The Old Sod Folk Music Society is presenting an Ottawa concert by two great singers and instrumentalists from Derbyshire, England, Doug Eunson and Sarah Matthews, on Fri Nov 6th.
Melodeon and hurdy-gurdy wizard Doug Eunson and fiddler Sarah Matthews have performed many times at southwestern Ontario's Goderich and Millrace festivals, but have never made it to Ottawa...until now. So we're very happy to have enticed them to the East this time around, and we're looking forward to a concert by one of England's finest folk duos.
Doug and Sarah choose their material with care and craft their arrangements with style and intuitive elegance, playing English and European dance music and drawing on some of the finest English folk song repertoire.
The duo, based in Derbyshire, has been playing English acoustic folk music together since 1995. They both sing - in superb harmony - with melodeon and fiddle/viola instrumentation. The singing is very fine, the playing superb, the sound rich and textured, and all this is delivered with relaxed and easy good humour.
