Neyla Pekarek Live from the Red Room
April 4, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT
Tune in to birnCORE on Thursday, April 4 at 8:00 p.m. for a live broadcast of Neyla Pekarek’s performance at the Red Room at Cafe 939.
Neyla Pekarek began playing cello at age nine in her native Denver, Colorado. After earning a degree in music education at the University of Northern Colorado, she answered an ad for a local folk band needing a cello player. The band was the Lumineers, and she soon became a core member, playing on their Grammy-nominated, self-titled debut and follow-up album, as well as joining them on tour.
She won the 2009 Rising Star championship with her quartet Vogue, members of Sweet Adelines International. Pekarek’s most recent album, Rattlesnake, was inspired by the life of Colorado pioneer woman Rattlesnake Kate, who was infamous in the 1920s for her death-defying encounter with a rattlesnake migration.
