Matt and Shannon Heaton WITH Natalie Haas and Yann Falquet
Another great night of diverse music on tap with this double bill.
Matt and Shannon are multi instrumentalists and have built a terrific following - for good reason - around the country since moving to Boston some 15 years ago.
With engaging stage presence and masterfully-crafted music,they offer well-travelled Irish music from the heart. Steeped in sessions in County Clare and brewed in the acoustic music scenes of Chicago and Boston, their flute/guitar/bouzouki instrumentals and sweet husband-and-wife harmony singing draw deeply from the Irish tradition.

Natalie Haas is one of the most sought after cellists playing traditional music today. She and Scottish fiddler Alasdair Fraser have toured as a duo for over 15 years, wowing audiences at festivals and concerts worldwide with their unique sound. Natalie got married a few years ago to Yann Falquet who is one of the trio of Quebecois musicians known as Genticorum. Take a look below and you'll see what kind of music they are playing these days. Don't miss out on this eclectic evening.
