Violinist David Klinkenberg is the kind of versatile crossover artist that makes genre distinctions completely unnecessary. The immensely talented instrumentalist is adept at everything from classical music to Celtic tunes and bluegrass — as his live performances can attest. Klinkenberg has reached audiences from such high-profile platforms as PBS and Lincoln Center, and now the Portland, Oregon, musician will take the stage at Downstairs Cabaret Theatre.
David Klinkenberg performs Thursday, October 19, at 7 p.m.; Friday, October 20, and Saturday, October 21, at 8 p.m.; and Sunday, October 22, at 3 p.m. Downstairs Cabaret Theatre, 3450 Winton Place. $25 (discounts available for members, groups, seniors, military personnel, and students). 325-4370; downstairscabaret.com.
