Admission is $10 and tickets are available for advance purchase at www.pncreativeartscenter.org/concertseries or at the door.
Born in New York City, Dick Solberg was trained classically on the piano and the violin, but when he encountered "fiddling" in old-timey, bluegrass, Celtic and Cajun styles, he was hooked. His professional career started in 1976, when he fiddled on the streets in places such as Ann Arbor, Michigan; Provincetown, Cape Cod; and Coconut Grove, Florida. He has performed at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland, on the Great Wall of China and at the American University in Cairo. Dick continues to play across America and in the Caribbean, where he has spent 34 winter seasons in St. Thomas.
This show is part of the Nigra Arts Center’s 2016 concert series. The concert series features local performers in a wide variety of genres and styles. Visit www.pncreativeartscenter.org/concertseries to see the full lineup.
