Cello and song celebration, July 30
Cello virtuoso Dave Eggar and singer/songwriter Amber Rubarth will be returning to the Monadnock region for an evening celebrating folk song, story, and groove through the ages on July 30, at 7:30 p.m.
The concert being held at Heberton Hall is a collaboration between the Monadnock Folklore Society and The Walden School.
Grand prize winner of National Public Radio’s Mountain Stage New Song Contest, Rubarth writes songs so personal that it touches the universal. At 21-years old, Amber decided to quit her career as a chainsaw sculptor in Nevada in order to pursue her hidden passion for music. She taught herself guitar, began playing open mics and recording her songs, and soon was being asked to perform throughout the U.S. and Europe.
A musical prodigy, Eggar began playing the cello and piano at age three, performed on Broadway and with the Metropolitan Opera at age seven, and debuted at Carnegie Hall at age 15. He is a graduate of Harvard University and the Julliard School’s doctoral program and has performed worldwide as a solo cellist and pianist.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for seniors, juniors and advanced sales. Tickets can be purchased online at www.monadnockfolk.org.
