Ethan Setiawan & Louise Bichan – 1/31/20, 7:00 pm

Orkney (Scotland) born fiddler Louise Bichan and Indiana (USA) mandolinist Ethan Setiawan join forces to explore fiddle traditions from Scotland to Appalachia, via Scandinavia and Canada. New compositions, informed by these traditions and by the wealth of inspiration their current home of Boston (USA) has to offer, blend together with age old tunes.

Setiawan has won such accolades as the 2014 National Mandolin Championship, the 2017 RockyGrass Mandolin Championship and has shared the stage with the likes of Julian Lage, Darrell Scott, Bryan Sutton, Mike Marshall, Tony Trischka, Darol Anger, Matt Flinner, and Jacob Jolliff.

Louise has appeared at the likes of the BBC TV’s Hogmanay Live show, Edinburgh Castle, Reading Festival, Cambridge Folk Festival, Lorient Interceltique Festival, Milwaukee Irish Festival and Sligo Live festival. In 2016 she released her first solo album, Out of My Own Light, to great acclaim.

The Fretless – 3/12/20, 7:30 pm

The Fretless is the Canadian Fiddle Foursome playing an essential part in the emerging movement mainstreaming traditional Irish music. The band has won Instrumental Album Group of the Year at the Canadian Folk Music Awards in 2012.

In 2016 they took home a Juno award for Best Instrumental Album of the Year. Through its deconstruction and transformation of the usual rhythmic, harmonic and structured arrangements of fiddle styles around the world, the Fretless is pushing traditional music to a new place, and has now issued itself an atypical challenge in the mission to find and convert fans familiar with “progressive” traditional music.

“The product of brilliant musicians and composers, cross-genre influences in a modern world. The outcome is a unique voice that
is rich, fresh and diverse.” — Folk Radio UK

“The tunes are catchy and the arrangements full of imagination.” — The Herald (Scotland)
