Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves

Allison de Groot & Tatiana Hargreaves
Description:

Presented by Young Tradition Vermont and the Burlington Violin Shop. $20 suggested donation. Limited seating. Reservations recommended at mark.sustic@gmail.com.

Allison and Tatiana brings together two women on the forefront of American traditional acoustic music. In this new duo, clawhammer banjo innovator Allison de Groot (Molsky’s Mountain Drifters) and fiddler Tatiana Hargreaves (Laurie Lewis, Dave Rawlings Machine) join forces to explore the boundaries of Appalachian stringband music. Having both studied with musicians such as Bruce Molsky and Darol Anger in addition to more traditional masters, Allison and Tatiana share a musical vocabulary that reflects on tradition while also utilizing new techniques and sounds.

Allison has toured all over the world with various groups, performing at venues such as Trafalgar Square in London, Newport Folk Festival and other major festivals across the US and Canada. She combines love and passion for old-time music, technical skill and a creative approach to the banjo. Allison has immersed herself in American roots music through festivals such as the Appalachian String Band Festival in West Virginia, making pilgrimages to musical communities in North Carolina and participating in the acoustic music scene in Boston, MA.

Since releasing her first solo album “Started Out To Ramble” in 2009 (produced by Bruce Molsky and featuring Sarah Jarosz, Mark Schatz, Alex Hargreaves, and more), Tatiana has toured with musicians from Dave Rawlings and Gillian Welch, to Laurie Lewis, and Darol Anger. From being the second woman to place first at the Clifftop Appalachian Fiddle Contest in 2009 to her 2012 and 2013 participation in the Acoustic Music Seminar in Savannah Georgia, Tatiana is dedicated to respecting and preserving oldtime and bluegrass traditions while simultaneously seeking her own musical voice and approaching these styles in new ways.
