Will Woodson & Eric McDonald house concert, 4/4

Will Woodson (border pipes, wooden flute, tin whistle) & Eric McDonald (guitar, mandolin, voice)
House concert in Arlington, 4/4, 7:30pm
Suggested donation $15-20pp + a dessert to share at intermission
email notlobreservations@gmail.com for more info / reservation.

Will Woodson & Eric McDonald are two of the finest young proponents of traditional Scottish music today. With an unusual blend of wind and plucked strings, they bring a breath of sensitivity to a tradition that is often known for its high velocity. Their unique approach, while rooted in the indigenous music of Scotland, is also informed by the vibrant traditional music scene of their native New England. Border pipes, wooden flute, tin whistle, guitar, mandolin, and voice fuse together to create a detailed fabric of tunes and songs. Soaring reels and swinging jigs give way to more contemplative ballads, each displaying the organic chemistry of the duo. Their music is equally at home in a concert, festival or pub atmosphere. You can see them touring across the country bringing their unique brand of Scottish music to the stage as well as around the thriving music scene of Portland, Maine, where they reside and share a teaching studio.
