Dick Hensold is the leading Northumbrian smallpiper in North America. He returns to Caltech following his debut with Andrea Beaton. He will be bringing another accompanist for this show, soon to be announced. For the past 20 years, he has performed and taught in England, Scotland, Japan, Canada, and across the United States. Based in St. Paul, Minnesota, he is a full-time musician, passionately presenting the traditional music of Scotland, Cape Breton Island, and Northumberland, as well as Nordic folk music, early music, and traditional Cambodian music. He is also an active composer, studio musician and theater musician, and his solo CD, Big Music for Northumbrian Smallpipes was released in 2007. He performs and records in various combinations with artists from around the world.

The show will be in Beckman Institute Auditorium at 400 South Wilson Avenue. On concert night, free parking is available in the lot behind Beckman Auditorium (the large round, white building at the end of Michigan Avenue), but this lot may fill up, especially if there are other events on campus that night. You can always find parking for our shows in the two parking structures on Wilson Avenue, just south of Del Mar Boulevard. On weekends and after 6:00 PM, you may park in spaces that have individual names. Restrictive wording at the structures refers to weekdays before 6:00 PM. There is also parking available on Wilson Avenue itself. Beckman Institute is on the other side of the large lawn (currently a staging area for nearby construction) on Wilson Avenue, on the first floor of the left portion of the building. If you get to the fountain and pools that point toward the white, round, Beckman Auditorium, you have gone too far. See this map. Beckman Institute is building #74 and the parking structures are #123 and #124.
