Friday, March 8th - Celtic Night!

7:30pm

Inspired by the high-energy Celtic music of Cape Breton Island, Footworks is a dynamic band that brings audiences the powerful rhythm and beautiful melodies of Celtic music. Footworks' traditional songs, rollicking fiddle, lovely Irish whistle, and strong guitar rhythm make for a delightful and unforgettable musical experience.


8:15pm

Fifth Business

5th B

Fifth Business has been sharing songs about rural living and problematic behaviors for nearly twenty years, bringing their blend of original music and traditional tunes to the farmers’ markets and town halls of the NEK. Featuring Nick Anzalone’s genre-defying fiddle, Stuart Corso’s lively button accordion, Steve Davie’s expressive guitar and octave mandolin, and vocals and random percussion from Heather Alger and Kate Davie, they will be sharing some Welsh tunes, some tear-jerking Irish music, and the one and only happy Scottish love song in captivity.



9:00pm

Jeremiah McLane and Eric Boodman

Jeremiah McLane & Eric Boodman

Jeremiah McLane (accordion, piano, vocals) and Eric Boodman (fiddle, feet, vocals) present an evening of traditional songs and tunes from Quebec and the British isles as well as original compositions. Eric’s intricate fiddling, singing, and foot percussion has been a joyful presence on the New England traditional music scene since 2015. In 2016, Montpelier Times-Argus music critic Art Edelstein named Jeremiah Vermont’s musician of the year, citing his contributions in teaching, recording, and performing in his various configurations.
