Violin & piano duo house concert, Saturday
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.
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.
