Peter Ostroushko - Heartland Holiday

Peter Ostroushko - Heartland Holiday

Peter Ostroushko's new recording celebrates the holiday spirit with music from a multicultural landscape he calls the "Heartland." It's a musical journey, from the beautiful ancient a cappella carols of Peter's Ukrainian heritage to hot Brazilian choros as interpreted by Peter's mandolin.

Recorded live in concert at the Fitzgerald Theater, Peter is backed by a stellar group featuring the vocal talents of Ruth Mackenzie, Tatiana Riabokin, and the awesome dreaded Nowytski Sisters.
