(Cambridge, NY July 6, 2017) Hubbard Hall is pleased to host two fantastic musical events in the same week! For starters, the Hall is pleased to welcome the Men o’ War Balladeers who will performing a FREE CONCERT on Thursday, July 13 at 7pm.
The Men o’ War Balladeers is a new Traditional Music Band, based in Cambridge who perform Celtic and North American folk ballads. These five young men from Southern Washington County will take you on a journey from Frobisher Bay in the arctic to Old Maui, singing traditional music rife with rich harmony, both unaccompanied and with acoustic guitar. Let yourself be moved though song and enjoy the joyous, mournful, heart-wrenching, and uplifting shanties and labor songs from North America, Ireland, and beyond.
We also invite you to join us for some Broadway hits with a bit of a twist at our second Miscast Cabaret on Saturday, July 15 at 7pm on Hubbard Hall’s Main Stage to help raise money for our Arts Education Scholarship Fund! This program helps to ensure that no student at Hubbard Hall is ever turned away from a class based on financial limitations.
What’s a Miscast, you ask? It’s a chance for performers to sing songs that weren’t written for them! Featuring solo, duet, and group performances, this cabaret allows singers to swap age, gender, race, or even song-style giving them the opportunity to perform something fun and heartfelt that they ordinarily would not get to perform.
The event takes place one night only on July 15th at 7pm. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students and can be purchased online, through our Box Office at 518-677-2495, or at the door. Last year’s Miscast Cabaret was a smash success so make sure to reserve your tickets in advance!
