Susie Petrov and Calum Pasqua Behind the Scenes of A Celtic Sojourn, Live
Saturday, August 23, 2014, 4:30-7pm
WGBH Studios

Tickets: $25 Members; $35 Non-Members

You’re invited to our summer installment of A Celtic Sojourn, Live!

Join host Brian O’Donovan in his ongoing exploration of the “roots and branches” of Celtic music. On Aug. 23, Brian will introduce two contrasting ends of the spectrum: Susie Petrov (piano) and Calum Pasqua (fiddle) playing together, and the group Alba’s Edge.

Susie Petrov has been performing Scottish music since 1980. She and Calum Pasqua met a long time ago, but their professional association began in 2006 when Susie heard Calum play the winning set in the New England Regional Fiddle Championship. (Calum also is the first American ever to win the Glennfiddich Scottish Fiddle Championship.)

The music of Alba's Edge is a tapestry of cultures: the expressive melodies of Scottish fiddle music are woven together with jazz improvisation and harmony, funk bass lines, and the rhythms of Latin America to form a cohesive and singular musical experience.

After the live performance, you can enjoy a reception with the musicians or tour our studios. Please note, doors close at 5pm for the performance.
