SoundCheck relaxes with cold chocolate – Knox County VillageSoup
CAMDEN – Boston-based duo Cold Chocolate return to the Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St., for a SoundCheck concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 22. The one set concert is sponsored by Hawthorn Inn.
Ethan Robbins (guitar) and Ariel Bernstein (percussion) merge folk, funk and bluegrass in a bluesy, roots, even jazzy version of the Americana, animated by a captivating writing. Punctuated by tight harmonies and skillful playing, Cold Chocolate has been recognized for its original music and high-energy performances.
Robbins and Bernstein both have a classical background to underpin their free-spirited, free-wheeling musicality. They filled the Opera Blue CafÃ© on Valentine’s Day 2020; and released their third full length album, âDown The Line,â later that year.
Tickets cost $ 10 and advance purchase is encouraged through camdenoperahouse.com and 236-3154. Opera’s self-service ticketing software ensures distance between the two rows, as well as a few seats on either side of each party’s reservation, for comfortable spacing. Masks are compulsory in the building.
The doors will open at 7 p.m. SoundCheck is also streamed live on the COH Facebook page. For more information and to donate to the Community Arts Fund that makes it all possible, visit camdenoperahouse.com.
