Folk musicians to play at Town Hall
The award-winning band Deoro, which includes Dave Eggar and Chuck Palmer, is joining forces with Amber Rubarth for an evening celebrating folk song, story, and groove through the ages at the Nelson Town Hall on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
The trio will cover music spanning continents and centuries, from Bach to Dylan.
Deoro is a Grammy-nominated and Independent Music Award-winning band, featuring child prodigy Dave Eggar, who began playing cello and piano at age three. He 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.
Eggar has performed worldwide as a solo cellist and pianist. A virtuoso of many styles, he has performed and recorded with artists in numerous genres including The Who, Josh Groban, Coldplay, Kathleen Battle, Sinead O’Connor, Bon Jovi, and Manhattan Transfer. Whether it’s classical, reggae, bluegrass, jazz, pop, or world music, he finds a common voice within his musical vocabulary and introduces it with his own unique imaginative vision.
Percussionist, song writer and producer Chuck Palmer has performed and recorded with artists including Gil Goldstein, RJD2, Sly Dunbar, Frank Ocean, Lucia Micarelli, Luciano, Dr. Ralph Stanley, Junior Marvin, Alex Skolnick, Phillip Phillips, The City and Horses, Waway Saway and the Talaandig Tribe, and Amy Lee of Evanescence. He is a native of Ohio and a graduate of Capital University, where he majored in percussion with Robert Breithaupt. Palmer co-produced Dave Eggar’s Grammy-nominated release Kingston Morning and is a founding member of their group Deoro.
“Here is a letter from my lonelier self / to the one that’s in love once again / I couldn’t find you so I thought that I would tell / you a few things with my favorite blue pen.” So begins Amber Rubarth’s fifth album, “A Common Case of Disappearing.” Rubarth is a grand prize winner of NPR’s prestigious Mountain Stage New Song Contest. Produced by Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Kings of Leon), the album debuted at No. 13 on iTunes’ songwriter chart and features duets with Jason Reeves and Jason Mraz.
