Nashville based harpist and songwriter Timbre Cierpke will present a concert at Bethel University’s McKenzie campus on Thursday, April 20 at 7 p.m.
Timbre has been enchanting audiences throughout the US and Europe in growing numbers with her unique brand of harp-fronted chamber-folk. Her career has caught the attention of the music world and has led to her recording and collaborating with rock legends Jack White, Tom Jones, Ricky Skaggs, and rock bands such as mewithoutYou , O'Brother, Brooke Waggoner, and The Chariot. The pairing of Timbre's classically trained voice and harp skills with the dynamic sounds of her talented backing band have entranced crowd after crowd, often bringing complete stillness to crowded bars and festivals, silencing audiences of thousands. Timbre creates lush soundscapes that pull in listeners of every background. Timbre’s newest album Sun & Moon paints vividly with the light, the joy, the passion of modern music, and the darkness, depth, and richness of classical music. Furthermore, it shows that together, they can communicate beauty in greater depths than either can alone.
The concert, which will be in Odom Lecture Hall, is presented by Bethel’s Music Department and the Music Industry Studies Program.
