Brothers Brían and Diarmuid Mac Gloinn grew up playing music together around their hometown of Carlow, a small town in the southeast of Ireland. After moving to Dublin in 2012, they quickly became a staple of the live music and session scene in Ireland, playing their own original songs as well as folk songs from Ireland, Scotland, England and America.

In 2014 they came to the attention of Arbutus Yarns’ music filmmaker Myles O’Reilly, whose videos gained international attention for the brothers. After a chance meeting at Electric Picnic in September 2015, the brothers performed onstage with Glen Hansard, who invited them to open for him on his European tour the following October.

Since their debut EP was released in 2015, they have been busy touring Ireland, the UK and Europe, opening for acts such as Villagers, Roy Harper and Lisa Hannigan (whose band they played in for her Irish tour, June 2016). They have since played sold out headline shows in Ireland, France, Switzerland and the UK.

In 2017 they launched their debut album to great acclaim. Their second album ‘The Hare’s Lament’ was released in March 2019. They have been nominated four times in the RTE Radio 1 Folk Awards, scheduled for 10/25/19 in Dublin, Ireland. Be among the first to see them in North America.

Founded in 1993 by Masa Ogawa in Nara, “the land of Yamato,” and the birthplace of Japanese culture, Yamato travels all over the world with Japan’s traditional Wadaiko drums. Yamato’s dazzling performers put their very souls into their instruments, stirring the hearts of people the whole world over.

“A genuinely theatrical experience, delivered with balletic grace and infectious humor.” Times of London

“This is a show of unbridled enthusiasm, much humor and great musical variety.” – The Scotsman (UK)

Yamato was founded by Masa Ogawa in 1993 in Nara, ‘the land of Yamato” which is said to be the birthplace of Japanese culture. Presently based in Asuka Village, Nara Prefecture, Yamato travels all over the word with Japan’s traditional Wadaiko drums, putting its very souls into the unusual instruments, whose sound stirs the hearts of people everywhere.

In the village of Asuka, a place with more than a thousand years of history and culture, Yamato seeks new expression with Wadaiko as its backbone. They think of the sound of the drums – made of animal skin and ancient trees, some of which are more than 400 years old – as a pulse or heartbeat (Shin-on), the center of life and the source of power which pulsates within the human body.

Like the strong and sturdy heartbeats of a lonely runner with a sleek and powerful body, Yamato attempts to create the energy of life, which envelops the audience and performers. What one feels when surrounded by the sound of Wadaiko, brought out by these highly trained performers, is what the Japanese call “Tamashy”, translated as soul, spirit, and psyche – the basic elements of life. It is something which is invisible and intangible but whose existence is certainly felt. The pulse, carried down from antiquity, will resonate within all the bodies gathered at any given performance.

Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem w/ Anna Patton

Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem w/ Anna Patton

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present New England’s acclaimed roots, rhythm and harmony quartet Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem with special guest Anna Patton at Next Stage on Friday, January 31 at 7:30 pm. The quintet will perform “Wintersong,” a collection of celebratory, poetic, reflective seasonal songs, an ode to light and dark at the turning of the year. “These are some of the most soul-lifting songs you’ll hear in your life… pure magic happens when these four musicians play together” - No Depression

Rani Arbo & daisy mayhem feature 4-part vocal harmonies, indelible songs, fiddle, acoustic and electric guitars, bass and a homemade percussion kit of cardboard boxes, tin cans, caulk tubes, packing-tape tambourines, bottle-cap rattles, Mongolian jaw harps and a vinyl suitcase. Over the past eighteen years, the folk/roots quartet has toured its uplifting, healing performances to concert halls, festivals and residency engagements across North America, and has released seven CDs on Signature Sounds.

Rani Arbo, Andrew Kinsey, Anand Nayak and Scott Kessel’s “Wintersong” swings between reflection and celebration, with verses by hallowed poets, fiddle/percussion-driven New Year’s shouts from the Georgia Sea Islands and Louisiana, traditional carols and songs by modern songwriters. This winter journey full of fierce poetry, wild joy and hope for humanity in its dark times skips the jingle bells and goes straight to the power and beauty at the roots of the holiday season.

Brattleboro, VT clarinetist, singer, composer and educator Anna Patton joins daisy mayhem for this concert. Anna is a member of the internationally touring dance band Elixir, the quartet Dunham Shoe Factory and the Julian Gerstin Sextet. Other current projects include teaching aural skills/ear training and directing the Soubrette Jazz Choir which she founded in 2006. Anna holds a Masters of Music from New England Conservatory's Contemporary Improvisation program.

Next Stage is located at 15 Kimball Hill in downtown Putney, VT. Tickets are $22 Advance / $25 At the Door. For information, call 802-387-0102. Advance tickets are available at www.nextstagearts.org.

