David Brewer & Rebecca Lomnicky
David Brewer of the popular Celtic band Molly's Revenge, & Glenfiddich International Fiddle Champion Rebecca Lomnicky will be performing captivating Scottish music which bridges the gap between the fiddle & bagpipe music of Scotland - two worlds united.

Rebecca Lomnicky and David Brewer each have spent copious amounts of time delving into the traditions of their respective instruments, living and studying in the highlands of Scotland, and have forged their duo in the spirit of merging these two similar but very different worlds to create a new seamless sound which is both kinetic, and full of passion.

David Brewer is a multi-instrumentalist who has toured with the Scottish super-group The Old Blind Dogs, and with Molly's Revenge across the US, the UK, Canada, China, Australia, has been a special guest of the six-time Grammy winning group The Chieftains, and was a key musician for the sound track of the PBS documentary, Andrew Jackson, Good, Evil, and the Presidency. David, who is known for being animated and engaging on stage, accompanies Rebecca's award winning fiddling with guitar, Irish penny-whistle, and bodhran frame-drum, but primarily the Scottish bagpipes, on which he is unarguably one of the most energetic and charismatic performers of the instrument in the world today.

Rebecca Lomnicky began playing classical violin and piano at age five, discovered Scottish fiddle music a few short years later, and in 2005 won the Junior Division of the U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Competition. Following that victory, she recorded her first CD, The Call, praised by "Dirty Linen" magazine as "technically masterful, and wonderfully melodic." In 2009, Rebecca won the 20th Annual Glenfiddich International Scottish Fiddle Championship held at Blair Castle, Blair Atholl, Scotland. The invitation only championship  seen as the Grammys of the fiddling world- is widely regarded as the most prestigious in Scottish fiddle. She has performed in Scotland, Ireland, Italy, China, and across the US, has been featured on the BBC radio show, Take the Floor, and in 2009, recorded her second CD, Inspired, with David Brewer. Presently, Rebecca is studying music and anthropology at Cornell University, & the University of Edinburgh, and the duo tours the Celtic festival circuit between semesters.

Whether intricately arranged toe-tapping dance tunes, or soaring majestic airs catch their show and you'll leave energized.
