The Corvallis Folklore Society and PRAx Present: Rakish

In a performance that toes the line between concert music and session music, the Boston-based duo Rakish explores tunes and songs from Irish and American folk traditions in a way that reflects their shared interest in and love for old traditional tunes and chamber music. Maura Shawn Scanlin, a two-time U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion and a winner of the Glenfiddich Fiddle Competition, wields the technical range of a classical violinist and the deep sensitivity of a traditional musician. Guitarist Conor Hearn, a native to the Irish music communities of Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, performs with several traditional music bands. Rakish has taken the Celtic music scene by storm with performances at prestigious venues and festivals across North America.

This is the headliner concert for the Corvallis Celtic Festival, July 25-28.
