----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Wherligig

Hosted by Bob Zentz    -    Special Guest:  Amy Ferebee & Regina Scott Sanford

September 30, 2009

The Listening Room at Dockmaster's inside Waterside

7:00 PM -- Admission free!

 

Performing together since 1985, Wherligig has delighted and educated audiences in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States with the earthy sounds of acoustic Celtic and Nordic music.

Wherligig's wide-ranging repertoire, drawn from the Celtic and Nordic traditions of Ireland, Scotland, Cape Breton, Sweden, England, and Wales, has delighted audiences for years in venues as diverse as classrooms, restaurants, festivals, weddings, parties, and the concert stage.

In their duo ensemble, Ken plays the six- and twelve-string guitar, tin whistles, bones and hurdy gurdy. Ryan plays the fiddle, tin whistle and nyckelharpa. Both members play the bodhran (the Irish drum) and contribute vocally while Ryan provides the majority of the singing. Ken has built or restored most of the instruments the ensemble uses during performances. His instruments are known for their beauty and tonality.

Wherligig's love of traditional music and culture, as well as their joy in making music together as a family, adds a distinguishing quality to their performances.
