Akron’s Angie Haze is a musical free spirit. The singer/multi-instrumentalist, who proudly assumes the labels “gypsy” and “vaudevillian,” dresses colorfully, wears bells on her ankles and plays eclectic music. It’s like she stepped into the present from 50 years ago, a hippie who found a time machine and arrived in northeast Ohio straight from the San Francisco Human Be-In of January 1967, dressed in flotsam and jetsam from global cultures and making crazy-quilt music that expands the mind — even without LSD.
Recently, she worked on a project called “The Bigger Picture” with students from Miller-South Visual Performing Arts School in Akron. That resulted in a DVD that will be broadcast on the local PBS outlet. But you can snag a copy when she celebrates its release at G.A.R. Hall in Peninsula. There she’ll perform with her Angie Haze project — a revolving group of her vaudevillian and musician friends — as well as some of the students from Miller-South.
Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door.
