Join us the night before St. Patrick’s Day for an intimate performance by some of the region’s best Celtic music artists.
Laurel Martin and Mark Roberts have played together for many years with the fiddle ensemble Childsplay, where they discovered a shared sensibility for traditional Irish music. Lyrical and sweet, their duet playing highlights the rhythmic and melodic subtlety of traditional Irish tunes. A masterful and versatile accompanist, Jim Prendergast spent thirty years working in the studios and orchestra pits of Nashville, TN, and in recent years has moved to Portsmouth New Hampshire where he has delved into playing and producing traditional music. His sensitive accompaniment provides the perfect complement to Mark and Laurel’s playing, and together their trio creates a traditional sound and performance style that is dynamic, warm and engaging.
