One for the Foxes to perform at Brown Grand
Dynamic new transatlantic trio One for the Foxes will perform at the Brown Grand Theatre at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
One of the Foxes features Ireland's Tadhg O Meachair (piano, accordion), David Curle (vocals, guitar) and Joanna Hyde (vocals, fiddle) from Colorado.
Merging varied backgrounds in Irish and American folk musics, One for the Foxes' highly personalized sound emerges in a manner both eclectic and grounded.
An All-Ireland champion pianist, Meachair has toured the world with his multi-award winning band GOITSE. His musicianship, recognized by legendary musician Donal Lunny in his “Lorg Lunny” television series, has led him to collaborate with acts ranging from Sean O Se to The Stunning. In recent years he has recorded on many albums and worked with singers and musicians alike.
A multi-instrumentalist, Curley has worked with multiple Grammy-winning acts as well as being a member of the super group, SLIDE. He has toured with Moya Brennan of Ciannad and Ross Holmes of Mumford and Sans and is also known as a champion Irish step dancer.
Hyde is an award-winning fiddler and vocalist and is steeped in musical styles from both sides of the Atlantic. A recipient of the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation's Graduate Arts Award, she has a masters of arts in Irish traditional music performance from the prestigious Irish World Academy in Limerick and tours throughout North America and Europe with various projects.
A free Celtic dance workshop will be offered at 1 p.m. Wednesday at the Brown Grand Theatre.
Tickets for the concert will be available at the box office or at www.browngrand.org.
