Roots music is a wellspring for Copenhagen guitarist Morten Alfred Høirup and Seattle fiddler Ruthie Dornfeld, who have collaborated for over twenty years in The American Café Orchestra and other constellations. This concert features the duo in expressive, intimate musical dialogue including original music inspired by folk traditions from Scandinavia, America and beyond.|
