Concert: Larksgrove
Saturday, Sep. 10, 2:00 pm
Through an innovative blending of classical with old-time fiddle music, Larksgrove brings its fresh voice to concert halls, dance halls, and even tall ships. Their music has been described as electric, truly original and inventive. It takes listeners from soulful melodies that pluck the heartstrings to toe-tapping fiddle tunes that lift the spirit.

About the band: EmmaLee Holmes-Hicks (violin) grew up on a farm near Chillicothe, where her first audience was a very attentive flock of sheep. From there, her violin has taken her around the world with orchestras from Brazil to Canada and Europe. Raised in the wooded Berkshires of western Massachusetts, Peter Zay (cello, guitar) cut his musical teeth playing in rock and heavy metal bands while studying classical cello and donning his tux for orchestra concerts. Now living on the East Coast, EmmaLee and Peter perform as the duo Larksgrove, savoring their creative collaboration and the challenge of new styles of music and difficult repertoire.
