AN EVENING WITH ALBERT EINSTEIN

 

Saturday, July 15, 2017 | 7:00pm

It's Berlin 1914, Albert Einstein awaits news from an eclipse expedition that will prove his Theory of General Relativity. But Einstein is sent sideways in a world crumbling around him due to The Great War, colleagues stealing his theories, being isolated for this pacifist views, a wife who won't give him a divorce, his failing health, a huge scientific backlash, antisemitism, thoughts of suicide, his own self destructive genius and a young son fighting for this affection. Meanwhile he comes up with a theory that changes the way we live our lives today.

THE FERALINGS

 

Thursday, July 27, 2017 | 7:00pm

THE FERALINGS are Benj Upchurch (mandolin / vocals), Nicole Upchurch (clawhammer banjo / vocals), Patrick Brickel (upright bass / vocals), and Stacy Webster (acoustic guitar / vocals), but the name is a bit of a misnomer, as the members of the band are far more likely to invite you to sit down and enjoy a cup of tea than they are to jump you and steal your beer money.

The result is THE FERALINGS, a rare collaboration in which all members write, sing, laugh, engage in general naughtiness, and genuinely like each other. They travel a vast musical landscape, combining bully musicianship, sparkling harmonies, and evocative songwriting. And hey, they don’t bite.
