Double bill with Golden Shoals AND Elise Boeur & Adam Iredale-Gray. Presented with the Pacific Bluegrass & Old Time Music Society.
What started as casual jam sessions at their house in Boston, Mass would become Golden Shoals. Initially brought together by a mutual love of American folk music, it was hard to know that in seven years that love would bring them to Canada, Australia, the UK and Germany, not to mention 33 of the 50 states.
Duo AMY ALVEY (fiddle, guitar) and MARK KILIANSKI (guitar, banjo) graduated from Berklee College of Music, where both were first exposed to playing traditional old time and bluegrass music. Boston, with its burgeoning roots music scene, was a perfect place for the duo to find their sound, but rising rent costs proved difficult to sustain. In 2016 they began touring nationally while living in their camper van “Irene”. The idea was to see the country in the only way they knew how: entertain and connect with audiences with their music, while finding the next city to lay roots. After centering around Asheville, North Carolina’s rich old time music scene for 3 years, they have relocated to Nashville, TN to soak in the strong bluegrass and country history there.
ELISE BOEUR & ADAM IREDALE-GRAY
Members of JUNO nominated, CFMA winning neo-folk quintet Aerialists, Elise Boeur & Adam Iredale-Gray explore fiddle music in fluid, easy lockstep.
Fiddler and Hardanger fiddle player Elise Boeur draws from the wells of Norwegian and Swedish fiddle music, melds in fistfuls of arcane influences, and emerges with a multi-faceted sound grounded in Nordic traditions. A founding member of indie-folk band Fish & Bird, Adam Iredale-Gray is a versatile guitarist and fiddler with deep roots in Irish traditional music and a commitment to innovation.
They each spent years touring as collaborators with diverse projects, and all along they were playing fiddle tunes at sessions, folk dances, and afterparties. With this duo project, you’re invited into these social music afterhours, as they dig into their favourite tunes on hardingfele, guitar, and raging twin fiddles.
Concert is live & streamed. Doors 7pm/ Show 8pm.
