The new Executive Director of San Diego Musical Theatre directs, choreographs, acts, sings, and creates
Jeff Smith 6 p.m., Oct. 8
The Jeff Pekarek Trio will perform excerpts from Panamerican Shanty, a radio show which features music from circa 1915 and a narrative that follows a legendary piece of whale-tooth scrimshaw as it changes hands on the eve of the First World War. Sea shanties, milongas, polkas, and original pieces are woven into a story set in San Diego and the Pacific Rim.
Jeff Pekarek has performed extensively with local guitarists Peter Pupping, Fred Benedetti, and the late Brian Baynes, as well as bluegrass fiddler Richard Greene. He arranges music for Yale Strom and Caprice Srings, besides performing with these groups.
Seating is limited.
