Cyprus Avenue Presents Wylliams/Henry Live at the Folly

Cyprus Avenue Live At The Folly

Music lovers of all genres are making their way to the Folly on Saturday, September 19. Creator and host of KCUR’s Cyprus Avenue, Bill Shapiro will host Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company for an evening of dance and popular music. Music selections are drawn from rock, country, reggae, and many others, and feature songs from artists like Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Aretha Franklin, The Beatles, Chuck Berry, The Rolling Stones, and Patsy Cline, just to name a few.

Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company connects with a broad spectrum of audiences in this performance thanks to so many popular hits that inspired the choreography for Saturday’s performance. The Company has a reputation for its high energy and bold expression, making Wylliams/Henry a perfectly diverse group to perform the music of our time at Cyprus Avenue Live.

Cyprus Avenue Live has brought musicians to the Folly stage and will do so again, but with Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company, guests will experience music with a visually stunning performance of contemporary dance to go along with it. KCUR’s Cyprus Avenue Live radio show has been preparing for the event, and with Shapiro’s enthusiasm to host, it’s expected to be one like no other, as the Folly stage will be turned into a revolving door of both sound and dance in one night.

The Folly Theater will bring together a fun night of artistic adventure. Seating just under 1100 guests, the Folly will allow for an intimate night of performers to one of Kansas City’s historical landmarks.

Tickets to Cyprus Avenue Live with the Wylliams/Henry Contemporary Dance Company are available for purchase now through September 19.

Cyprus Avenue Live will continue later this season with the following notable acts:

Rhiannon Giddens, October 11

Sam Baker Band, November 6
