September 10, 2014
Tim will share with us an evening of intense instrumentals and transformative song, spanning regional traditions and generations of music making—from old ballads to shape note gospel, original songs to dance tunes from New England and Southern Appalachia. His musical experience and repertoire include adventurous explorations of South Indian classical, Bosnian pop, world jazz and punk rock.
Woolley Room, Mary Lyon Hall, 9:30 p.m.
September 29, 2014 After a decade of success with performances in Japan, Russia and Morocco, as well as a 26-month run in Paris, André Nerman and his troupe will return to Wheaton with Jacques Brel ou L’impossible Rêve, featuring Mr. Nerman (voice, guitar), Nelly Anne Rabas (voice) and Laurent Clergeau (piano). Brel (1929-1978) is a towering figure of “chanson” and Nerman’s company provides a rare opportunity to hear Brel’s best-known songs as he wrote them, in French. Tickets are $5 each and may be purchased at the door. Kresge Experimental Theatre, Watson Fine Arts, 7:30 p.m.
