Fellswater is a Boston Celtic music ensemble that plays a wide range of music from Traditional to modern compositions, drawing from the heritage of all the Celtic nations, especially Scotland, Ireland, Brittany and Canada. The band's instrumentation changes depending on the musical selection and includes vocals, whistle, Irish flute, guitar, octave mandolin, fiddle, Scottish smallpipes, border pipes and percussion.
The Vox Hunters (Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardi) are seekers and singers of old songs, tireless multi-instrumentalists, and a driving force of traditional folk music in Rhode Island. The duo is known to instigate singing and music-making at any opportunity and they delight in the community that forms around local music events. With a pair of oft-harmonizing voices accompanied by fiddle, free-reeds, and tenor guitar, The Vox Hunters present an exciting and eclectic repertoire of traditional folk songs, driving dance tunes, percussive footwork and other musical varia. Their songs are primarily gleaned from American and British traditions, although their continuing research into old local music has yielded an ever-increasing focus on songs and tunes from their home state.
