CD Release concert featuring Nellie Quinn & Chris Meredith
A resurgence, an awakening, and a meeting place between special friends – Nellie Quinn & Chris Meredith.
Having grown up in Victoria, Canada and Drumnadrochit, Northern Scotland respectively, these diverse fiddlers met through traditional session playing. They draw upon their experience as performers, tune collectors, instructors and collaborators as they reunite for what promises to be a very special performance.
“We are players, from two distinct styles and traditions” remarks Quinn. “This project is very much a celebration of our common ground and stylistic nuances.”
Their own blend of traditional and modern Celtic fiddle styles is what you are sure to hear! This collaboration is the sharing of lively renditions of tunes old and new. Nellie Quinn & Chris Meredith as a folk duo combines fun, drama, and spontaneity, so you can experience first hand, the joy of being at a true session of close friends! With already one North American tour under their belts Nellie Quinn & Chris Meredith will be releasing their first album together entitled “The Greenside Sessions” and gearing up for a CD release tour in North America in 2017
