June 21 - Special Solstice Concert - Arise and Go 7:00 pm


FRIDAY, July 15 at 7:00pm; Drive-In Stage
String Fever with Ariana Kim, Rick Manning, Dave Davies, Tom Hodgson

ABOUT STRING THEORY: String Theory features violinist Ariana Kim, fiddler/mandolinist Rick Manning and guitarists Dave Davies and 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. We are confident you will enjoy it as much as we do!

Noted by The New York Times for giving "the proceedings an invaluable central thread of integrity and stylishness" and having "played with soulful flair," violinist Ariana Kim made her New York recital debut at Carnegie's Weill Hall during her graduate studies at Juilliard and is now a tenured professor at Cornell University. Together with the Aizuri Quartet, she was awarded the Gold Medal at the 2017 Osaka International Competition, the 2018 M-Prize, and a 2019 GRAMMY nomination for their debut album, Blueprinting. At 16, Ariana made her debut with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and at 24 was appointed acting concertmaster of the Louisiana Philharmonic in New Orleans and has since become one of the most respected artists of her generation. Ariana received her masters and doctorate from the Juilliard School under the tutelage of the late Robert Mann, her undergraduate degree from the San Francisco Conservatory with Ian Swensen and Camilla Wicks, and usually co-resides in Ithaca and New York City. During the 2021 calendar year, she lived and worked in Seoul, South Korea studying ancient traditional Korean instruments and music, teaching as a visiting artist at Seoul National University, and rock-climbing many mountains.

Rick Manning plays fiddle and mandolin and has performed with Paris Texas, the Falling Waters Trio (Grietzer-Hodgson-Manning), the Contradictions and, formerly, Cornerstone in the Ithaca and Finger Lakes area. Rick has recorded five CD’s – three in Nashville with Cornerstone in the 1990’s and most recently two with the Falling Waters Trio. He is also the founder and director of both the Winter Village and Falling Waters Music Camps, both held during January at La Tourelle.
