Hanneke Cassel with Mike Block and Keith Murphy
Former U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion Hanneke Cassel will team up with contemporary cellist Mike Block and singer and guitarist Keith Murphy to bring you an evening of innovative Scottish and Irish fiddle music along with songs from Eastern Canada and Quebec. Hanneke is at the forefront of the contemporary fiddle scene in America, with passionate playing and new tunes that retain the soul and integrity of traditional music. Keith Murphy, fresh from this year's Acadian-themed Revels in Cambridge, is a native of Newfoundland known for his work with groups such as Nightingale and Childsplay. His sophisticated approach to ballads and fiddle tunes complements his grooving guitar style. Mike Block is a pioneering multi-style cellist and composer who has played with Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, Mark O'Connor's Appalachia Waltz Trio, and Darol Anger's Republic of Strings. Don't miss this stunning threesome.
