Music Network brings together an exciting new trio of extraordinary musicians from both sides of the Atlantic this May.

Mairi Rankin and Eric Wright, 2019 Canadian Folk Awards’ Instrumental Group of the Year, have a unique sound that is lush, powerful, and rooted in groove - exchanging rhythmic and melodic roles with a call and answer feel. Showcasing Cape Breton fiddling and old-time cello, their music has been likened to a conversation between two good friends, each bringing a respect and a reverence for their traditions, but with the command and creativity to blend their styles.

Joining this conversation will be the renowned multi-instrumentalist, Tim Edey. His music is joyful, fiery, exquisitely beautiful and full of surprises while his virtuosity is simply awe-inspiring.

Concerts will feature a new Music Network commission by Tim Edey - don’t miss the chance to see this thrilling musical combination!

This tour is presented in partnership with Baltimore Fiddle Fair.
