Concert: Josephine County Band
Time: 7:00 pm-8:00 pm
Josephine County combines the talents of four powerful traditional musicians into one exceptional musical experience ranging from the United States to Ireland and back. Award-winning fiddler and singer Erica Brown’s wide range of musical expertise includes Classical, French Canadian, Bluegrass, Country, and much more. Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Matt Shipman’s love of traditional music is apparent in his mastery of Bluegrass, Country, and Irish styles of playing. His detailed and thoughtful guitar, mandolin, and banjo playing captivate and delight audiences nationwide. Traditional Irish flute player and singer Hanz Araki is known worldwide for his fresh and innovative approach. His musical sensibility is both inspired and disciplined and has made him a household name from the UK to Japan. Among the finest interpreters of traditional songs of her generation, singer Colleen Raney brings warmth and authenticity to music from Ireland, Appalachia, Scotland, and beyond. Josephine County has recently released its first album, titled East to the West, which features gorgeous four part harmonies, dynamic instrumentals, and a strong commitment to the traditions that brought them together from each of their disciplines.
