James Hill and Anne Janelle

Ukulele and cello

Saturday, Feb. 16, 2019 -- 7:30 p.m.

Their music came together by chance. When you hear the ukulele of James Hill paired with the cello of Anne Janelle you’ll be thankful it did. They first collaborated when picked for a track on a compilation album. It led to their duo recording, True Love Don’t Weep, a mixture of traditional tunes and original songs which showcased the duo’s ability “to capture the soul of a song,” (Folk World). The recording won a Canadian Folk Music Award for Best Traditional Album of the Year in 2009. Since then they have released solo albums and toured in over 15 countries, making their mark not only as world-class, award-winning instrumentalists but as some of the finest songwriters of their generation. Now they are back in tandem. “We walked our separate musical paths for a while, but I think we both came to realize, each in our own way, that the duo is our strongest musical offering. There is passion, there is diversity, there are many levels with which an audience can engage with our music when it’s not one or the other but both of us,” said Janelle. You’ll find, said the Wellington Dominion-Post, that a night out with the duo is “the perfect evening of tunes, stories and musical virtuosity”

On September 16, 2018, Richard Lin was announced as the gold medalist of the 10th Quadrennial International Violin Competition, one of the world's biggest awards for violinists who are launching careers that will take them to major stages across the globe.

JigJam -- Irish Bluegrass

Acoustic 'I-Grass' from the midlands

Saturday, April 6, 2019 -- 7:30 p.m.

JigJam is a multi-award winning quartet from the heart of the Irish midlands. The group blends the best of traditional Irish music with Bluegrass and Americana in a new genre, which has been branded as ‘I-Grass’ (Irish influenced Bluegrass). The group’s onstage energy, along with its virtuosic musical ability, has captivated audiences throughout the world. All four members grew up immersed in Irish traditional music and culture, which is reflected by the band collectively achieving over twenty All-Ireland titles at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann competitions. They have now developed their own unique style of music influenced by American Folk music while staying true to their Irish roots. All multi-instrumentalists, JigJam members interchange between banjos, guitars, fiddles, mandolins and double bass onstage, creating an experience pleasing to both the eye and the ear. JigJam has recorded two studio albums to critical acclaim and has been compared to the Punch Brothers by the European Bluegrass Music Association. We hope you’ll join us for this amazing and fun finale!
