Kevin Carr – fiddler story teller piper
I tell stories and play traditional folk instruments. From the Fillmore West to the Oregon Country Fair, from the former Soviet Union to Spain, from Alaska to Mexico, I’ve traveled to play with and learn from traditional musicians, to gather stories to share and to connect with folks through the ecstatic medium of music. I do solo shows such as “The Other Pipes – exotic and little known Bagpiping traditions of the World”, ” Stories from the Musical Realms – Concerning Inspiration and the Music between the Notes”, “My Grandfather’s Fiddle”, “Fiddle Fables – Stories by and about Fiddlers” with tunes appropriate and appropriated. I play with various groups: Wake the Dead, Hillbillies from Mars, Les Tetes de Violon, Men of Worth, Verdegaio and The Family Carr.
Pat O’Scannell – singer whistle recorder & bodhrán
I have been into traditional music since childhood. My Celtic band CRÍONA played in West Coast venues in the 80’s-90’s and made several recordings. I have appeared at the Vancouver Music Festival (B.C.), Seattle Folk Life Festival, The Peter Britt Festival and Oregon Shakespeare Festival, among others. I have worked with Kevin Burke, Michael Beglan, Christy Deleney, Noel McTiernan, Thomaseen Foley, James Kiegher and of course Kevin Carr. I study Irish Gaelic for purposes of singing, and teach regional and historic vocal styles of Ireland, Britain and the Continent, whistle, bones and bodhrán.
Recent appearances include the Rogue World Ensemble, SORS and O’Shea’s. Appearances in California, Oregon, Washington, Canada, Indiana, Texas, Mexico & Ireland.
