Fàrsan In Concert
Powered by four of the brightest voices in a new generation of traditional musicians, Fàrsan unites song, dance and instrumental music from the Gaelic traditions of Scotland and North America. Gaelic has long been a culture on the move; with strongholds in Scotland and Cape Breton, the language and music have travelled to the farthest corners of the New World, finding new homes and nurturing communities in the unlikeliest of places. Fàrsan's brand-new self-titled debut release is a product of this legacy of movement and migration.

Màiri Britton, Elias Alexander, Katie McNally and Neil Pearlman each represent an engaging new take on their cultural traditions. Màiri's Gaelic song and stepdance repertoires have a foundation in her native Scotland but are heavily influenced by her current work teaching and researching song and dance in Nova Scotia. Katie's fiddling and Neil's piano and stepdance continue the strong connection between New England and Maritime Canada, both having grown up in the Scottish and Cape Breton music community that surrounds Boston. Elias brings an American flair to the Scottish border pipes, merging a love of the tradition with a wealth of new ideas.

Song, instrumental and dance traditions are often viewed as three separate worlds, but Fàrsan challenges that notion, bringing together the melodies of Gaelic songs and puirt-à-beul (mouth music) with their instrumental counterparts and interjecting rhythmic stepdance seamlessly to the mix. The result is a unique combination of sound and movement which delivers vibrant energy to every performance.
