Studio Theatre Concert May 3rd

Chicago Street Theatre's acclaimed One Night Jam concert series is bringing Colorado-based artists Acoustic Eidolon to the intimate Edith B. Wood Studio Theatre on Friday, May 3.

"My wife and I have been fans of theirs for years," said series producer Paul Braun.  "We've just always loved their music and their personalities, and I'm glad that a date finally worked out to bring them to Valparaiso."

Joe Scott and his wife Hannah Alkire, also known as Acoustic Eidolon, have played a number of times in the Chicago area, but this is their first time in Northwest Indiana.

What kind of music do they perform?  Well, it's hard to classify. It's part Celtic, part Flamenco, part folk...with a few vocals thrown in for good measure.  "How about 'World music for the soul'?" said Braun.

Joe plays a number of instruments, but the one he plays the most is a custom design of his own, called a double-necked Guitjo.  One neck is strung like a regular guitar with an extra bass string, and the other neck is strung like a banjo but with two extra treble strings.  He plays both necks, and the effect is beautiful, often harp-like.

Hannah's instrument has only 4 strings and one neck, as Joe likes to point out, but she is a trained, world-class cellist. Together, they make incredibly rich, uplifting, beautiful music.

Joe and Hannah started out as musical partners, fell in love, and got married.  The music that they make is truly out of shared respect and love, and it simply flows.  Powerful, moving, spiritual, relaxing, uplifting.  It's really very unique.

The Edith B. Wood Studio Theatre (or Edie's Attic as Paul refers to it) has a very casual, living-room or coffeehouse feel. It's simply a fantastic room to get intimate with the music.  "Joe and I have been working on this show for quite a while, and we are both truly looking forward to it," Paul said.

Tickets for the Edie's Attic shows are extremely limited.  Don't miss out on this musical gem - order yours today. This is a show you will long remember.
