In their widely expressive and conversational style of playing, David Greenberg and Chris Norman weave together a foundation of Scottish and Baroque music, to which they add elements of Canadian Maritime and Cape Breton music. Virtuosic skill and engaging charisma
Norman's flute playing can be heard featured in the Oscar winning soundtrack of Titanic as well as other films including Stone of Destiny and Soldier. His solo CD releases have received unanimous praise from critics and audiences alike. His debut Man With the Wooden Flute made the Billboard crossover charts for 12 weeks. Since that time Norman has collaborated, toured and recorded with some of today's most seminal artists in the genres of early music and traditional folk music.
David Greenberg taught himself folk fiddle tunes by ear as a young child growing up in Maryland. He learned conventional classical violin and he studied baroque violin with Stanley Ritchie at Indiana University's Early Music Institute. David performed and recorded with Tafelmusik while developing a specialty in Scottish baroque-folk music with his group Puirt A Baroque. He has immersed himself in Cape Breton traditional music, co-authoring with his wife the DunGreen Collection, a treatise on Cape Breton fiddle music.
Two of the most imaginative and dynamic performers in traditional and early music join forces to present a program that runs the gamut from baroque, traditional and original music incorporating flutes, violins, pipes, keyboards, and voice.
