Scottish Fish 12/20/19 and 12/21/19

Presented by Young Tradition Vermont, including performances at Edmunds Elementary School (Friday at 1:30), Burlington Violin Shop (Friday at 6pm and Saturday at 11am), Burlington Farmer’s Market (Saturday at 12 noon) and Radio Bean (Saturday at 3:30pm), the 5-member Scottish Fish brings their program to the Burlington area on 12/20/19 and 12/21/19.

Scottish Fish are a Boston-based fiddle and cello group whose youthful enthusiasm, unique arrangements, and original compositions have entertained audiences throughout New England and beyond. Members include Ava Montesi, Caroline Dressler, Giulia Haible, Julia Homa and Maggie MacPhail.  Their performances of traditional and contemporary Scottish and Cape Breton music are woven together from years of fiddle camp and session music handed down from generations of the tradition’s finest players. They have performed at the Boston Celtic Music Festival, Somerville and Arlington Porchfests, Boston’s Earthfest, Club Passim and various other public and private venues. They released their first album in 2017 and are releasing a holiday EP in December of 2019, which was inspired by the great response their show at Club Passim in Boston last December, featuring original arrangements of holiday tunes in the Celtic style.

They will be performing at Club Passim again this year, and are bringing their music and the album to Vermont for the first time.
