Caltech - Keith Spalding Building
If you’re planning to hear Scottish troubadours Jim and Susie Malcolm at Caltech this Saturday evening, Jan. 27, you can postpone celebrating the 265th birthday of poet Robert Burns this Thursday.
The Malcolms fervently sing lyrics by Burns, Scotland’s national poet. You’ll also hear their own compositions and other songs old and new. Jim Malcolm accompanies the duo’s strong voices and vibrant harmonies with well-honed guitar playing and a harmonica style that can sound like a concertina. Besides bringing new verve to old songs, the Malcolms showcase some top-notch modern songwriting.
Some tickets are still available for this 8:00 pm concert in the 200-seat Beckman Institute Auditorium. You can get them in advance at this link or from the Caltech Ticket Office. Tickets for the Jan. 27 concert are $25 each, or $10 for Caltech students and anyone age 16 or younger. A $4 service charge per ticket applies to orders online and by phone (626-395-4652). The phone number is for the Caltech Ticket Office, which is open from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm Tuesdays through Fridays. There’s no service charge for tickets purchased in person at the ticket office during those hours.
The concert will be held in the Keith Spalding Building at Caltech. If any tickets are still available Saturday evening, they will be for sale at the door with no service charge, for purchase only with cash or check. Our most recent concert sold out, so some people who arrived intending to buy tickets at the door could not attend. A few dozen tickets for the Malcolms’ concert are still available as of today. We recommend purchasing online.
Free parking is available after 6:00 pm in lots to the east and west of Michigan Avenue a block south of Del Mar Boulevard, and also in two parking structures on the west side of Wilson in the first block south of Del Mar. A different event will be in the Beckman Auditorium the same evening, so the closer lots might fill early.
Because of that concurrent event, the ticket office will be handling online sales of tickets for the Malcolms’ concert until about 5:00 pm on Saturday. Usually, the online sales cut-off is on Friday before our Saturday evening concerts at Caltech. If you’ve waited until the last minute to get tickets and want to check whether any will be available at the door on Saturday evening, you may call Rex at 626-616-4559.
