Pan Harmonia's Celtic Corner series presents two exciting Celtic duos at Isis Music Hall this May. The Reel Sisters (Rosalind Buda and Kelly Brzozowski) and the duo of Sue Richards and Robin Bullock will take the stage together to showcase their music as individual acts and combine forces for a beautiful and captivating collaboration. With Scottish smallpipes, harps, whistles, guitar, mandolin, cittern, vocals and more, this special evening of Celtic Chamber Music and tunes is not to be missed.
The Reel Sisters are a duo steeped in the musical tradition of Scottish harp and smallpipes. Compelling tunes and songs from the British Isles, Appalachia, and Brittany combine with The Sisters' approachable, lighthearted personalities to create a unique and intimate musical experience. The Reel Sisters' music is uplifting, stirring, and just sweet fun. The Reel Sisters have been delighting audiences across the US since 2018, and are excited to share their debut album, Beyond Measure. Rosalind and Kelly have both performed across the US and in Europe. Rosalind is in demand as a performer and teacher of both smallpipes and classical bassoon, performing in groups from chamber ensembles and festival pipe-bands to early music ensembles and orchestras. Kelly is a US National Scottish Harp Champion with a deep knowledge of the Welsh harp tradition. She maintains an active teaching studio with students from all over the US and Canada. Together, their many-faceted musical experiences bring depth and meaning to the music they love.
A major new duo of two award-winning American masters of traditional Celtic music, Sue Richards and Robin Bullock blend the ancient and magical tones of the Celtic harp with the powerful resonance of the steel-string guitar, cittern and mandolin, drawing on Irish, Scottish, Welsh and Breton traditions to create something truly unique: beautiful and timeless, yet fresh and current. Their individual achievements speak for themselves, with (among many other accomplishments) Sue being a four-time National Scottish Harp Champion and Robin being a longtime touring sideman with Lifetime Achievement Grammy Award winner Tom Paxton. Sue and Robin have been friends and colleagues for decades, having both recorded WAMMIE Award-winning solo albums for the Maryland-based Maggie’s Music label and collaborated on many other projects over the years; now both transplants to the western North Carolina mountains, they’re delighted to be joining forces in a long-overdue chamber-Celtic duo. The magic of their combined artistic excellence and mastery of Celtic traditions is captured on their brilliant duo debut CD Highland Ramble.
Celtic Corner is a new series presented by Pan Harmonia, Asheville's own Chamber Music Collective. Pan Harmonia brings adventurous programing to all audiences in WNC, and Celtic Music is no exception.
