Latrobe, PA: Next Tuesday, October 7, Latrobe Art Center will be hosting String Tyme, a local bluegrass musical duo, to the gallery for their weekly Open Mic Nights. On “Tunes-day” Tuesday nights, local musicians display their talents for guests in the community who come to appreciate the art of music and the unique flair of each performer.
This upcoming event is particularly exciting with the welcoming of Amy Clarke and Jeff Bell, a musical bluegrass duo whose shows consistently receive overwhelmingly positive responses from the crowds and venues at which they play. When they met, they discovered Amy’s heartfelt vocals and lyrical autoharp playing meshed perfectly with Jeff’s guitar, banjo, and ukelele rhythms. Their recognizable connection carries into their music, where despite their considerations of performing independently, decided their talents and diverse musical backgrounds would be the perfect fit for entertaining any crowd. Ever since they became a duo and formed String Tyme, their well-received performances from a variety of ages and audiences prove their strong relationship serves as an inspiration that can be felt through their satisfying melodies.
As a membership art gallery, Latrobe Art Center brings in local artists to display their works and unite the community in spreading art appreciation. Open Mic Nights at the center are a means to go beyond the visual arts by promoting the performing arts and engaging everyone to explore their creative talents. Everyone in the neighborhood is welcome to attend this event which will begin at 5:00 P.M. on Tuesday, October 7 at the gallery on Ligonier Street, with String Tyme beginning performance at 7:00 P.M. Dinner from the Neighborhood Café will also be available for purchase. Latrobe Art Center encourages everyone to share in the creative process by participating in Open Mic Nights every Tuesday and welcoming String Tyme in their next upcoming performance.
