WILL WOODSON AND ERIC MCDONALD

Saturday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m. — BRANDON — Brandon Music presents the dynamic duo of Will Woodson and Eric McDonald on Saturday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m. Joining them will be special guest Tim Cummings. Woodson and McDonald are known as two of the finest young proponents of Scottish music. Cummings, a Vermont-based composer and multi-instrumentalist shares an uncommon hybrid of traditional folk styles – primarily Scottish and Appalachian.

With an unusual blend of wind and plucked strings, Woodson and McDonald bring a breath of sensitivity to a tradition often known for its high velocity. Border pipes, wooden flute, tin whistle, guitar, mandolin, and voice fuse together to create a detailed fabric of tunes and songs.  Soaring reels and swinging jigs give way to contemplative ballads, each displaying the organic chemistry of the duo. Cummings brings his experience as a bagpipe performer to add to the entertainment. He frequently combines music, humor and stories to enliven and educate the audience about the refreshingly odd world of piping.

This performance promises unique entertainment with three professionals whose credentials are unparalleled.

Concert tickets are $15. Venue is BYOB. Brandon Music is located at 62 Country Club Road, Brandon. For more info, call 802-247-4295 or e-mail [email protected]
