JOHN WHELAN, LOW LILY and KATIE MCNALLY
Seven-time All-Ireland accordion champion and Narada recording artist John Whelan teams up with roots band Low Lily and Scottish-style fiddler Katie McNally for a spectacular holiday mini-fest of traditional and original music from Ireland, Scotland and America.  Alongside uptempo jigs and reels will be lesser-known Christmas carols and wintry classics, featuring two fiddles, accordion, guitars, mandolin, double bass and lush, layered vocals.  This diverse and energetic show brings the generations together for a fresh new take on roots music from both sides of the pond.

Although John Whelan grew up near London in Dunstable, England, he was raised on the fiddle and pipe music of Ireland.  At the age of 14, already a seasoned winner of numerous accordion championships, John recorded his first album Pride of Wexford.  Since then, he has recorded six more albums, and has collaborated with such luminaries as Eileen Ivers, Bernadette Peters, Johnny Cunningham, Tim O'Brien, and Kathy Mattea.  He appeared in the major motion pictures Ride with the Devil, The Drowning Plains and Gods and Generals, and has performed live on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Fox After Breakfast.

Voted the Falcon Ridge Festivals "Most Wanted" band of 2016, the Brattleboro-based band Low Lily explores the roots and branches of American folk music, creating a unique brand of acoustic music that is rooted yet contemporary.  Low Lily is Liz Simmons (vocals, guitar) Flynn Cohen (vocals, guitar, mandolin) and Lissa Schneckenburger (vocals, fiddle), with Corey DiMario (double bass).  They are all masterful players, composers and arrangers with deep relationships to traditional music styles ranging from bluegrass to Irish, Scottish, New England and Old Time Appalachian sounds.

"The new face of Scottish fiddling in the USA" - (The Living Tradition), Katie McNally has made waves in both the American folk music scene and abroad since the release of her debut album Flourish in 2013.  A 2009 New England Scottish Fiddle Champion and recent cover girl for Fiddler Magazine, Katie has performed and taught fiddle courses in the U.S., Canada, Spain, Scotland, England and France.  Katie attended both the University of Glasgow and the National Piping Centre in Glasgow, Scotland where she studied ancient and modern Scottish literature and Scottish traditional music.  She has performed and toured with famed Galician piper Carlos Núñez, the fiddle super-group Childsplay, Eric McDonald and with her own trio.
