Kieran Kane &

Rayna Gellert

Kieran Kane’s seminal work in The O'Kanes and Kane Welch Kaplin, as well as co-founding the independent label Dead Reckoning Records, laid the foundation for the contemporary world of Americana music. A successful solo artist, collaborator, and songwriter (with songs recorded by Alan Jackson, John Prine, Emmylou Harris, and many more),

Kieran is a musician's musician: his playing is always understated, always groove-oriented, and always serving the song.

If Rayna Gellert seems a preternaturally gifted songwriter, it’s because she’s seen farther into the old songs than most. Growing up in a musical family, she turned to Appalachian old-time music at a young age, becoming a prodigious fiddler and leading a new revival of American stringband music through her work with the acclaimed roots band Uncle Earl. An in-demand collaborator, she has toured and recorded with artists such as Scott Miller, Abigail Washburn, Toubab Krewe, and Robyn Hitchcock.
 

Kieran and Rayna first met, fittingly, at San Francisco's celebrated Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival, which led to their cowriting songs for Kieran's recent album, Unguarded Moments (Dead Reckoning). They joined forces again for Rayna's 2017 release, Workin's Too Hard (StorySound Records), which they also co-produced. Their first duo album, The Ledges, was released in February of 2018 on Dead Reckoning Records. Their second album together, When the Sun Goes Down, was released March 20, 2019.

Fans of either artist will recognize the musical kindred-spiritedness in their restrained and roots-oriented approach to both songs and arrangements.

Lissa Schneckenburger & Corey DiMario

Vermont based fiddler and folk singer Lissa Schneckenburger is well known for her driving interpretations of traditional New England fiddle tunes and her recent release of original songs for foster and adoptive families, but this month she is pairing down and playing streaming shows with her husband, double bassist and tenor guitar player Corey DiMario (of Crooked Still).

The duo has often chosen alternatives to the typical lifestyle of a touring musician, like last year when they traveled to all of their shows via bicycle. This winter the couple will be performing a post Valentine’s Day show hosted by the iconic folk venue Club Passim. Given the constraints of the pandemic and concerns for keeping audience members safe and healthy, the musicians decided to stream their concerts live on the internet rather than play in person. This allows music fans to tune in to hear music from the comfort and safety of their own home, from anywhere in the world.

 

The music that Schneckenburger and DiMario make is inspired by other beloved folk duos (like Ani DiFranco and Todd Sickafoos, Chris Wood and Andy Cutting, and young new-comers Jenna Moynihan and Mairi Chaimpbeul).  They have crafted an intimate show with sparse interpretations of both traditional and contemporary music.  Selections will include songs about love, heartbreak, classic fiddle tunes, and two new world premiers.  

 

The two first met eighteen years ago at The New England Conservatory in Boston, and have played and recorded together in a variety of ensembles ever since.  As Schneckenburger explains, “although performing with a big band can be exhilarating, we’re looking for a deeper connection to our favorite music with this duo approach…  stripping back the layers to find the bones of each piece and appreciate it’s simple beauty.”
