Troubadour Sessions-Ben Prestage
MASTER OF THE DIDDLY BOW!!!
Music to my ears! No matter what he plays! Starring Ben Prestage in one of our “Troubadour Sessions”!
Ben Prestage – Ever heard anyone play a door or bedpan? Come and listen to this master of the diddly bow, cigar box, and anything else with strings.
In our ongoing quest to best serve our beloved community, we are adding a very eclectic basket of music to our already robust repertoire at the Elliott Museum. Through a unique collaboration with Ron Hart at Earthtones, who is the former owner of Terra Fermata, we will present six incredibly diverse offerings in the Museum’s acoustically perfect Forum space.
The series is called “Troubadour Sessions,” and the name is, by all counts, as intriguing as the musical acts themselves.
What is a Troubadour, you ask?
One of a class of lyric poets and poet-musicians often of knightly rank who flourished from the 11th to the end of the 13th century, chiefly in the south of France and the north of Italy — and whose central theme was courtly love. Admittedly, many of these acts will not evoke the essence of a 13th-century minstrel…but the music will always be sublime.
The Forum is a beautiful room, visually and acoustically, but seating will be limited to 75 guests for each exceptional performance. We hope to create a quality listening-room experience for our guests fortunate enough to have a ticket.
Admission to these events will be $20 Online or $25 at the door-Seating is limited to 75 guests
JOIN US FOR DINNER!!! The fantastic new tiki “Hut” will be open for dinner and drinks before each performance, and we will offer a full bar outside the Forum throughout the show.
All performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. Buckle your seatbelts.
