It’s a pleasure to team up with the Seattle Folklore Society to present Al and Emily Cantrell.
Al and Emily Cantrell cast a magical spell with their airy, joyful acoustic songs. Emily uses her voice as an instrument on soaring vocals like a country Joni Mitchell, while Al plays spirited fiddling and dazzling mandolin. Currently based in Nashville, the Cantrells have been touring and playing their original folk and bluegrass music in concerts and festivals since 1985. Their performances feature Emily’s songs, and Al’s contest-winning fiddling in traditional, swing and Irish styles, their duet harmonies, ”fiddlesticks” (“playing the straws”) and the wide variety of cover tunes from traditional bluegrass to Broadway musicals.
They have recorded four CDs of mostly original songs featuring Jerry Douglas, Bela Fleck, Ranger Doug and Too Slim from “Riders in the Sky”, Jim Hurst, Rob Ickes, Tim O’Brien and Mark Schatz of “Nickel Creek”.
For several seasons the Cantrells taught swing guitar and fiddle at Jorma Kaukonen’s Fur Peace Ranch. They will also be presenting swing guitar and fiddle workshops Sunday, May 10 at Dusty Strings.
Come hear the magic of this special Seattle Folklore Society concert.
