A moving combination of Celtic, classical and contemporary folk, described by critics as pure musical poetry. That’s the art of classically trained celloist, Hannah Alkire and her husband, Joe Scott, who plays on his own double-neck invention, a cross between a guitar and banjo. This promises to be a performance of passionate, ethereal and lush acoustic instrumentality.
