Old Songs Concert Series presents the Hanneke Cassel Band

Old Songs Concert Series continues with the Hanneke Cassel Band on April 29th. In-person and live-streamed tickets are available at http://hanneke.oldsongs.org

The Hanneke Cassel Band, made up of fiddler Hanneke Cassel, guitarist/singer Keith Murphy, and fiddler Jenna Moynihan swing through Old Songs at the end of April for an effervescent and engaging concert of delightful music with roots in the Canadian Maritimes.

Boston-based fiddler Hanneke Cassel’s fiddle music fuses influences from the Isle of Skye and Cape Breton with Americana grooves and musical innovations. Hanneke’s music is a blend of the contemporary and traditional, described by the Boston Globe as “exuberant and rhythmic, somehow wild and innocent, delivered with captivating melodic clarity and an irresistible playfulness.”

The Hanneke Cassel Band features Keith Murphy on guitar/vocals and Jenna Moynihan on 5-string fiddle/vocals.  Newfoundland-born guitarist Keith Murphy is a rhythmic powerhouse on guitar and a traditional singer of rare finesse. A native of Newfoundland, he has lived in New England for many years where he has been an influential presence in the traditional music scene through his work with many respected bands, as a tune writer and as director of the Northern Roots Festival in Brattleboro, VT. Jenna Moynihan is regarded as one of the best of the best in the new generation of fiddle players. Versatile and inventive, her fiddling style draws strongly from the Scottish tradition, but is in no way bound by it.

Together, the Hanneke Cassel Band creates a cutting-edge acoustic sound that retains the integrity and spirit of the Scottish tradition.
