Performing Arts Series
Alasdair Fraser & Natalie Haas April 26-27 2023
The DePauw Performing Arts Series will present the Scottish traditional folk duo of fiddle Alasdair Fraser and cellist Natalie Haas in concert. Fraser and Haas are two of the preeminent proponents of a style which infuses elements of jazz and world dance music into traditional Scottish fiddling to create and eclectic blend of hard driving yet ethereal instrumental duets The Boston Globe has described as “...urbane as a Manhattan midnight and as wild as a Clackmannan winter.” More Information Here

THOMPSON RECITAL HALL
Actors from the London Stage
Each year the Actors From The London Stage (AFTLS) cast a touring company from among Britain’s finest actors to bring to American colleges and universities a lively text-centered production of two of Shakespeare’s most well- known plays. This fall the AFTLS will be touring Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It tells the story of a Scottish war hero who, upon returning home from battle, is urged by his ambitious wife to assassinate his king, Duncan, to seize the throne of Scotland. Thereafter Macbeth commits further murders to retain his ill-gotten power, until he is ultimately defeated by the patriot MacDuff, and Duncan’s son Malcolm assumes the crown as rightful ruler of Scotland. Macbeth is considered to be one of Shakespeare’s finest tragedies, and is the shortest of his masterpieces. Using only five actors who each play multiple roles, the AFTLS company is famous for its robust physical and vocal performances of Shakespeare’s works.

Multi-instrumentalist and Singer Hubby Jenkins
On Wednesday November 2 at 7:30pm in Moore Theatre in the Green Center for the Performing Arts, the DePauw Performing Arts Series (PAS) will present Hubby Jenkins. Jenkins is a talented multi-instrumentalist who endeavors to share his love and knowledge of old-time American music. Born and raised in Brooklyn he delved into his southern roots, following the thread of African American history that wove itself through America’s traditional music forms. As an integral member of the Carolina Chocolate Drops and later Rhiannon Giddens band, Jenkins has performed at festivals and venues around the world, earning himself both Grammy and Americana award nominations. Today he spreads his knowledge and love of old-time American music through his dynamic solo performances and engaging workshops.
