Two musicians to share Port Townsend stage tonight

Nancy Rumbel, a Grammy-award winning multi-instrumentalist, will perform with cellist and vocalist Jami Sieber at the Madrona MindBody Institute.

PORT TOWNSEND — Nancy Rumbel, a Grammy-award winning multi-instrumentalist, this evening will share the stage with cellist and vocalist Jami Sieber during a concert at the Madrona MindBody Institute, 310 Fort Worden Way.

The concert begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 at the door.

This performance is part of a multi-state tour of the Pacific Northwest.

“We are both excited about [the] tour and [this] show in particular,” Sieber told Peninsula Daily News.

Rumbel is a professional composer, recording artist, performer and teacher, according to her biography.

Her primary instruments are oboe, English horn, double wooden ocarinas, clay ocarinas and keyboards.

She is known for her collaborations with Eric Tingstad as part of the Tingstad and Rumbel duo, which formed in 1985 and received a Grammy for their album, “Acoustic Garden,” in February 2003.

Rumbel also has recorded on releases with Susan Osborn, Cris Williamson, Lydia McCauley and most recently Wind Music of Taiwan.

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, she toured and recorded extensively with the Paul Winter Consort.

Rumbel has released a total of 18 albums during her musical career.

Sieber performs on both the acoustic and electric cello, and has been performing in Port Townsend since the 1980s — first with her band, Rumors of the Big Wave, then as a solo artist for the past four years, according to her biography.

Sieber has transcended the traditional limitations of cello by using looping devices and electronics to create sounds never before associated with the instrument, according to her website, transforming it into an orchestra all its own.

Since launching her solo career in 1994, Sieber has performed her original compositions around the world — collaborating with a spectrum of dancers, actors, poets, visual artists, improvisers, vocalists and instrumentalists across the globe.

Her compositions have been heard on the PBS series “American Masters” and the video game “Braid,” according to her biography.

She has independently produced seven albums on her own label, Out Front Music.
