Musicians will offer a taste of Peru

CISSNA PARK — The Hathaways Peruvian Trio will perform at 3:30 p.m. Sunday in the fireplace room at Creekside Prairie, 510 Prairie Lane, on the northeast side of town.

Tickets will be available at the door, but Creekside will serve Peruvian treats and local beverages during the event and would appreciate a reservation. Call Sue Wellman at 815-457-2453 or email

The Hathaways are Kate and James Hathaway, siblings who grew up in Rossville. With Tom Turino, a retired ethnomusicology professor at the University of Illinois, they play their own indie-pop original music influenced by Andean folk music, particularly that of Peru.

The two Hathaways have toured and played at festivals in Peru, always to a warm reception and acclaim for the way they infuse American pop music with Peruvian soul. The trio today also will play traditional music of the Peruvian Andes, incorporating the charango (a 10-string lute), kena (a wooden flute) and guitar.

The Hathaways, as well as Turino, also will give a video presentation on Peru and that region and take questions from the audience.

Tickets for the event are $7 for adults and $3 for students age 13 and older. Children 12 and younger are admitted free. Groups of eight or more receive $1 off each ticket.
