Laurel Martin, Mark Roberts and Kieran Jordan
Laurel Martin (fiddle), Mark Roberts (flute, banjo, bouzouki), and Kieran Jordan (sean-nós / “old style” step dance) perform traditional Irish music and dance with the sweetest of melodies and heartiest of grooves. As long-time friends through music, these three artists have collaborated previously in other groups, and they have toured and performed together as part of the fiddle ensemble, Childsplay. As a trio, they present tasteful musical selections, with dance woven in as rhythmic and visual accompaniment. Performing with lyricism and consummate skill, this group also sprinkles their concerts with entertaining and heart-felt anecdotes, promising an uplifting show of good tunes, good steps, and good spirits.
Kieran will also teach a sean-nós dance workshop from 3:00—4:30 pm.
Laurel will teach a fiddle workshop from 2:30—4:30 pm.
