Acoustic Eidolon performs at Vail Library on Thursday
VAIL — Acoustic Eidolon, featuring Joe Scott on double neck guitjo and Hannah Alkire on cello, will play a concert at the Vail Public Library at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday. The library is located at 292 West Meadow Drive.
Scott and Alkire are from Colorado and have graced stages throughout the U.S., Europe, Australia and Canada. Acoustic Eidolon captivates audiences with its signature “new acoustic” sound blending Celtic, folk, world and Latin music influences.
Their original sound is created by the mixing of their diverse musical backgrounds and their unusual instrumentation including the one-of-a-kind double neck guitjo, an instrument of Scott’s own design praised by USA Today as a “beautiful harp-like sounding instrument … like nothing we’ve ever heard before.”
Alkire, a classically-trained cellist, studied with G. Magyar of the Hungarian String Quartet and is recognized internationally for her stunning tone and emotional, impeccable playing and for taking the cello places it has never been before. The two joined their personal lives after forming their musical alliance and were married in 2001. The result is a coupling of intricate and passionate music with genuine and engaging stories.
This concert is free and open to the public. For information, call 970-479-2187.
