Benedict Koehler & Hilari Farrington at Trad Camp

23 July 2019
12:15 pm - 12:45 pm
Lake Champlain Waldorf High School

Tuesday’s FREE lunchtime concert – open to anyone who wants to attend – features Benedict Koehler and Hilari Farrington. They are known across North America as teachers, and when pressed, performers of Irish traditional music. Founders of the Vermont School of Irish Traditional Music, this couple has helped to create a vibrant Vermont Irish music scene where tunes are played in the older traditional styles. Over the years, and partly as a result of Benedict’s work as a maker of uilleann pipes, their home in the hills of East Montpelier has welcomed hundreds of Irish musicians of all ages, with many a tune played around the kitchen table. In their spare time they tend the wood stove in the winter, grow vegetables in the summer, and herd cats throughout the year.

Camp lunch break starts at 11:45am, the concert is 12:15-12:45pm.
