The Andrew Collins Trio

Saturday, November 18 @ 2:30 pm

The mercurial, JUNO-nominated, Canadian Folk Music Award-winning mandolin maestro Andrew Collins finds himself at the epicenter of Canada’s burgeoning acoustic/roots music scene. His trio, which includes Mike Mezzatesta and James McEleney, showcases a popular collision of bluegrass, folk, jazz, classical, and swing.

This concert made possible by a generous memorial donation from the family of Louise Myers.

Nighthawk: Earth & Sky

Thursday, December 28 @ 6:30 pm

You’ve had enough holiday festivities and you’re full of plum pudding. Now you can settle into those comfy seats, surrounded by books, and bask in the sonorous sounds of the cello entwined with the soaring notes of the violin.  It’s as if you could stand on the earth and touch the sky.

Back from her home in Providence, Rhode Island, rural Chillicothe native Emmy Holmes-Hicks (violin) joins Chicago cellist David Sands in the musical duo NighthawkThe two virtuosic performers will take you on a musical tour that includes a few sizzling tangos, a Beethoven duo, a little Yuletide cheer, and some stunning Celtic arrangements. They might even pull out a couple of old-time fiddle tunes.

Admission is free, as always, with donations gratefully accepted. Coffee, tea, and cookies, too, will warm you on this winter’s eve.
