Catch the Fall Fiddle Festival Concert in the Recital Hall at Concord Community Music School on Saturday, October 28 at 7:30 PM! Five fiddlers from Scottish, Irish, and New England contradance tradition join forces, along with their musical collaborators, to present a toe-tapping evening concert of fiddle music open to the public. The Festival will feature guest faculty members Liz Knowles and Maura Shawn Scanlin, alongside three of New Hampshire’s own fiddling favorites, Audrey Budington, Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki, and Liz Faiella. They will be joined in the evening concert by their musical collaborators Kieran O’Hare on uilleann pipes, and Conor Hearn and Dan Faiella on guitar.
Irish fiddler Liz Knowles has credits that range from Riverdance to Broadway, and from Cherish the Ladies to the Martin Hayes Quartet. Scottish fiddling champion Maura Shawn Scanlin is making waves in the Celtic and acoustic music scenes, bringing together influences from Ireland, Scotland, and the American South, where she grew up.
From the Music School’s faculty, Audrey Budington is fluent in various fiddling styles and has performed with Rosanne Cash, Darol Anger, and Bruce Molsky among others; Jordan Tirrell-Wysocki is an award-winning Celtic fiddler and Emmy-nominated composer; and Liz Faiella, chair of the Folk, Jazz, and Popular Music Department at the Music School, brings flair and sensitivity to the traditional Celtic and New England folk music she loves.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased at the link below, by calling 603-228-1196 or in person at the Music School.
