String quartet performs Tuesday

The Haines Arts Council will present the Sweet Plantain string quartet 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Chilkat Center.

Tickets are $15, adults; $12, seniors; $8 students; and $40, families.

According to the ensemble’s website www.sweetplantain.com, the group combines "the western classical traditions in which they were trained with the hip-hop, jazz improv, and Latin rhythms on which they were raised" to produce "a sound that is contemporary, multicultural and very New York."
