Becky Tracy and Keith Murphy have a dynamic, deeply insightful way with the traditional music of Newfoundland, Québec, Ireland, France, and New England. They explore the ancient threads that bind these soulful regional and national styles into potent skeins shared among all Western music, revealing them to listeners in all their heart-stopping beauty. The duo are treasured voices in America's vibrant folk scene. Gifted players and singers who stoke the power and sheer energy of quick-tempo pieces to a fine heat, they also imbue the slow tunes with stillness, quiet resonance, and moving serenity. Keith's deft foot percussion underpins his multi-instrument soundscape, all the while intertwining with Beck's elegant fiddle filigree. Their deep feeling for what they do will make this a truly memorable afternoon.
