The sensational TRISTAN LE GOVIC      

IN CONCERT

Breton music is part of the Celtic repertoire as well as Irish, Scottish or Welsh music.

Originally from Brittany, Tristan Le Govic was only six years old when he began learning the Celtic harp at the Conservatoire of Traditional Music of Soye (Plœmeur).  A gold medalist in Celtic harp (Rennes, Brittany), he holds an M.A. and a National Diploma in teaching traditional music. He is currently working on a PhD in Musicology on the Breton harpist Kristen Noguès. He has won several awards including the Kan ar Bobl, a major music competition where the biggest names in Breton music have emerged. Performing on international stages, critics pronounce him one of the leading Celtic harpers today.

Tristan is the editor of the Antologiezh Telenn Breizh, a unique collection of Breton harp music in three volumes.

Singer, storyteller, and virtuoso musician, Tristan’s repertoire includes traditional music and his own compositions with extraordinary rhythmic and melodic diversity.

NOVEMBER 2:   TANIA OPLAND and MIKE FREEMAN  
Since 1995 Tania Opland and Mike Freeman have been touring internationally from home bases half a world apart. With songs in several languages and from many cultures, they use more instruments than any sane duo would travel with: hammered dulcimer, guitar, recorders, cittern, assorted unusual violins, Native American flute, ocarina, vielle-a-roue, percussion, and probably more.
MIKE FREEMAN’s roots are in Eastern Europe, with grandparents from Russia, Romania and Hungary. Born and raised in Manchester, England, Mike now lives in County Kilkenny, Ireland. He has accompanied Middle Eastern and African dance troupes, and performed at countless festivals throughout Great Britain.
TANIA OPLAND has homes on an Indian reservation in Washington State, in Kilkenny Ireland, and in Anchorage, Alaska. She has performed in the U.S., Canada, Russia, Uzbekistan, Scotland, Ireland and England.
To reserve your seat, email laurie@laurieriley.com . The address will be given to you when you register.
