Event

Fódhla, Irish music from Portland & Boston
After 15 years of performing together and recording on each others solo albums, Portland, Maine-based flute player Nicole Rabata and Boston-based fiddler Ellery Klein decided a group together was long overdue. With the addition of Bethany Waickman on guitar, the trio found a sound rooted in the traditional Irish music Ellery and Nicole honed during years abroad in the Irish cities of Cork, Limerick, and Ennis. The trio is also influenced by the depths of Nicoles virtuosic classical music career, Ellerys Americana sounds, and Bethanys soft-spoken, yet driving, guitar playing.

Fódhla have been well received at festivals such as Portlands Saltwater Festival, the Maine Celtic Celebration, and the Boston Celtic Music Festival. Their debut recording, Notes from Millpond, was released in December 2015 to a sold-out show at Acoustic Artisans in Portland.
