Enjoy Scottish fiddling, pipe concert
Famed musician Andrea Beaton to appear
Cape Breton fiddler, composer and step dancer Andrea Beaton will present a concert Jan. 25 at Winona Grange, 8340 SW Seneca St., Tualatin.
Appearing with her will be piper Dick Hensold and guitarist Dirk Freymuth. The concert features traditional Cape Breton Scottish fiddling and piping, focusing on the musical and cultural interplay between the fiddle and the pipes, two instruments that have had a long and mutually influential relationship in Cape Breton.
Beaton is regarded as one of the most accomplished and well-known fiddlers from the newest crop of Cape Breton musicians.
Her music is characterized by her powerful bow, the drive and swing of her timing and the crispness of her attack.
She has released five solo CDs, one of which won the 2010 East Coast Music Association Instrumental Recording of the Year award.
Tickets to the concert are $17 general admission or $12 for veterans and students online through brownbagtickets.com/event/499580.
All tickets are $20 cash or check at the door.
