Caoimhín Ó Fearghail & Christine Delphine Hedden

9 August 2019
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Four Corners School

presented by the Vermont School of Irish Traditional Music

We are delighted to welcome two wonderful musicians to the Four Corners Schoolhouse for a gorgeous evening of Irish traditional music and song in an acoustic setting.

Caoimhín Ó Fearghail is a multi-instrumentalist and singer who comes from the Irish-speaking area of An Rinn in the Waterford Gaeltacht. Accomplished on flute, guitar, tin whistle, and uilleann pipes, he has been greatly influenced by the many great traditional musicians and singers from his home area, as well as numerous others he has met all over the country and abroad. His recent recording, “Flute & Fiddle” with Paddy Tutty, is one of the most admired and talked about Irish traditional albums of the last year. Featured on many albums, he has toured with the supergroup Danú, and was the 2012 recipient of the TG4 Young Musician of the Year award in Ireland.

Boston-based artist, Christine Delphine Hedden, draws upon many wells: traditional, classical and contemporary. She is a composer, a fiddle player and violist, a percussive dancer, and a storyteller in word and song. Hailing from the highlands of western Connecticut, Christine grew up playing New England folk music and fell in love with Irish traditional music along the way. Now, her work seeks to bring her diverse musical communities to a place of appreciation and awe for one another.
