The Longmont Public Library will host Colorado-based band, Acoustic Eidolon, during an in-person concert on Thursday, Sept. 23, from 7 to 8 pm in the Library’s Meeting Rooms, 409 4th Ave.

Acoustic Eidolon, featuring Joe Scott on double neck guitjo and Hannah Alkire on cello, have graced stages throughout the U.S., Europe, Australia and Canada. With 11 CDs and a DVD to their credit, these masterful artists continue to captivate audiences throughout the world with their signature “new acoustic” sound and boundless possibilities in blending Celtic, Americana, World & Flamenco musical influences, something that Dirty Linen Magazine praises as “a sumptuous musical feast.”

Their original sound is created by the mixing of their diverse musical backgrounds and their unusual instrumentation including the one-of-a-kind double neck guitjo, an instrument of Scott’s own design praised by USA Today as a “beautiful harp-like sounding instrument … like nothing we’ve ever heard before.”

The double-neck guitjo has 14 strings and Scott has developed his own style and technique, playing both necks simultaneously. Classically-trained cellist Alkire studied with G. Magyar of the Hungarian String Quartet and is recognized internationally for her stunning tone and emotional, impeccable playing and for taking the cello places it’s never been before.

This concert is free, registration is required through Eventbrite. Fifty seats are available for this intimate event. View full event details at or call the Library at 303-651-8470.
