Event Description:
Join us for fantastic string music with Celtic Fiddle Festival on Thursday, April 27th at 7:00PM! “…each of those fiddlers is not only a master musician but is also a master performer. They have stage craft to burn… If you can get to see them live you are in for a treat…” –Sean Laffey, Irish Music Magazine Celtic Fiddle Festival demonstrates and celebrates the rich tapestry of Celtic music through the distinct regional stylings of the band members. The band features Kevin Burke, Christian Lemaitre, and Charlie McKerron on fiddle and Nicholas Quemener on guitar. When the band first began touring, each concert began with a short solo performance from each fiddler to demonstrate the uniqueness of the individual styles of music. The musicians would then all play together to show how these different styles were indeed very closely connected. Celtic Fiddle Festival has toured through the United States and Europe, releasing several albums. In 2013, they rejoiced in 20 years of unique, compelling, and powerful music with their sixth recording, Live in Brittany. Featuring all newly-recorded selections, the album represents the rich cultural traditions of Ireland, Quebec, and Brittany, with performances that include freshly composed pieces as well as tunes whose origin is beyond living memory.
