Sandra Wong and Ross Martin come together in a dynamic combination of nyckelharpa/fiddle, and guitar to explore music from all corners of the globe, including their own compositions. Sandra and Ross have been playing music together for 8 years and are now taking their duo on the road.
Reaching into their individual roots of Classical Western, Bluegrass, Jazz, Scandinavian, Middle-eastern, Old-time American music and more, their arrangements honor each tradition while moving into new, unchartered territory. Whether it’s old-time tunes in 7, Bach on nyckelharpa and guitar, Swedish tunes from hundreds of years ago brought into a 21st century arrangement, original compositions or simply beautifully played renditions of traditional folk melodies from around the world; Sandra and Ross create a musical playground for everyone (both musicians and listeners) to explore, play, stretch, and grow in a joyful space.
Loring-Greenough House, 12 South Street, Jamaica Plain
