Long Time Courting in Concert
Don't miss Long Time Courting in concert here at St. Lawrence Arts Oct. 29th at 7:30pm! Tickets $12 Advance and $15 at Door.

Long Time Courting celebrates the release of their debut album Alternate Routes! Long Time Courting's first studio recording sparkles with creativity and fresh energy. Drawing from the deep well of traditional music, the all-women quartet finds new and satisfying ways of making jigs, reels, and old ballads accessible to the modern folk audience. Though the majority of the material on the album is Irish in origin, the album also features material from Sweden, England, and America, as well as a handful of originals.

"Listening to Long Time Courting, I'm struck by their precision and creativity this is not a "girl band" for the sake of being so. These women are true masters of their craft." -Aoife O'Donovan, vocalist and songwriter, Crooked Still

Take four individually accomplished traditional musicians and singers with fresh attitudes. Combine them, and you have the rich, soaring four-part vocal arrangements and high energy dance tunes that are Long Time Courting. Bringing together the talents of Sarah Blair on fiddle/vocals, Liz Simmons on guitar/vocals, Shannon Heaton on flute/vocals, and Ariel Friedman on cello/vocals, this Boston-based band shares a love of traditional Irish, Scottish and American folk music as well as contemporary material. They bring elements of these various genres to their repertoire in a way that is seamlessly innovative, inventively arranged, and skillfully rendered.
