Walkingwood Mandolin Quartet
WMQ was founded at the turn of the century (um, the most-recent one) to apply the quartetto classico version of the mandolin quartet (2 mandolins, mandola, and mandocello) to a completely new repertoire. Whatever your preconceptions are about what a mandolin quartet is like, forget them.
Hamden singer-songwriter David Coller brings with him a variety of songs and styles: jazzy soon-to-be standards, new bluegrass tunes, sea-songs, a cowboy tune or two and plenty of straight-up folk performed on the guitar, banjo, and the odd bit of button accordion. If you have wide-ranging (not to say “scattered” or “aimless”) tastes in music, an appreciation for careful instrumental and vocal arrangements, and an enjoyment of polished lyrics, you’re bound to enjoy the show.
Myra and Colin Healy
Colin and Myra Healy started singing together as teenagers discovering folk music. They performed at local events and ran a Coffeehouse called Lorien in Huntington Center in the basement of the Congregational Church Hall. The Healys played with the Ash Creek String Band for almost 4 decades. They perform a wide variety of popular and obscure roots music from the US and British Isles on as many vintage and handmade instruments as they can fit in the car. Guitar, fiddle, mandolin, octave mandolin, harmonica and banjo will all accompany their tight harmonies. Bring your spoons to play along.
