The Melton Brothers are widely acknowledged as regional music legends from their debut vinyl album "Livin' In The City" through their current CD "Live At The Flash," focusing on adventurous song interpretations and originals. Rhythm comes first with the brothers, and the two are so tight on bass, keyboards, and vocals that it is thrilling to see, hear, feel, and move to what they and exemplary musicians Fred Berman, touring drummer for Amos Lee, and Bob Beach, renowned Philadelphia harmonica player, bring to the show. The Melton Brothers Band is a groovin' stew of styles including roots-rock, folk-rock, blues, jazz, New Orleans funk, and island beats, all served up in a sizzling and sumptuous musical conversation with everyone in attendance.

Gerald Dickens Performs!


Thursday, August 4, 2016, 1:00 & 6:00
Copeland Lecture Hall


Gerald Charles Dickens, great-great-grandson of the author Charles Dickens, returns by popular demand after his sold-out performances at Winterthur of A Christmas Carol. His fascination with the life and works of Charles Dickens led him to write and direct further one-man shows. This performance features two, one-hour shows—A Child’s Journey with Dickens and Mr. Dickens Is Coming!. There is one intermission and a meet and greet follows the performance. $10 per Member. $15 per nonmember. $8 for children 12 and under. To purchase tickets, please call 800.448.3883.

A Child’s Journey with Dickens
When Dickens returned to America in 1868 he was old, in poor health, and in constant fear for his safety following a narrow escape in a rail disaster a few years earlier. At the heart of this show is a young girl’s, Kate Douglas Wiggin, memory of meeting the great man on a train journey in New England, and Dickens’s enchantment with both her boldness and innocence. An enchanting tale for all ages!


Mr. Dickens Is Coming!

This entertaining, one-man show presents a light-hearted and varied look at the life of Charles Dickens as seen through the lens of his colorful characters, diary extracts, and observations by the people who knew him. Gerald Charles Dickens, great-great-grandson of the author, adds in a few of his own 21st- century views, painting a masterly picture of his famous ancestor with words, gestures, and feelings.

Gerald Dickens will return Thursday, December 8, for performances of the ever-popular A Christmas Carol.
