Ten Strings and a Goat Skin – the bi-lingual folk-fusion trio from Prince Edward Island – returned to Greater Nippertown last month for a concert at Saratoga Springs’ Caffe Lena, showcasing their marvelously mixed bag of traditional and original music inspired by their Atlantic Canadian roots.
In case math isn’t your strong suit, here’s how it works: Jesse Périard plays guitar (six strings) with Rowen Gallant, who plays fiddle (four strings). Six strings and four strings adds up to 10 strings. Meanwhile, Caleb Gallant plays the bodhran, so there’s your goat skin.
