Learn about a journey down the Mississippi through song, music
BRANDON — Eve Beglarian will present a music and performance piece titled “Brim, the River Project” at the Brandon Town Hall on Saturday, June 8, at 7:30 p.m.
Beglarian embarked on a four-month journey down the entire Mississippi River by kayak and bicycle. She immersed herself in local histories and the writings of those who had made similar journeys, including Mark Twain and Jonathan Raban. Inspired by her voyage, “Brim” is a collection of original compositions, adventurous arrangements of river-related songs, images, videos and spoken-word readings.
The presentation will include one her fellow travelers, Brandon resident Mary Rowell. The two will sing and play a variety of instruments including violin, viola, guitar, mandolin and electric bass. Oregon ArtsWatch says, “(The) enchanting, enthralling evening proceeded in a riverine fashion, flowing and turning, touching visual, sonic, literary destinations, characteristically embracing pop … classical, electric, electronic, acoustic territories and more.”
Admission, by free-will donation, benefits the Brandon Town Hall. The program is sponsored by Friends of the Brandon Town Hall, Lake Sunapee Bank, Kellie Martin and Mark Corbo, and Reynolds Insurance Company, Jim Reynolds.
