Tingstad and Rumbel – Twelfth Night Tradition
January 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Wrap-up your holiday season, and start off the New Year with the captivating music of Whidbey favorites, Tingstad and Rumbel. For over thirty years, Grammy Award-winning artists Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel have been home for the holidays creating a longstanding tradition with Northwest families. The duos perfect blending of Americana fingerstyle guitar, double reeds; and the ocarina lends magic to any season and fills the world with hope and beauty through the redeeming power of music. Music critic Bill Binkelman raves, “Acoustic instrumental music simply doesn’t get any better – period.”
Nancy grew up in San Antonio, Texas and continued her musical education at Northwestern University where she became interested in ethnomusicology, improvisation, and dance. She was a member of the Paul Winter Consort for several years prior to her move to the Pacific Northwest. Eric grew up in Seattle and attended Western Washington University where he was trained in the Segovian classic guitar tradition. He is a product of influences like Led Zeppelin, Hawaiian slack key guitar, Ravi Shankar, and Martin Denny.
Adult tickets are $22 and youth are $15. Zech Hall Piano Bar opens one hour prior to the performance.
