Noah Guthrie
McIntyre Hall Presents
Friday, October 16 | 7:30pm
Tickets: Reserved Seating $20, Box Seats $25Noah Guthrie has been taking the U.S. by storm to promote his debut album, Among the Wildest Things. Known for his unique covers on YouTube and his GLEE debut in Season 6, Noah is excited to give fans a taste of his own music.

Described as having a Pop/Americana sound with soul, 20 year old Noah Guthrie co-wrote the majority of the thirteen original songs on his debut album, Among The Wildest Things. He may have been called the male version of Adele or a mix of John Legend and Dave Matthews in the past, but as his social media username shows, there is only 1 Noah.

Peter Mawanga
& The Amaravi Movement
McIntyre Hall Presents
October 30 | 7:30pm
Tickets: Reserved Seating $22, Box Seats $30Peter Mawanga & the Amaravi Movement make music inspired by traditional Malawian rhythms and instruments. Mawanga, known in his country as “the voice of the voiceless”, has a strong social conscience and is not afraid to speak out on behalf of the poor.Writing in his vernacular Chichewa, his socially conscious lyrics speak for Malawi’s underprivileged. Fusing the rock outfit of drums-bass-guitar with the traditional sounds of Malawi’s marimba, thumb piano, and percussion, Mawanga’s Afro-vibes is a modern African sound that is intrinsically Malawian. Traditional melodies and rhythms form the backbone of original songs orchestrated with modern and traditional instruments.
