Pearlman to perform at Skye
SO. CARTHAGE -- New England Celtic Arts will present Maine’s Neil Pearlman at Skye Theatre Performing Arts Center on Sunday at 7 p.m.
A pre-show jam at Skye Theatre will start at 6:15.
Due to a grant from Patriot Renewables and a partnership with the Kingfield POPS, Skye Theatre is hosting a new series highlighting emerging artists with Celtic ties. The series features regional, state, and international artists who are in the early stages of their development as musicians.
Scottish fiddle, Cuban and Brazilian rhythms, funky bass lines and a healthy dose of jazz harmony and improvisation come together when Neil Pearlman and his groundbreaking band Alba's Edge unveil their new performance.
An innovative Scottish/jazz pianist, Neil Pearlman has brought together an unlikely combination of musicians to form a fresh new sound that has been hailed as "a blood pumping delight" by World Music Central and "a wonderful concoction" on BBC Radio Scotland.
Co-led by Neil's sister Lilly on the fiddle, the band centers around their dynamic musical relationship, a connection fostered by growing up together in a family steeped in Scottish music and dance. Rounding out the quartet and holding down the grooves that are so distinctive to the band's sound will be Oliver Watkinson on the bass and Jacob Cole on the drums.
Skye Theater is located three miles west of East Dixfield village at 2 Highland Dr. off Winter Hill Road and Rt. 2 in South Carthage. Ticket price is $15 at the door. For reservations at The Franco Center and at Skye Theatre call 562-4445.
