Masters of the Celtic Harp

Masters of the Celtic Harp
Description:

William Jackson has been a major figure in traditional Scottish music since he was a founding member of the influential folk group, Ossian, in 1976. Touring extensively for the past 15 years, Gráinne Hambly breaks the genteel parlor image of her instrument, elevating the Celtic harp right up there with the fiddles and pipes in the realm of dynamic Irish dance music. Rarely have Irish and Scottish music been arranged together with such finesse and creative success as by these two artists. Besides the contrasting and complimentary sounds and styles of the harps, their performances also include concertina, whistle, and bouzouki.

LCCMF Presents Robyn Bollinger: The Bass of Time

LCCMF Presents Robyn Bollinger: The Bass of Time
Description:

LCCMF is delighted to present Robyn Bollinger, a stellar member of our 2015 and 2016 Resident Trio.

Incorporating multi-media historical presentations and live personal narratives with musical performance, CIACCONA tells the story of one of music’s most ancient compositional ideas – the development of a simple repeating bass line – through the lens of solo violin repertoire. The program delves into questions of the meaning of art, the purpose of expression, and the motivations of four remarkable composers spanning from the Baroque to the present day: Biber, Bach, Bartók, and Berio, while simultaneously exploring the personal beliefs and questions of program creator and performer Robyn Bollinger.

Produced with generous support from the Leonore Annenberg Fellowship Fund, CIACCONA affirms that even in the twenty-first century, with minimal technological gimmicks and maximum personal impact, classical music can again be meaningful to every audience.

As performed in sold-out concerts at Tanglewood and the BBC Proms (2015) – and just a couple of days before their Carnegie Hall Concert. “A Night at Bach’s Coffeehouse” presents Apollo’s Fire and director/harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell in music of J.S. Bach and his most admired colleagues. Inspired by the lively coffeehouse concerts led by Bach in 18th-century Leipzig – fiery strings, colorful recorders and a dizzying harpsichord solo… an evening of rampant virtuosity!

This performance includes the planned Carnegie Hall Program: Brandenburgs no. 4 & 5, Telemann’s Don Quixote Suite, Handel’s Terpsichore Chaconne, and Sorrell’s acclaimed arrangement of Vivaldi’s La Folia (“Madness”) which the group performs from memory

.
“Apollo’s Fire has forged a vibrant, life-affirming approach to the re-making of early music… European ears have begun to appreciate the blend of intellect and artistry concocted by harpsichordist Sorrell and her colleagues. Their seductive vision of musical authenticity is guided by a shared commitment to honest emotional expression, rooted in period style yet never its slave.” -- BBC Music Magazine

“Visually charged, minutely stage-managed musical theatrics from Jeannette Sorrell and her irrepressible team of musicians… Utterly sensational, every phrase a Baroque curlicue dipped in gold and then embellished still further. Charismatic and boundlessly energetic… this is Baroque music in its unbuttoned state.” -- TheArtsDesk, London

“Under the inspired direction of Jeannette Sorrell, Apollo’s Fire has become one of the pre-eminent period-instrument ensembles, causing one to hear familiar baroque material anew.” -- The Independent, London

“Apollo’s Fire is one of the brightest lights of period-instrument playing in the United States… arguably the most distinctive in sound and memorable in style. Its trademark qualities: expressive subtlety, exuberance and passion.” --Classical Music Magazine, London

“This swaggering version… makes the most of the variety of instrumental color Bach so exhilaratingly put on show. Two harpsichord concertos BWV 1052 and 1056 are both brilliantly played, as is the keyboard part in the Fifth Brandenburg, by Sorrell.” -- The Sunday Times, London (reviews of Bach Concertos CD)

“These excellent young musicians take a highly gestural approach to phrasing and bring across their music with an exuberant musicality, like wind through a forest. Easily one of the most enjoyable concerts of the season.” -- The Boston Globe

Red Molly

Red Molly
Description:

“This female trio have cut a niche as sunnyside Americana, setting immaculate vocal harmonies to well-chosen cover versions with an upbeat sensibility.”
-The Guardian

“serious harmonizing chops and slick pop savvy”
-Time Out NY

Americana powerhouse trio Red Molly is known for their gorgeous harmonies, infectious songwriting, and captivating stage presence. Laurie MacAllister (bass), Abbie Gardner (Dobro), and Molly Venter (guitar) weave together the threads of American music—from folk roots to bluegrass, from heartbreaking ballads to barn-burning honky tonk—as effortlessly as they blend their caramel voices into their signature crystalline, three-part harmonies.

Gracing stages from Denver to Denmark, from Australia to Austin, Red Molly is renowned for their live shows. Four-time featured artist at MerleFest, breakout stars at RockyGrass, and the darlings of the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, the “Mollies” bring audiences to their feet, whether it’s on a grand festival stage or in an intimate concert hall.

If one word describes Red Molly’s music, that word is joyous. Their brilliantly wrought a capella tunes are love letters to the art of the vocal blend, and their innovative instrumentation is perfectly suited for foot stomping bluegrass-tinged barnburners and heart-full ballads alike. Red Molly is simply a joy to listen to. One of the most moving things about Red Molly’s music is the honest sense that you’re watching three dear friends sharing songs in their living room, and this feeling goes all the way back to their origins. Red Molly got its start with the simple joy of singing at a campsite, when they first felt the electricity that comes when voices blend together like honey and whiskey. That synergy and harmony carries through to today, on their newest studio effort, aptly titled The Red Album.
