The Old Sod Society is very happy to present Nightingale (www.nightingalevt.org) in concert.
Over the past decade the three superb musicians who make up Nightingale, Becky Tracy (fiddle), Jeremiah McLane (piano, accordion) and Keith Murphy (guitar, mandolin, foot percussion and vocals) have charmed audiences with their vibrant and imaginative explorations of musical traditions that carry listeners across New England to Québec, Newfoundland, Ireland, France and beyond. From a Newfoundland ballad to a blazing set of Irish reels, from a rollicking Québecois chanson-à-répondre to a lilting bourrée from central France, their song and tune arrangements find the perfect balance between tradition and innovation.
Friday, May 20th at 8 pm at the First Unitarian Church, 30 Cleary Ave., Ottawa.
Tickets are $20 and are available at the Ottawa Folklore Centre, Compact Music, at the door and online at www.ottawacontra.ca.
