"The evening will feature a broad range of vocal performance ranging from indie folk to Sean Nós to American Appalachian. Scoth are a brand new indie alternative folk duo. They forge a sound all of their own that is also reminiscent of performers like Sufjan Stephens and Bon Iver.

Eoghan Ó Ceannabhain and Ultan O Brien’s 2021 duet recording “Solas an Lae” is one of the freshest and most innovative traditional music recordings released in many years. It is at once deeply rooted in Connemara Sean Nós singing style and traditional tune playing; while it is also contemporary in its feeling and presentation. They explore the melodies and songs with a rare freshness that pays homage to the the very roots of this music.

Sam Amidon is a singer, banjo player, fiddler and guitarist originally from Vermont who has been exploring the American folk song tradition for many years. He is also equally comfortable playing traditional Irish music on the fiddle. Sam will be performing songs that are drawn from various corners of American music. He will be accompanied by a string quartet under the direction of Kate Ellis. The arrangements are composed by New York composer Nico Muhly." - Martin Hayes
