String Theory

Ariana Kim, Tim Ball, Tom Hodgson & Rick Manning


Triphammer Arts welcomes you to our fourth Drive-In LIVE concert at the CRS Growers Farm! As before, cars will be parked in the field with empty spaces on both sides and in front and back. Please remain near your car throughout the hour-long, amplified concert. Lawn chairs will be available, but please feel free to bring your own.

Tickets will be available at the gate – there will be no advance sales. When you arrive, you will be directed to your socially distanced parking space in the large field below the barn. A masked attendant will come to your car to collect your suggested donation of $20 per car, payable by cash or check to Triphammer Arts. If you'd prefer to donate electronically, you can donate through PayPal or on Facebook at any time.
The gate opens at 6:00 pm.

ABOUT STRING THEORY: String Theory features violinist Ariana Kim, fiddler/guitarist Tim Ball, fiddler/mandolinist Rick Manning and guitarist Tom Hodgson performing an eclectic blend of fiddle tunes. We come from different musical traditions, but share a love of fiddle music. This performance will feature a wide variety of tunes, from Canada through New England and Texas, and South America along with a little solo Bach for good measure. We will play in solo, duo, trio and quartet configurations and feature a special guest or two. It’s been a while since we have played and it’s always an adventure performing our music. We are confident you will enjoy it as much as we do!
