August 6 – Emily Pinkerton Benefit Concert

Tickets: $65
COVID-19 protocols strictly observed

 

This performance, benefitting the programs of the Roxbury Arts Group, will feature the music of Emily Pinkerton. Emily Pinkerton’s driving force as a songwriter and ethnomusicologist is to explore the musical ties that bind the Americas. For two decades, she has traveled between the U.S. and Chile, playing fiddle, banjo, guitar, charango and guitarrón. Pinkerton writes songs that blend Appalachian and Andean traditions. She draws on studies with legendary musicians Alfonso Rubio, Chosto Ulloa, Patricia Chavarria and others, including extensive fieldwork with poet-singers of central Chile. It’s hard not to be enchanted with Emily Pinkerton’s music when it takes you from the North American Midwest to the South American Andes. The ubiquitous guitar makes it accessible, but the Latin rhythms and language turn it into an exotic, luscious thing. Career highlights include concerts at Sala América in Santiago, Chile, the Panama Jazz Festival, collaborations with Venezuelan violinist Eddy Marcano, and now Halcottsville.

So please bring a blanket or some folding chairs, and of course your mask, and join us for a night music, friends, and philanthropy.
