FLASH! This Sunday's matinee in Santa Rosa, 4/29, is a fundraiser benefit concert for the community. Five of our families lost their homes in the wildfires. We are concerned and engaged. All profits will be donated to a disaster relief agency to be determined shortly. We ask your help in a last push to fill this theater to the rafters. Please think of friends and associates who would be better off for hearing us play.
Our players come from all over California, from all over the country to share this annual celebration, to play by heart. The dark and joyful music of Alasdair Fraser's inspired solo fiddle along with the full band of 117 musicians captures the essence of springtime. The massed ranks of fiddles are joined by cellos, guitars, drums, harps, flutes, basses, piano, and bagpipes. We spent the summer absorbing the music; spent the winter distilling the arrangements and composing harmonies; and invite you to share our very best work.
Come with us on a musical journey across the world of fiddle music from northern California to far Quebec, and on to Ireland and Scotland, the Shetland Islands and greater Scandinavia.
