This weekend, in their first house concert of the new year, they’ll treat the audience to this and other styles: classic Scots fiddle tunes from the Baroque era played in the style of the old masters, rip-roaring reels and heel-stomping jigs from the folk tradition, Gaelic airs heartfelt and mystical, intriguing world-music originals, and live improvisations.

   When: Saturday January 16 at 7:00 p.m.
   Where: Montara
   Donation: $12, and bring a potluck snack

Call 650-728-0862 or email [email protected] for seats and directions.  RSVP soon, as space is limited.

Colyn Fischer, a winner of national performance awards, is a virtuoso violinist and fiddler with grounding in classical music, Scottish fiddling, and jazz.
Pianist Shauna Pickett-Gordon has accompanied most of the great Scottish fiddlers on this continent.  Both musicians compose in a wide variety of genres and teach music.
