Liz Knowles – fiddle/hardanger fiddle
Niwel Tsumbu – guitar/vocals
Niall Vallely – concertina
Genre-bending and label-defying would be another, and this trio will immerse listeners in the striking melodies, beautiful harmonies, and deep rhythmic grooves that result from their collaborative onstage joie de vivre. Bringing together stellar hardingfele and fiddle player Liz Knowles from Kentucky, masterfully elegant Congolese guitarist-vocalist Niwel Tsumbu, and Irish concertina master and prolific composer Niall Vallely, you can hear the cross-cultural counterpoint that results from their uniquely expressive musicmaking underpinned by the common ground of their shared artistic vision. With a group as musically well-travelled as this, the satisfaction of hearing each performer’s individual contribution is multiplied several times over by their vibrant synchronicity and is sure to get toes tapping and hearts singing!
