Please join Kathleen Guilday and Laurel and Sarah Martin for an evening of traditional Irish and Scottish music.
An All-Ireland harp champion, Kathleen Guilday has appeared at Boston’s Symphony Hall with The Chieftains, and entertained President and Mrs. Clinton and Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern at the White House on St. Patrick’s Day 2000. Kathleen teaches harp at the Comhaltas Ceoltóiri Éireann music school in Boston.
Laurel Martin’s fiddling is colored by the intricate ornamentation and rhythmic bowing characteristic of the old musicians of Clare, East Galway and Sligo that are her musical influences. Laurel, who studied with Master Irish fiddler Séamus Connolly, was an instructor for the Boston College Irish Studies program from 1994 until 2007 and currently teaches at the Indian Hill Music School in Littleton, Massachusetts. Laurel has released two solo recordings, The Groves and Larks & Thrushes, and a book and CD set Forget Me Not: Fifty Memorable Traditional Irish Tunes. Both Laurel and Kathleen are members of the renowned Childsplay fiddle ensemble.
Sarah Martin grew up in a house full of music. Trained as a classical violinist and violist, Sarah has gradually moved towards traditional Irish fiddle music. Sarah also loves singing, composing and playing guitar, and in 2010 she released an album of her own songs, In-Between Lullabies.
During intermission enjoy our homemade desserts and fair trade beverages. Hope to see you there!
