Irish Trad Double Show
August 22 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm$17 – $20
Alison Perkins and Nicolas Brown are one of the brightest Irish music duos in America. They have been playing music on the uilleann pipes, flute and fiddle together for close to a decade. Since the recent release of their debut album, All Covered With Moss they have been bringing their close musical partnership to the stage. As individuals, they have performed at festivals and concerts across the North America. Together, they research forgotten settings of obscure tunes and introduce them to audiences with a style that is at once unapologetically old fashioned, fresh, vibrant and spirited. Following the release of their CD, they have brought their signature sound to audiences on tours throughout the country.
For years David McKindley-Ward (banjo, guitar, voice) and Marty Frye (flute, fiddle) have been steeping themselves in the D.C.-Baltimore area’s lauded Irish music community, like a good pot of Barry’s tea. Through their tuneful playing and melodious singing Marty and David seek to cultivate a musical sensitivity that does justice to the masterful touch of the old players, while being honest to their own creative instincts. They will be joined by St. Louis’ own Eimear Arkins on fiddle!
