Beloved Cape Breton musicians, Wendy MacIsaac and Mary Jane Lamond are touring together to promote their new CD, Seinn (NPR Top 10 Americana/Folk albums of the year); and are performing at the University of Vermont. Below are the details:
Date: November 22, 2013
Time: 7:30pm – 9:00pm
Cost: $25 adult/$15 advance student
Venue: UVM Recital Hall, The University of Vermont.
In addition to being a world-class fiddler, piano player, and step dancer, Wendy is also a truly charming and engaging performer, full of stories and banter about her life and art. She’s been performing live in front of audiences since the age of five and has toured all over the world, both as a solo performer and with The Rankins, Ashley MacIsaac, and Beolach. Mary Jane is a superb singer and musicologist who has dedicated her musical career to the preservation of Scottish Gaelic songs and has garnered numerous JUNO and ECMA award nominations, critical acclaim, and a worldwide audience for her efforts. This is a powerful collaboration born of a long-time friendship and a shared love of Celtic music.
“Both Lamond and MacIsaac bring this music forth from deep in their souls, and they and their collaborators bring a great sense of fun and passion to it that comes across at every turn. Highly recommended.” — The Green Man Review
