Celebrate St Patrick’s Day early with authentic traditional Irish music.

One of Irish traditional music’s leading export, Téada is driven by a fascination for the timeless, expressive force of music inherited from previous generations of musicians. Founded by Sligo fiddler Oisín Mac Diarmada, Téada first came together in 2001. With engaging textural arrangements, Téada, meaning “strings” in the Irish language revels in the vibrant traditional music of Ireland. Deftly playing up its structural intricacies while preserving the contagious energy inherent in the repertoire, the group strives to capture a sense of the rawness and individuality of the solo artist, within a modern group context.

Friday, April 7, at 7:30 pm

Singer and songwriter Jane Voss works from a broad palette of American Roots Music, moving from one genre or style to another with utter naturalness and ease. Her use of Roots idioms is no gimmick, but rather her native and natural expression, borne of influences and loves dating back to her midwestern childhood.

Ragtime, boogie-woogie, Harlem stride, blues, Latin-American Dance Tunes, and original compositions: Hoyle Osborne plays them all with grace and feeling, eloquence, and a masterful style. He is elegant, but never afraid to get down, sometimes funky, and always soulful.

Partners for more than 25 years, Jane Voss and Hoyle Osborn are a dynamic juxtaposition of tradition and originality; rare old blues and vaudeville songs with their own compositions. According to Sing Out! magazine Jane and Hoyle “created their own hybrid of Bay-area folk-blues and jazz.”

Cassie (on fiddle) and Maggie (on piano and guitar) are always at home, whether playing tunes passed down through generations of musicians or seamlessly weaving themes from the Moonlight Sonata into sets of sure-fire reels.
