Saturday, Sept. 29th, 7PM (doors at 6:30)
Celtic Multi-instrumentalists Elizabeth Nicholson and Bob Soper
Elizabeth and Bob are bringing an evening of ballads of heartbreak and murder to the Arts Center on Sept. 29th.
Harpist and singer ELIZABETH NICHOLSON is at the vanguard of a new generation of Celtic musicians. Considered among the top American interpreters of Irish traditional music for harp, her studies have also included classical, Paraguayan, and medieval harp, and she has stretched the traditional boundaries of the instrument into rock music and country blues.
BOB SOPER is counted among the NW’s most astonishingly versatile multi-Instrumentalists. A rock and jazz drummer from a young age who also studied classical Indian music at the Ali Akbar College in California, he went on to learn the Irish fiddle, ultimately becoming one the Northwest’s most sought-after players. Also an accomplished banjo, guitar, & bouzouki player (and a singer of both Irish and American traditional styles), hes been a member of some of the regions most beloved and successful ensembles, including the Irish bands Cul an Ti and Grafton Street, as well as the old-time/country-blues group The Pagan Jug Band.
Wine, beer, and other refreshments are available for purchase.
Concerts benefit the Long Beach Peninsula Acoustic Music Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization.
