Two of the world’s most celebrated fiddlers, Natalie MacMaster and Donnell Leahy, will bring their show, “Masters of the Fiddle,” to Missouri University of Science and Technology on Saturday, Oct. 14.
A part of Missouri S&T’s Campus Performing Arts Series, the performance will be held at 7:30 p.m. in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall on the university campus, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
Tickets are $38 for adults and $28 for youth. The first 75 tickets for Missouri S&T students are free; additional student tickets are $10. Tickets are available online or from the Leach Theatre Box Office. Box office hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Call 573-341-4219 for more information.
The married couple’s performance features fiddle-driven music, dance and song, combining French, Celtic, American bluegrass, and even some Cajun styles. They are joined by two acclaimed pianists, Mac Morin and Erin Leahy.
“This is very much a family affair,” says MacMaster. “It’s always a treat for the two of us to share our passion in life, which is music, and go out on tour together.”
The performance is sponsored in part by public radio station KMST. Additional funding for the Missouri S&T Campus Performing Arts Series is provided by the Missouri S&T Endowment for the Performing Arts.
In the event that tickets remain for these performances, Leach Theatre will offer discounted tickets through its “Back Row Club.” Seats in the last row of the theater are sold one hour before each event for $10 each.
