Rhythm Future Quartet — Live at Old Songs

Saturday, March 4 at 7:30 pm ET

The acoustic jazz ensemble, Rhythm Future Quartet has a straightforward agenda: to keep the spirit of Gypsy jazz alive and expanding in today’s musical universe. The virtuosic foursome, named for a Django Reinhardt tune, offers up a newly minted sound, influenced by the classic Hot Club of France, yet wholly contemporary. Led by violinist Jason Anick, the quartet performs dynamic and lyrical arrangements of both Gypsy jazz standards and original compositions that draw upon diverse international rhythms and musical idioms. With Max O’Rourke, Henry Acker, and Greg Loughman rounding out the quartet, Rhythm Future Quartet is dedicated to expanding the boundaries of a vital musical genre.

Flynn Cohen & Liz Simmons — Live at Old Songs

Saturday, March 11 at 7:30 pm ET

Featuring Acoustic guitar, mandolin player, and singer Flynn Cohen joined by Low Lily bandmate Liz Simmons (vocals, acoustic guitar), this tour features duo performances of original and traditional instrumentals from multiple fiddle music traditions as well as original, traditional, and contemporary folk songs. His guitar playing is influenced by a wide range of flatpicking, strumming, and fingerpicking styles and his mandolin work is inspired by bluegrass, old time, Irish, and classical playing. His original music is simultaneously both experimental and traditional, staying within the bounds of his many stylistic influences but always pushing subtly against the conventions.

Máire Ní Chathasaigh & Chris Newman have been described as “the high-wire act in traditional music” (The Irish Times). Máire is arguably the most influential, interesting, and original player of the Irish harp; she also composes, sings, and plays tin whistle and piano. Chris is arguably the UK’s finest flatpicking guitarist; he is also a prolific composer, arranger, and humorist. Together, they have created one of the most distinctive voices in modern acoustic music, performing a breathtaking blend of traditional Irish music, hot jazz, bluegrass, and baroque, along with striking new compositions.

The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc — Live at Old Songs

Saturday, April 15 at 7:30 pm ET

The Nordic Fiddlers Bloc is a fiddle trio from Norway, Sweden and the Shetland Islands who swiftly gained a reputation for their gripping and unique blend of fiddle music since their inception in early 2009. Erlend Viken (Norway), Anders Hall (Sweden) and Kevin Henderson (Shetland Islands), are regarded as leading exponents of their respective traditions. With a firm focus on the rich traditional fiddle music from where they each belong, they have developed a sound that has been described as unique, meaningful, intense and invigorating. Their clever use of harmony, rhythm, riffs and bass lines creates a sound that leaves the listener enthralled but at the same time dumbfounded that the sound only comes from three fiddles.
