Friends of Music Concert Saturday Evening, October 8

On Saturday, October 8, after the Seaside Games and Scottish Festival, head on down to Pasadena for an exciting concert with former Scottish Fiddlers members Joyce Pan and David Aks at the Pasadena Presbyterian Church at 585 E. Colorado Blvd.  The performance starts at 7:30.  Admission is free, however donations are accepted.

Joyce Pan (fiddler) and David Aks (cellist), both from similar classical backgrounds, met in the Scottish Fiddlers of Los Angeles as they were both discovering the amazing world of Celtic fiddling. With the Fiddlers, they found a world of extraordinary musicians playing music that was full of life, passion and unbridled joy. In nothing flat, they were hooked!

Joyce and David’s music can best be described as ”Contemporary Celtic,” a mixture old, new, and original tunes infused with toe-tapping, foot-stomping rhythmic grooves. Their inspirations include such amazing artists as Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas, Jeremy Kittle, Hanneke Cassell, and Mike Block.

Their recently-released album, NEW ROADS, can be purchased or downloaded at their Bandcamp page, and more info is available at their Facebook page.
