Andrew Finn Magill and Alan Murray House Concert
Violinist Andrew Finn Magill and guitarist Alan Murray (please see bios below) will give a house concert Monday, January 22nd 2018, 7:30 p.m., at the Coron residence, 6334 NW 33rd Street, Gainesville, Florida.  Although this accomplished duo will focus mainly on traditional Irish and other Celtic music, they are adept at venturing into other genres, including bluegrass, old-time, jazz, and music from Brazils exciting choro tradition.

Tickets, which are $20 for adults and $15 for students (through college-age), are available here in advance and at the door (as long as they last). However, seating is limited. If you do not wish to purchase in advance, we suggest calling as the date approaches to inquire about availability (352-514-5606, Ken Meyer).
 
We are fortunate that, while in Gainesville, Finn also will be conducting one of the musical workshops he has developed over the last decade while teaching globally at major traditional music festivals. This workshop, embracing all genres, will be an excellent opportunity to hone technical skills and musicianship under the guidance of a gifted teacher. It will take place prior to the concert (same location) on January 22nd from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. For details and tickets, please go to brownpapertickets.com and search for Andrew Finn Magill Workshop Gainesville.

BIOS:

Andrew Finn Magill (www.andrewfinnmagill.com), whose primary instrument is the violin, is an American musician who performs and composes in multiple genres, most notably Irish and other Celtic traditions. Magill grew up in Asheville, North Carolina, where his father directs the renowned Swannanoa Gathering at Warren Wilson College. In 2009, he was awarded a Fulbright-mtvU fellowship by the U.S. State Department to produce an album about AIDS with Malawi musician Peter Mawanga. Sales from the studio album Mau a Malawi are invested in programs that keep vulnerable Malawian children in school, where they become empowered through the arts. Finn has toured with dozens of musicians on four continents playing everything from American old-time music to jazz. In 2014, he relocated to Rio de Janeiro to immerse himself in Brazils choro tradition, resulting in creation of his quartet O Finno and, in 2017, the Brazilian Violin Trio with fellow U. S.  violinist Ted Falcon and guitarist/composer Nando Duarte.  Having been raised at the Swannanoa Gathering, Andrew Finn Magill also is a skilled and enthusiastic instructor who has trained fiddle/violin students for over a decade at music camps around the world.

Alan Murray is originally from Glasgow, Scotland, where he was introduced to the tin whistle at an early age. He eventually turned to the guitar as his primary instrument, and later expanded his arsenal to include the bouzouki. Soon after moving to the U. S., Murray began playing and recording with some of the best musicians on the New York Irish scene, becoming featured on the 2012 INDIE-nominated recording Manhattan Island Sessions.  He has played with such distinguished artists as Karan Casey, Niall and Cillian Vallely, Eileen Ivers ,and Scotlands Battlefield Band, touring extensively across Ireland, Britain, Europe, Australia and the United States.