Bennington, VT -- On Sunday, February 2, at 4:00 p.m., Sage City Symphony will present a free concert sponsored by the symphony’s board president, Karl Brosch, at Greenwall Auditorium in the VAPA Building at Bennington College. Under the direction of longtime conductor Michael Finckel, the program will include Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 in D Major Op. 21, Handel’s Concerto Grosso Op. 6 No. 1 in G Major, and Table of Toys and Numbers (2012) by Bennington College composer Nicholas Brooke.

His work has been performed across the United States and in Europe and has been featured at the Lincoln Center Festival, the Ecstatic Music Festival, the Spoleto Festival, and the MATA Series. His instrumental compositions have been performed by Talujon, Bang-on-a-Can All Stars, the Paul Dresher Ensemble, the Nash Ensemble of London, Orchestra 2001, Dan Druckman, Speculum Musicae, Sekar Anu, and New York’s Gamelan Son of Lion.

Missy Raines Band

Missy Raines Band

Missy Raines Band
Friday, February 7th, 7:30pm
From her tenure playing with The Claire Lynch Band, to her 7 IBMA Bass Player of the Year awards, Missy Raines has proven herself without doubt as an iconic bluegrass instrumentalist. But with her newest release, Royal Traveler, Raines has stepped into the spotlight as a songwriter for the first time.

Missy Raines Band featuring Missy Raines, accompanied by Ben Garnett on guitar, Avery Merritt on fiddle, and Matt Flinner on mandolin.
Missy Raines was named 2019 International Bluegrass Music Association Bass Player of the Year, for the 8th time, more than any other bass player in the history of the organization. Missy Raines has proven herself without doubt as an iconic bluegrass instrumentalist. But with her newest release, Royal Traveller, Raines has stepped into the spotlight as a songwriter for the first time. The album digs deep into Raines' family life and her upbringing in West Virginia. Featuring previous and current members of her live band, as well as cameos from other bluegrass greats such as Stuart Duncan and Tim O'Brien, the album is a gorgeous look into the perspective, history, and musical influences of one of Nashville’s most beloved musicians, Missy Raines.

Royal Traveller is Raines' third album for Compass Records, and the first produced by Compass' owner and founder, and renowned banjo player Alison Brown. "I went into this project with Alison with the mindset that I wanted to stretch myself and see what I could do. I think we achieved what I was looking for, which is something further reaching and bigger than what I would have accomplished on my own," says Raines.

In 1998, Raines became the first woman to win IBMA's Bass Player of the Year award and she went on to win the title repeatedly for the next several years. Royal Traveller highlights this particular piece of Raines' history with the stand out track “Swept Away”, which features the 5 first women to win IBMA instrumentalist awards, Raines, Brown, Sierra Hull, Becky Buller, and Molly Tuttle. “Swept Away” was named 2018 IBMA Recorded Event of the Year.

Missy’s version of the iconic Flatt & Scruggs “Darlin Pal(s) of Mine” (from Royal Traveller), was named 2019 Instrumental Recording of the Year by the IBMA. The tune features Alison Brown on banjo, Todd Phillips on bass and Mike Bub on bass.

With her new album, Raines tells her story with a vulnerability and bold honesty that rings clear, spoken through beautiful arrangements and well chosen musical collaborations. With nods to many of the varied and challenging chapters of her life, the songs speak volumes of Raines tenacity and musicianship, and her ability to rise to bluegrass fame despite the various confinements of the times. The listener is presented with a striking window into the up and down ride of a very royal traveller, the one and only Missy Raines.

TURNmusic ft. Daniel Bernard Roumain

TURNmusic ft. Daniel Bernard Roumain

Plotting TURNmusic’s next turn, Ann Decker, the experimental chamber collective’s founder and director, charted two distinct paths in search of convergence. In the first, TURNmusic explores the entwined history of Native American and African cultures in post-colonial America, drawing on selections from storyteller/composer Valerie Coleman’s Freedmen of the Five Civilized Tribes. This is contrasted against the second path: the fusion of chamber music and funk. In this section, TURNmusic take on Trevor Weston’s Dig It, an homage to the insurrectionist dance music that soundtracked his youth—particularly fellow New Jersey natives like Parliament Funkadelic and the Jimmy Castor Bunch.

Inspired by this brew of American traditions, funk, collaboration, compassion, and revolution, TURNmusic performs these new compositions alongside the Flynn’s first community artist-in-residence, Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR). Dating back to his celebrated Voodoo Violin Concerto, and continuing through his recent 24-Hour Protest Song—performed on Church Street in Burlington with local artists and activists over an unbroken daylong stretch—DBR has fused his refined classical background with earthy abstractions and the courser textures of jazz, funk, and hip-hop throughout his career.

TURNmusic’s record of celebrating the incredible work of local musicians and music creators (including the recently launched The Late Set, an aprés concert happening that reaches into Vermont’s rich creative community), makes them natural collaborators with the likeminded DBR. For this show, DBR grounds TURNmusic’s centuries-spanning set in the present, finding resonance in the issues and styles of the here and now.
