Hanneke Cassel – CD release!

TICKETS STILL REMAIN! ... but we have had to take our credit card processor offline. Please call in your reservations for our April 15, 8:00 p.m. concert with the Hanneke Cassel Band to 401-725-9272.

Effervescent and engaging, Boston-based fiddler Hanneke Cassel’s fiddle music fuses influences from the Isle of Skye and Cape Breton with Americana grooves and musical innovations. Tonight's concert will celebrate the release of her new CD, “Infinite Brightness.” Hanneke has performed and traveled across North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. Hanneke’s music is a blend of the contemporary and traditional, described by the Boston Globe as “exuberant and rhythmic, somehow wild and innocent, delivered with captivating melodic clarity and an irresistible playfulness.” Her incredible trio tonight features Keith Murphy on guitar/vocals, and Tristan Clarridge, a former 5-time Grand National Fiddle Champion, on cello. Newfoundland-born guitarist Keith Murphy began absorbing his native musical languages – folksongs, ballads and dance music – from an early age. A proficient multi-instrumentalist, he has long applied considerable energy to the rhythmic side of music, becoming a valued band member and highly sought-after sideman on guitar, mandolin and foot percussion. Tristan Clarridge founded the Bee Eaters with sister Tashina and switched to cello in the pioneering bluegrass-new folk sensation Crooked Still. He has toured with Mike Marshall, Bruce Molsky and Cape Breton fiddle phenomenon Natalie Macmaster.
