Katie McNally & Neil Pearlman

When: Sat., Feb. 6, 7-9 p.m. 2016

Musical trends come and go, but the time-tested sounds of traditional Celtic strains never get old. This weekend, in two intimate concerts, songsters Katie McNally and Neil Pearlman speak to the style’s perennial appeal. McNally, an award-winning fiddler, picked up classical violin as a child but found herself answering the call of Celtic tunes. Pulling inspiration from the rollicking Cape Breton styles of Nova Scotia, Pearlman, a piano and mandolin player, has earned praise from the Portland Press Herald for his “dazzling piano chops.” For a preview of the duo’s technical and emotional playing, check out their YouTube video from the 2014 Newport Folk Festival.

Price: $15-20; preregister.
