Four Shillings Short - presented by Global Harmony
Whale and Jazz presents
a Global Harmony concert with Christy Martin and Aodh Og O'Tuama

Friday, April 27, 2018, at 7 pm

Coleman Hall

$10 in advance, plus $5 day of. No host bar, Cabaret seating.


Four Shillings Short, the husband/wife duo of Aodh Og OTuama from Cork, Ireland and Christy Martin from California, perform Traditional and Original music from the Celtic lands, Medieval & Renaissance Europe, India and the Americas on a fantastic array of instruments (over 30) including Hammered & Mountain Dulcimer, Mandolin, Mandola, Bouzouki, Tinwhistles, Recorders, Medieval and Renaissance Woodwinds, North Indian Sitar, Charango, Bowed Psaltery, Banjo, Bodhran, Guitar, Native American Flutes, Ukulele, Percussion, vocals and even a Krumhorn.

Eclectic and unpredictable are apt descriptions of this beguiling duo.  Their repertoire joins together traditional Celtic tunes, Indian ragas and American mountain music into an intoxicating mash.  Through their many albums and constant touring, theyve become known for thwarting listeners expectations and finding common ground in genres not often associated with one another. (Connect Savannah, Savannah GA)  The delightfully surprising collection of songs and sounds this husband/wife act create, stretch the limits of Celtic and Folk music by stirring in generous amounts of Indian Ragas and Medieval flavorings via some of the tastiest sitar playing this side of Ravi Shankar.  (Valpariso Times, IN) Their music is a global potpourri. (New Times, Miami FL)

Around the World in 30 Instruments is a multi-cultural educational concert presenting Traditional music from Ireland, Scotland, England, Medieval & Renaissance Europe, the Americas and India on over 30 instruments including hammered & mountain dulcimer, mandolin, mandola, bouzouki, Medieval and Renaissance woodwinds, recorders, tinwhistles, banjo, North Indian Sitar, Medieval Psaltery, the Andean Charango, Irish Bodhran, African Doumbek, Spoons and vocals.
