Call it a happy accident of 19th-century design, but the Depot has terrific acoustics. Voices carry and fill the room without ever crowding it (though the whoosh of a passing train occasionally joins the chorus). Maybe that’s how we attract national touring artists as well as talented local performers.

 
 

Depot folk: youth in a roman field

POSTPONED

SATURDAY'S PERFORMANCE BY YOUTH IN A ROMAN FIELD HAS BEEN POSTPONED. A NEW DATE WILL BE SCHEDULED AND ANNOUNCED SOON. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

Our new workshop-and-performance music series, Depot Folk, returns Jan. 13 with the New York City-based band Youth in a Roman Field. Led by Claire Wellin, the group describes itself as a "bastardized string quartet-meets folk band-meets jazz combo." It's an apt characterization. Expect violins, ukulele, guitar, piano, bass and lots of gorgeous singing. Wellin will lead a vocal harmony workshop in the afternoon, prior to the show.
