JUNEAU - Guitarist Eric Tingstad and oboist Nancy Rumbel, instrumental musicians who won a 2002 Grammy for their 14th album, "Acoustic Garden," will play at 8 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 1, at Chapel by the Lake.
The show, Tingstad and Rumbel's sixth in Juneau, is sponsored by the University of Alaska Southeast Student Activities. Tickets - $20 in advance, $22 at the door and $12 for UAS students and alumni - are available at Hearthside Books and the UAS Bookstore.
Tingstad and Rumbel met in 1984 and have been playing together for 17 years. They've played at concert halls such as Carnegie, Benaroya and Berklee, and gardens such as St. Louis Botanical Garden, California's Sherman Garden, Bellevue Botanical Garden, Bloedell Reserve, Washington Park Arboretum, Iowa's Seed Saver Barn and The Cibolo Nature Center in Boerne, Texas. Both did performance residencies at Yosemite and Yellowstone national parks, and both are master gardeners with extensive landscapes at their East Seattle homes.
"Eric Tingstad and Nancy Rumbel are American as apple pie, with a taste of eclecticism that delights the palette, and makes you think: What apple tree produces such bounty and savor?" wrote Richard Mauro in Sacred World Music.
