The Music Behind “An Evening with Poe”
Live musical accompaniment for “An Evening with Poe” is provided by The Tamerlane Trio, an ensemble of local musicians formed specifically for “An Evening with Poe.” Amber Estes Thieneman (vocals), Mick Sullivan (guitar, banjo, mandolin and vocals) and Rob Collier (bass and vocals) have collaborated and performed independently with groups such as Sandpaper Dolls, Fire the Saddle, Liberation Prophecy and Squeeze-bot, among others.
The scores pull largely from music played in the Appalachia region during Poe’s time. Having grown up in Richmond, Va., Poe certainly would have heard the music of slaves, the strings of a banjo, as well as the popular parlor music of the day. The Tamerlane Trio plays folk songs carried from the British Isles, music composed by personal acquaintances of Poe and some of the day’s most popular songs – many of which are now largely forgotten.
Crafting an unusual repertoire of 19th century music specifically for “An Evening with Poe,” the trio has has written an original score for some of the evening’s onstage action.

In 1954, Rosemary Clooney, along with Bing Crosby, Vera Ellen and Danny Kay, starred in the celebrated movie, White Christmas, which became a holiday tradition in and of itself for fans throughout the country and around the world. By that time, the Maysville, KY native was already well on her way to an unprecedented singing, recording and acting career that ultimately spanned 39 hit songs, 62 albums and more than a dozen films over 54 years.
As a tribute to Kentucky’s shining star, Eve Theatre Company presents Rosemary and Time, a cabaret-style look back at the hit songs and warm stories that made Rosemary who she was. The one-hour production will be staged at the Frazier Museum as part of its White Christmas exhibit. Cash bar available during evening performances. Tickets are $20 members, $22 non-members.
