Description

Berkshire Strings Presents introduces the Studio Concert: an opportunity to hear excellent music in an intimate atmosphere and become aware of interesting projects happening in our community.

This show will feature musicians Neil Pearlman on piano and Alden Robinson on fiddle. Eddie Sporn, a member of the State of Massachusetts group looking at a new passenger rail connection between the Berkshires and NYC, will give a short presentation.

Called “a tremendous pianist” on BBC Radio Scotland, Neil Pearlman is renowned for his unique approach to Celtic music on the piano. Rooted in traditional Cape Breton styles, Neil’s accompaniment expands traditional music with a broad palette of techniques from jazz and other genres. An accomplished Cape Breton step dancer as well, Neil grew up in the family band Highland Soles. He has performed with Natalie MacMaster, Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, among many others.

Alden Robinson has been described as a “powerhouse fiddler” by the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus. He gravitated towards Irish traditional music in college, studying fiddle in Cork, Ireland. He performs regularly throughout the U.S. with the Maine-based Irish band The Press Gang. He also plays regularly for dances and teaches at music camps. He recently served as an Arts Envoy with the U.S. State Department in Lithuania.

Pearlman and Robinson began playing together while on staff at Maine Fiddle Camp in Montville. Their shows treat the audience to a unique evening of traditional music, played authentically, with a streak of creative energy.

Limited seating and parking is available for this show. Please carpool. Refreshments will be served.
