Posted July 28, 2020:
This summer, we present a weekly series of videos featuring the artists you know and love from past Shakespeare Festival seasons. In this episode, composer, musician and actor Rinde Eckert reprises his performance as Feste singing Rinde’s evocative original composition of “Come Away, Death” from CSF’s 2019 production of “Twelfth Night.”

Eckert is a maker of music and theatre. He has composed and performed his own music/theatre pieces since his 1992 homage to Dante, “The Gardening of Thomas D.” In 2011, Eckert won a Grammy Award for Best Small Ensemble Performance as a collaborator on the album “Lonely Motel” (Cedille Records). Staged works for solo performer include “Becoming…Unusual: The Education of an Eclectic;” three one-act plays: “An Idiot Divine,” “Romeo Sierra Tango,” and “Quit This House.” In 2017 Eckert opened the inaugural season of Renée Fleming’s Voices Series at the Kennedy Center where he premiered his recital “Rin: Tales from the Life of a Troubadour.”
