The Gnomes fuse its dynamic folk-rock edge with original tunes and a wide-ranging repertoire that spans the globe  Celtic, Scandinavian, Eastern European, Asian, African, Caribbean, Klezmer, and Native American  bringing you a sound that will touch both your heart and your feet! They combine their varied and extensive musical backgrounds into arrangements that have been described as "exotic, fresh, and unique."

The Gnomes are celebrating their 10th year together.

Cathy Clasper Torch (violin/fiddle, erhu, piano, cello) has been playing, teaching, and performing in RI and New England for over 20 years. Cathy's passion for world music began early on, as part of her childhood was spent living in Asia (Burma/Myanmar and Hong Kong). Her violin/fiddle playing is influenced by her love of improvisation and harmony, and informed by jazz, classical and folk genres.

Phil Edmonds, (Irish whistles, button accordion) a native of Killaloe, Co. Clare, Ireland, learned to play the tin whistle in a place where he says, "The backyard was the fields."  The world music scene of the Providence area has had a big influence on Phil's music. Catch him some Friday nights sitting in with Zerui DePina's Cape Verde band at Club Tropical in Central Falls.

Peter Breen , an accomplished and versatile bass player and singer, began his musical journey as a Suzuki-method violinist at the age of four. Taking up guitar at age twelve and bass at fifteen, one of his career highlights includes working with the Wilson Blue and the Blue Roots Reggae Band, enjoying a four-year residence on the West- Indian island of St. Martin.

Mike Fischman (guitar, mandolin, banjo) has played in bluegrass, old timey, Irish, rock 'n roll, blues, acoustic folk, Dixieland, swing, jazz, country and western bands. He has been DJ-ing on WRIU's Bluegrass Breakdown for the past 20 years.

Matt Niebels adds a musical spice rack of flavors to the group as well as a contagious energy and groove combining his foundation in jazz and rock drumming, a passion for world music and a degree in classical percussion.
