More about our music

Emma and Chuck have been performing together for three years. Their music takes you on a journey from the Celtic Highlands of Scotland through Ireland to Cape Breton and the shores of Maine. While listening to their music, you are reminded of their celtic music roots and the influence of the Appalachia (Old-time) region in the southern United States. These old-world and new-world related musical cultures converge in New England where a distinctive style of Celtic and Old Time music has taken root. Emma's powerful fiddle style is developed from her classical music training, her experiences at the Maine Fiddle Camp, her evenings spent playing at contra dances with The Big Moose contra band, and her time playing with Chuck. Chuck's percusive rythms interwoven with melodic picking enhances Emma's fiddle and carrying each tune from beginning to powerful conclusion. In concert these two "rock!"

What do we do

Chuck and Emma play concerts, background music, and dances and any combination of these. They know other musicians who can sit in with them if you'd like a bigger sound. Their music centers around the Celtic dance music traditions, but they also play folk music and other related forms of music. "Let us know what you want, and we'll help make your day and event to remember!"
