Spotlight on Peter, Paul and Mary

Spotlight on Peter, Paul and Mary

A tribute to the most popular folk group of the 1960s that both defined and transcended folk music. The trio’s passionate commitment to peace and social justice made them the conscience of an era as they soulfully communicated political concerns through music in an unprecedented way. They reached millions with their social message, while their appeal crossed audience lines that other acts couldn’t even approach. Erik Connolly, Billy King and Brianna Gowland will sing favorites such as “Puff the Magic Dragon”, “If I Had A Hammer”, “Where have all the Flowers Gone”, “500 miles”, “Lemon Tree”, “Leaving on a Jet Plane” and more.

3 Fiddlers 3 Traditions at Grizzly Peak Winery


3 Fiddlers 3 Traditions at Grizzly Peak Winery

3 Fiddlers 3 Traditions

3 Fiddlers 3 Traditions

Monday, April 10, 2017 at 7:00PM to 9:00PM

About 3 Fiddlers 3 Traditions

We are three fiddlers from three very different backgrounds – Danish, American, and Native American – who love to play together. Though our band features only one instrument, our show is truly diverse! Every culture brings its own voice to the fiddle – in the Métis style you’ll hear the a hint of Native American drumming, in the Danish, a happy polka party, and in the old-time American, a bit of blues and syncopated rhythms. You’ll hear the fiddle in its purest form, unaccompanied, as we each do a short solo set and talk about the music. Together, we play in duets and trios, using only fiddles for accompaniment. We also feature a few tunes on the 5-string medieval fiddle (“vielle”). Most of our music is traditional, but we have a few distinctive originals as well.

Sample their music here.

Admission $15
Doors open at 6:30

Location: Grizzly Peak Winery

The quartet has won numerous awards, including top prizes at the Concert Artists Guild competition and the Banff International String Quartet Competition. Based in New York, the group has toured extensively, most recently in the US, Brazil, and Mexico. Enso is derived from the Japanese Zen painting of the circle, which represents many things: perfection and imperfection, the moment of chaos that is creation, the emptiness of the void, the endless circle of life, and the fullness of the spirit.
