This is a coffeehouse concert and admission to the show includes coffee, tea, and a snack. There will be both table seating and theater style seating available.
“Our coffeehouse concerts are a fun night for people to come and bring their friends to hear world-class performers and troubadours in a relaxed table setting,” said GNWCA President Charlie Jordan. “And this duo is certain to delight the audience.” Each known for his high-energy, Henderson and Pearlman bring a joyful and fresh approach to their music, their combined sound is fiery yet precise; moving from heart-wrenching airs to sparkling reels in the blink of an eye. The duo’s debut album, “Burden Lake,” features original tunes from both Henderson and Pearlman in conversation with traditional Shetland melodies. Launched in January of 2020 at the Celtic Connections festival in Glasgow, the album has been lauded as “cold pressed perfection” by folkworld.eu, and received five stars in The Scotsman, and Fatea Magazine raves that “the sheer virtuosity of the musicianship is breathtaking.”
Kevin Henderson’s fiddling draws on the rich music tradition of his native Shetland as well as decades touring with bands such as Boys of the Lough, Fiddlers Bid, Session A9 and Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. Neil Pearlman is recognized throughout the Celtic music world and beyond for his distinctive approach to the piano. He has worked with many of the world’s top folk music artists and is in demand internationally as a collaborator, session musician and educator.
