It's Berlin 1914, Albert Einstein awaits news from an eclipse expedition that will prove his Theory of General Relativity.

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.

THREE MEN AND A TENOR

 

Friday, November 17, 2017 | 7:00pm

What started with these four guys and one song has grown into a show that has now been seen by over 2 million people and is approaching it’s biggest year yet. As 3MT continues it’s musical journey, they are motivated to play a role in making people smile and laugh at a time when many have forgotten how. And if they accomplish nothing more, that seems worth the effort.
