Celebrate Irish Music At The Chevalier Theatre
The On Stage! concert series at the Chevalier Theatre in Medford, MA is pleased to welcome a triple-bill of the Boston-area’s finest Irish Music performers: Matt and Shannon Heaton, Laura Cortese and Fodhla on Saturday, March 18th at 8:00 pm.
This is a wonderful intimate experience and will be a great way to celebrate the day after St. Patrick’s Day!
“Award-winning duo Matt and Shannon Heaton are two of the most sought-after traditional Irish Music performers in the country. Their record Lover’s Well was named fusion Album of the Year by Irish American News, and Shannon was named female Musician of the Year twice by LiveIreland. Scott Alarik of the Boston Globe writes “Their playing is masterful and inventive, their arrangements city-smart and spacious.”
“Singer/songwriter/fiddler Laura Cortese, often hailed as a folk luminary and a powerful performer, will be doing a rare solo set at this show. Described by John Wenzel of The Denver Post, “Her open-armed approach to her art reveals a determination to spread the word about folk music and dance without watering down their distinctiveness.”
“Fodhla has been dazzling the Irish Music scene from small pubs to large festivals for several years. The trio has created a sound rooted in the traditional Irish music that fiddler Ellery Klein and flute player Nicole Rabata honed during years abroad in the Irish cities of Cork, Limerick, and Ennis. They are also influenced by the depths of Nicole’s virtuosic classical music career, Ellery’s Americana sounds, and guitarist Bethany Waickman’s soft-spoken, yet driving, guitar playing.”
For the On Stage! concert series, the theater is transformed into an intimate, coffeehouse-style venue by placing both the performer and the audience on stage together. With this set up, the venue capacity is approximately 100 people, creating a unique setting to get up-close and personal with world-class musicians.
