Acoustic Eidolon to Perform

Acoustic Eidolon

Idaho State University's "A Season of Note" fine arts series will present Acoustic Eidolon, an internationally acclaimed musical duo, at 7:30 p.m. April 11 in the Joseph C. and Cheryl H. Jensen Grand Concert Hall in the L.E. and Thelma E. Stephens Performing Arts Center.

Joe Scott and Hannah Alkire joined forces on the music scene on 1998. This confluence of two gifted musicians has resulted in Acoustic Eidolon. Scott performs on a unique, custom-designed double-neck guitjo, a banjo/guitar combination created by Scott and deemed by USA Today as "a beautiful harp-like sounding nothing they've never heard before."

Alkire was classically trained on the cello. Her inquisitive nature has prompted her to take her cello playing into uncharted territories, risky moves that have continued her reputation as a tour-de-force in cello performance. Their passionate live music and thoughtful, humorous rapport stand them above the crowd, engaging their audiences in spontaneous applause, laughter and appreciation.
