrothi Kontanis had a breakthrough. Though Kontanis was steeped in the Byzantine and Ottoman sounds of his Northeastern Greek heritage, songs just kept coming to him in English. The lyrics-personal, defiant, intense-ran against the more roots-oriented grain of Kontanis' usual work. But as indie rock-style statements, they made perfect sense.

Like Icarus, the mythological wing-building young man who dared to graze the sun, Kontanis dares, in a soft-spoken, deeply reflective way, to soar and struggle, with his part-acoustic, part-electric band Mild Mannered Rebel. Summoning eerie images of constantly peering icons and moonlit longing, of hope-filled nights and a spiteful sun, Kontanis and his group's debut album Ear to the Sky seamlessly blend the modes, rhythms, and instruments of the Aegean with the drive, grit, and tumultuous inner world of rock.
Tonight's release concert of Mild Mannered Rebel's debut album, Ear to the Sky, will feature Megan Gould on acoustic and electric violin, Shane Shanahan on drum set and percussion, Brian Holtz on electric and upright bass and Mavrothi Kontanis on vocals, oud, fretless electric guitar, bouzouki and baglamas.
