The Vox Hunters
Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardiare musically bound by a shared love of traditional Irish music, which originally brought them together, as well as an eclectic and ever-growing amalgam of songs both inside and far outside the realm of folk music. Combining Armand's multifaceted fiddle playing, Ben's self-developed concertina style, and a pair of complementary voices, The Vox Hunterspresent an exciting repertoire of driving dance tunes blended with an unorthodox collection of interesting songs. Aromin is a violin maker and musician based in Providence. He has studied at Berklee College of Music and the University of Limerick, and is a graduate of the North Bennet Street School in Boston, Mass. where he earned his diploma in Violin Making and Repair. Gagliardi is from Connecticut and has played throughout the Northeast at festivals, house concerts, and coffeehouses.
