Yann Falquet and Keith Murphy at TreeWild House Concerts

3 August 2019
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
TreeWild House Concerts

At Treewild, we have wizards flying so we don’t do concerts in the summer. But when Yann Falquet and Keith Murphy contacted us about an early August concert, we decided we’d break all our rules and host them. Because – well – it’s Yann and Keith!

Keith Murphy and Yann Falquet, in a new collaboration, create a fresh new sound of open-tuned guitars along with mandolin and mandola for an exciting mix of traditional songs. Yann Falquet and Keith Murphy are both masters of contemporary trad guitar, representing the compelling textures, harmonies and rhythms that this instrument has brought to traditional songs and instrumentals since the Celtic music revival in the 1970s. As singers, they bring a rich blend of the Franco and Anglo song traditions.

Yann comes with a wealth of songs from the French Canadian cultural heritage. He is probably best known for his work with the Quebecois trio Genticorum. He also performs in a duo with his wife and cellist, Natalie Haas, alongside fiddlers Alasdair Fraser and Brittany Haas in New World Assembly, and as a guest of member of The Seamus Egan Project.

Keith is a highly respected traditional singer and brings a song repertoire filled with gems from his native Newfoundland as well as Quebec and his current home, Vermont. He was a founding member of the ground-breaking trio, Nightingale, and is the artistic director of the Brattleboro Music Center’s Northern Roots Festival and music director for the WGBH annual St Patrick’s Celtic Sojourn.
