GREENVILLE—Darke County Center for the Arts will present musical duo Acoustic Eidolon at Montage Cafe on Thursday, March 23; part of DCCA’s casual Coffee House Series, the evening will feature Joe Scott playing an instrument of his own invention, the double-neck gitjo, and Hannah Alkire on cello. “This talented married couple tour the world joyfully entertaining audiences with their unique sound,” said DCCA Artistic Director David Warner. “Joe creates a beautiful harp-like sound playing both necks of his gitjo simultaneously, while classically trained Hannah’s impeccable playing simply takes the cello places it’s never been before,” Mr. Warner explained.

Acoustic Eidolon’s signature sound blends Celtic, Americana, World, and Flamenco musical influences, creating what Dirty Linen magazine has called “a sumptuous musical feast” in their performances. The eclectic duo has performed at London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC as well as at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas and Nashville’s International Bluegrass Music Association Fan Fest.

According to DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan, DCCA’s Coffee House Series presents first-rate entertainment in a cozy, intimate setting at a low ticket cost. “These shows offer an up-close and personal experience with extraordinarily talented artists who love doing what they were born to do,”
