Josh Pinkham Trio added to college performing arts series
Playing a repertoire from bluegrass to jazz, the Josh Pinkham Trio — subbing in for the previously scheduled Jeremy Kittel Trio — will present an enlivened Middlebury debut performance featuring mandolinist Josh Pinkham, Ethan Jodziewicz on bass, and guitarist Jason Borisoff. The artists’ will take the Robison Hall stage on Friday, April 13 as part of the college’s Performing Arts Series. Yes, it’s Friday the 13th, but don’t worry this performance isn’t bad luck.
Adding to the fun of the evening, concert-goers will be treated to a special opening act by Middlebury College’s own Aidan O’Brien, class of ’20. O’Brien has sung and played guitar from a young age after being inspired at Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance in Trumansburg, N.Y. He performs solo and collaborates regularly with musicians in Middlebury and at home in western Massachusetts. No stranger to guest artists on the Performing Arts Series, O’Brien has taken master classes with folk musician Jenny Scheinman and the Danish String Quartet’s Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen.
The Josh Pinkham Trio is filling in the concert date for the originally scheduled Jeremy Kittel Trio. “We are so grateful to Josh for coordinating this impromptu trio performance with such talented colleagues,” Performing Arts Series director Allison Coyne Carroll explained. “We send our best wishes to Jeremy Kittel — who is recovering from a broken arm — and hope to present him next season.”
The Josh Pinkham Trio will perform at 8 p.m. this Friday at the Mahaney Center for the Arts on Middlebury’s campus. Tickets are $22 for adults; $16 for Middlebury College faculty, staff, emeriti, and alumni; $10 for youth 18 and under; and $6 for Middlebury College students, and are on sale at 802-443-MIDD (6433) or at middlebury.edu/arts/tickets.
Editor’s Note: Tickets purchased for the Jeremy Kittel Trio concert originally scheduled for this date/time will be honored.
