Ari & Mia: Sister Folk Duo at Cozy Concerts
Strikingly beautiful, distinctive and exhilarating, with expressive vocals that will find a way into hearts and minds (No Depression), Boston based folk duo Ari & Mia reference the styles of Southern and Northeastern fiddle music and the early American songbook to create a realm where their own compositions cross paths with older traditions. Both award-winning songwriters, their stylish and sophisticated music honors the sounds of Appalachian cottages, rural dance floors, and urban concert halls. Combine this with their innovative approach to songwriting and the result is a captivating sound.

Saturday, November 11, 7:30 pm
Niebyl-Proctor Marxist Library
6501 Telegraph Ave., Oakland (two blocks south of Berkeley)

Ari & Mia are not creating a new music; they are taking it to another level and exploring areas that have not been attempted in decades. Their all-acoustic, pure and honest approach has significance. Treading the edges of traditional folk in a more faithful manner, they share the lyrical wizardry of 70s bands Steeleye Span, Tir-na-Nog, and the Incredible String Band, with searing harmony as good as The Beach Boys. The sisters sing in unison like two violins, continues No Depression on the review of their most recent release, Out of Stone.

Together, the sisters have toured all across the U.S and Australia and are both graduates of New England Conservatory's cutting edge Contemporary Improvisation department. Their two previous albums, Land on Shore and Unruly Heart, ranked high on the national folk radio charts.

Ariel Friedman is a multi-genre cellist, composer, and educator. A winner of ASTAs Alternative Styles Award, she is steeped both in the music of American roots traditions and a broad range of classical repertoire. She has performed with many folk-based groups including Scottish National Fiddle champion Hanneke Cassel, the Sail Away Ladies, Childsplay, and the BSOs Classical Tangent. An advocate of new music and a composer herself, she is the founding cellist of Cardamom Quartet and performs with the Boston Modern Orchestra Project. Ariel graduated from Northwestern University in 2008 and received a Masters of Music from New England Conservatory in 2011.

Mia Friedman is a virtuosic fiddler and singer as well as a composer, performer, and educator. Her song Across the Water won the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the folk category, and she was the 2006 New Hampshire Highland Games Scottish Fiddle Champion. She is largely influenced by American roots music and old-time Appalachian traditions, and blends this with contemporary music in her compositions.
