Talented! Rachel Eckroth opening for Rufus Wainwright at the Vic Theatre (November 20, 2018)

Surrounded by all the instruments for Rufus Wainwright’s set, Rachel Eckroth stands at her keyboard and synthesizer. As soon as she starts singing, it’s evident she has talent. Her voice is full of depth and sounds excellent tonight at the Vic Theatre. Her keyboard playing is also beautiful along with the prerecorded bass she has playing. It all adds up to a very full sound, despite her being the only one on stage.

To introduce one of her songs, she says she wrote it about a guy she has just started dating. She then relates that she is going to marry this man, in three days! The wedding is on Black Friday in fact!

After her set, she returns to play keyboards in Rufus Wainwright’s band. They go on to play until 11:30pm. That makes it three and half hours of stage time for her with only 2 short breaks!

Catch Rachel Eckroth on tour now!
