Double Bill: Matt and Shannon Heaton (CD Release), with Laurel Martin, Mark Roberts, and Kieran Jordan.
Boston-based Matt & Shannon Heaton have become know for their distinctive approach to traditional and updated Irish music with voices, Irish flute, accordion, guitar and bouzouki. Winner of Live Ireland's "Trad Fusion Album of the Year," they move seamlessly from harmony singing to driving flute tunes, to lush guitar lines, creating a big, layered, modern sound. This performance will mark the triumphant release of a brand new CD so should feature a lot of musical friends and surprises as well.
Sharing the bill will be a brand new trio recently formed that features the fiddling of LaurelMartin, the diverse talents of Mark Roberts and the percussive footwork and old Irish style dancing of Kieran Jordan.
What a celebration of the vibrant trad scene in Boston this show promises to be!!
