Living Room Concert Series welcomes Meadowlark
Also at Vino di Sedona this week
The husband-and-wife duo of Rick Cyge and Lynn Trombetta will perform as Meadowlark in the Living Room Music Series May 20.
The Center for Positive Living, 45 Castle Rock Road in the Village of Oak Creek hosts the weekly music series.
Meadowlark creates an uplifting, instrumental journey inspired by the beauty of natural places. There is a wonderful chemistry between the pair and listeners are amazed to learn that the richly layered music that is their signature sound is created by only two musicians.
The skillful combination of these two fine artists on guitar and flute creates music that is both intimate and grand that floats gently, following the land and dances like a butterfly in the breeze. As Meadowlark, they create captivating, organic music that is as distinctive in sound as it is diverse in scope.
Original compositions showcase Cyge's amazing range and deep musicality as both a composer and guitarist as the harp-like sound of his fingerstyle guitar technique intertwines with the pure, melodic tones of Trombetta's flutes and Irish whistles.
Meadowlark's performance slips effortlessly from melodic tapestries to crisp and exciting up-tempo offerings that catch the ear and command attention. Nightclub performances blend fresh arrangements of music by pop favorites such as Cat Stevens, Nora Jones, Van Morrison and more into the mix. This magical mixture is also available as romantic solo guitar or as an ensemble with violin and/or percussion.
CPL Sedona's Music Director, Shondra Jepperson and founder of the Living Room Music Series said, "This is the second time Meadowlark has performed here in the Living Room and for those who've not heard or seen them up close and personal, here's an opportunity. Rick was with us a few weeks ago as a solo artist and his performance was outstanding."
Jepperson continued, "Lynn is one of the most exquisite flautists I've heard. She and Rick together are pure musical heaven."
Wednesday, May 27, will feature the popular trio Yarrow, finishing up the spring line up before the Living Room Music Series goes on a summer hiatus.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the music starts at 7. There is a $10 cash only admission.
Meadowlark will also perform a vibrant, colorful mix of world-influenced music this Thursday evening, May 14, at Vino di Sedona, 6-9 p.m.
Performing on flute, pennywhistles, and guitar, Rick Cyge and Lynn Trombetta as Meadowlark create an uplifting, instrumental voyage inspired by the beauty of natural places throughout the desert southwest. Meadowlark's compositions meld influences as diverse as Celtic, African, and Mediterranean traditions to create captivating, organic music which is as distinctive in sound as it is diverse in scope.
