Event

Colleen Raney
Singer Colleen Raney has been referred to as "among the best in her genre," (Irish Music Magazine) and "one of Americas best traditional singers" (Tradconnect). This comes as little surprise given her dedication to the craft of performing and preserving the vibrant song tradition of Ireland. Raney is compelled by the beauty of traditional Irish songs and has committed herself to honoring the music not just with her voice, but in her tireless research of the origins, history, and story behind each piece before singing a single note.

Her ability to convey this love of Irish music makes every performance a captivating experience, no matter the setting. Raney sings with an enchanting yet unaffected style allowing the listener to enjoy her selection of songs whether they are familiar or more obscure.

Born into a family where Irish music and dance were part of the fabric of everyday life, learning songs from her older siblings was very much a part of Raney's formative years. Colleen began her musical career with her oldest brother Mark, who studied with legendary singer and song collector Joe Heaney. After attaining her MFA in Acting from the University of Washington, and working as a professional actor for a decade, Colleen dove back into the traditional music world with her first album Linnet in 2008. Her 2013 release Here This is Home is without question one of the finest works in recent years.

The Band:

Bethany Waickman is a guitarist based out of Portland, Maine. She accompanies some of the countrys finest players, be it at dance halls, pub sessions, or on the concert stage.  Bethany grew up in a musical family in the Adirondack Mountains of northern New York state.  She started piano at an early age and played traditional and classical music along with her fiddle- and cello-playing brothers. She discovered DADGAD guitar tuning while attending Meadowlark, a folk music camp in Maine. There she studied with Keith Murphy, a well-known composer, musician, and influential practitioner of DADGAD. The modified tuning offers unique harmonies and rich drones well suited to supporting traditional music and to the driving, rhythmic playing for which Bethany is known.

Ryan Davidson is known for his powerful vocals and soulful style of folk storytelling.  Raised in Northern California, Ryan began touring the US whilst still in high school.  After a decade on the road playing rock-n-roll, he studied voice and jazz at the Bob Cole Conservatory in Long Beach, California. Shortly after he was accepted into the Irish World Academy of Music & Dance in Limerick, Ireland where he studied the Irish Bouzouki and received an MA in Ethnomusicology.  Since returning home after two years of living and playing traditional music in the West of Ireland, Ryan has been utilizing his extensive background to tirelessly write, play, tour and collaborate with numerous songwriters and traditional artists.
