Join Jim and Willow Sirch, and Gary Wikfors for a lively evening of songs and tunes on Swedish nykelharpas, 5-string fiddle, Irish blackwood flute, octave mandola, bodhran and banjo. They play Best Video Film & Cultural Center outside Sat., Aug. 27. The show starts at 5 PM.
These three friends met while performing together as part of the venerable New Haven-based band The Fiddleheads which has been playing for New England contra dances for 30 years. Enjoy an evening of memorable songs, haunting airs, and cheerful jigs and reels performed by these longtime musical friends. When not playing for contra dances, Jim and Willow may often be found playing at local Irish sessions, and multi-instrumentalist Gary is equally at home playing a wide variety of styles as part of the Walkingwood Mandolin Quartet.
There will be donation vases for the musicians and the venue. Please consider being generous in supporting musicians—opportunities to perform have been fewer in the past couple of years. Suggested donation of $10.
The parking lot is closed off for seating. There is on-street parking on Thornton Street, as well as parking behind our building and across the street at Spring Glen Church.
