Zigue — Live at Old Songs

Friday, December 2 at 7:30 pm ET

Claude Méthé, Dana Whittle, and Mario St-Germain

Since 1992, Claude Méthé and Dana Whittle have performed, composed and shared everything musical. They are both dynamic singers and prolific composers in love with the Québécois trad-inspired music they make together.  Claude’s raw, emotional singing and authentic fiddling is seamlessly matched to the accompaniment of his longtime partner, herself a rhythmic and vocal powerhouse.

Windborne’s Music of Midwinter — Livestream on Mandolin

Sunday, December 4 at 7:00 pm ET

After many years of serving as the vocal bedrock of the hit Boston institution “A Christmas Celtic Sojourn,” Windborne is performing a full show of their favorite songs of the season! A joyful and heartfelt celebration of song, Windborne’s lush vocals and unique arrangements bring light to a dark time, as they draw on midwinter music from traditional, classical, and folk from the US, British Isles and beyond. Unique from their typical show, the holiday spirit is accentuated with added instrumentation, from concertinas, guitars, and flute, to Lithuanian Kanklės, Irish bodhran, and Georgian Panduri.

With Windborne as their guide across continents and centuries, audiences will be delighted by holiday stories, songs, and humor in a livestream concert for the whole family! Sing along with familiar favorites, enjoy new twists on old classics or sit back and enjoy discovering new favorites, but make sure you don’t miss Windborne’s Music of Midwinter!

Along with his wife, Norma Waterson, he may be best known for his work with the Watersons, Steeleye Span, the Albion Band, Waterson-Carthy, and with his daughter Eliza.

Master guitarist, singer, and songwriter Archie Fisher is Scotland’s foremost troubadour. Archie was born in Glasgow into a large singing family, which yielded three professional singers—Archie and his sisters Ray and Cilla. Music was always in the house: his father’s appreciation of many musical styles (opera, vaudeville, and traditional ballads) proved to be a heavy influence on Archie’s own music, while his mother, a native Gaelic speaker from the Outer Hebrides, was a strong influence on the lyrical quality of his songwriting.
