“…(a) kaleidoscope of sounds and styles with equal parts amiability and energy… crossing genres sometimes within one song or tune set, devising thoughtful, elaborate arrangements, and adding their own compositions, which fit snugly into the mix.” - The Boston Irish Reporter
“These three guys took us into their musical universe; sometimes very energetic, sometimes very poetic and touching. Beauty for the soul.” - - André Marchand, musician, QC, CAN

Opening at 7:00pm: Matt Rolland on fiddle is joined by Freddy Parish on guitar, banjo, and vocals for a night of old-time music and original instrumentals. Matt Rolland from Tucson, Arizona has had a fiddle in his hand since the age of four.

See the videos--the first is instrumental, the second a vocal; which speeds up, adding a new fiddle tune after the first 2 1/2 minutes. The third one is mostly vocal and gives a history of Ellen and where she grew up. They have won Best of Scotland awards both as a band and for Scottish Gaelic singing by Ellen.
