Sounds of Fort Warren: Big Lux Violin

Come to Georges Island this summer and let music fill your ears as you explore Fort Warren and the history of the island!

Hop aboard the ferry and head out to Fort Warren on Georges Island to enjoy a performance by Big Lux, an electric violinist with a Hip Hop flair.

*NOTE* This event is free of charge, but you must purchase ferry tickets separately.

About the Big Lux: Hailing from a family of talented musicians, Big Lux discovered the violin and Saxophone at a young age. Trained classically in the Suzuki method, he spent school days with brass in his hands and evenings with strings beneath his fingers. He learned other instruments, but it was the violin that called him loudest. Answering that call was the first step in a journey that put him on musical stages around the world, found him leading social justice events, and earned him an appearance at TEDx Providence.


This program is presented  as part of the commemoration of the Boston Harbor Islands’ 25th anniversary as a National Park and 50th anniversary as a State Park.
