Rufus Cappadocia- World Cellist- From a Night of Creative String Music in Brooklyn

This is the first part of a series covering the Creative String Music scene in New York City. This particular evening found many of us performing together at Jalopy in Brooklyn. I hadn't seen Rufus Cappadocia in a while, and it was great to capture some of his solo performance and check in to see what he's up to these days.

Rufus Cappadocia

 

In a soon-to-follow blog I’ll showcase the performance which followed Rufus, by Joel Harrison‘s String Choir, performing the music of Paul Motian. It featured myself, violinist Sam Bardfeld, violist Mat Maneri, and cellist Choi Fairbanks as well as guitarist/composer Joel Harrison and guitarist Liberty Ellman. The videos below give a glimpse into the amazingly original playing of Rufus and a peek into his current activities and interests, as well as his explanation of “roots music”, a term I had heard often but never really understood.

The (not so?) funny insults I receive about my violin playing

If you’re tired of fighting with your inner critic, know this:
It’s common for musicians of all ages and abilities to feel anxious and//or have self-doubting thoughts.
I and many of my adult students and colleagues struggle with insecurities. If this applies to you, you’re far from alone.
