Caravan of Thieves, is slated for Tuesday, Oct. 16

For the past three years, this Caravan of Thieves has roamed the North American continent recruiting a family of avid thrill seekers at their high energy shows. Driving gypsy jazz rhythms, acoustic guitars, upright bass and violin lay the foundation for mesmerizing vocal harmonies and fantastic stories. It’s theatrical and humorous. It’s musical and intense. It entertains, dazzles and defies classification while welcoming the spectator to join the band in clapping, snapping and sing-along’s. The show begins at 7 p.m. at the Moffat County High School Auditorium.
