Dick Hensold, the leading Northumbrian smallpiper in North America, coming to Somerville in September

notloB's Fall music series will begin in a new (for us) venue, the intimate (50 seat) cafe at the Somerville Armory, presenting the one and only Dick Hensold!
Wednesday, September 23, 2015, 8pm (doors at 7:30)
191 Highland Ave, Somerville, MA 02143

This will be the first of many concerts at this new venue - the announcement of a full season of concerts in the cafe will be made soon. As we did at our Loring-Greenough concert series, admission will be by free-will donation.
General admission $15-20 (suggested).
Seniors and students $10 (suggested).
As this is a small space, reservations via Eventbrite are strongly suggested.

Dick Hensold is the leading Northumbrian smallpiper in North America, and for the past 20 years has performed and taught in England, Scotland, Japan, Canada, and across the United States. (He is a regular instructor/ performer at the Piper's Gathering event in VT.) His solo Northumbrian smallpipes CD Big Music for Northumbrian Smallpipes was released in 2007. He is based in St Paul, MN.

His solo concert features Northumbrian smallpipes (a quiet bagpipe from Northeast England), reel pipes (an indoor version of the Scottish Highland pipes intended for Scottish dance music), seljefløyte (Norwegian willow-flute), säckpipa (Swedish bagpipes), pibgorn (Welsh hornpipe), and several other instruments. He plays music in several traditional and historical styles, with particular emphasis on Cape Breton, early Scottish, and Northumbrian, but also including Scandinavian, medieval, Irish, and original music. The program also includes a couple of songs, neither of them in English, and a limited amount of dancing while seated.
