Kansas City native, Mark Yonally, is the founder and Artistic Director of Chicago Tap Theatre. They will bring their original production Unleash the Beats to Yardley Hall on October 13. It’s a celebration of the best in tap dance, from historical pieces of the past to the innovative and compelling original work for which Chicago Tap Theatre is known.

With a reverence for their roots combined with a creative, contemporary edge, Rum Ragged (October 14) has quickly become known as the finest performers of their great living musical tradition. Rum Ragged takes a bold approach to the distinct folk music of their home, Newfoundland. Boasting bouzouki, fiddle, bodhran, banjo, guitar and button accordion, these new champions of East Coast music enliven and enlighten audiences with their signature brand of Newfoundland folk.
