Jeremiah McLane and Timothy Cummings

 

Saturday, September 6th at 7:30pm

The dynamic duo of Jeremiah McLane and Timothy Cummings play music that is deeply rooted in the Northeastern United States, bringing together the diverse heritage of New England dance tunes, yet have branches that extend across the Atlantic.

Their repertoire includes French dance tunes such as the Mazurka and Bourree, as well as jigs and reels from the British Isles. The duo's original tunes reflect these influences, but also North American Roots music, including Appalachian, Cajun and Quebecois dance tunes.

Accordionist and pianist Jeremiah McLane plays a mix of musical styles. WCAX refers to him as “the master of all things accordion”. He has appeared at numerous festivals in the U.S. and in Europe including the Royal Festival Hall in London, England, the Picolo Spoleto Festival, the St. Chartiers Festival (France), and the Philadelphia Folk Festival. He has composed numerous pieces for film and theatre and has received N.P.R's “Favorite Picks” award for his second solo recording, Smile When You're Ready. McLane also received the French music magazine Trad Mag “Bravo” award for his fifth release, Hummingbird.

Monkton-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Timothy Cummings shares an uncommon hybrid of traditional folk styles – primarily Scottish and Appalachian. Cummings has been a member of the highly competitive Manawatu Pipe Band (New Zealand) and also served as Artist in Residence at the College of Piping and Celtic Performing Arts (PEI, Canada). He is an experienced performer, teacher, and workshop leader and frequently combines music, humor, and informative talks to enliven and educate his audiences about the refreshingly odd world of bagpiping. His first solo album, ‘The Piper in the Holler: Tunes from Appalachia' met with much success. Cummings will play a mix of Irish whistles and ‘indoor' Scottish-style pipes.

Tickets are $15 with a pre-concert dinner available for an additional $20. Reservations are recommended for the show and required for dinner. Venue is BYOB. Call (802) 465-4071 or e-mail us for reservations or more information.
