Ari & Mia
8:00 PM @ the Community Arts
Cafe, 411 West 4th St.,
Ari and Mia, Boston's Americana sister act, draw from the Southern and Northeastern fiddle traditions
and the American songbag. SingOut Magazine said that Ari and Mia "...blend a traditional rootsy grounding with
a clear background of classical training. Their own works are soothing and fresh, tasteful and accomplished."
Both sisters studied at Boston's New England Conservatory its cutting edge Contemporary Improvisation program.
Mia's song "Across the Water" won the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the folk category.
Ariel Friedman is a multi-genre cellist, composer,
and educator, having taught at music camps and workshops from New England to New Zealand. Mia Friedman is a championship
fiddler and fine singer, largely influenced by the Appalachian old-time and American Roots traditions. This background
and training make for some very fine Americana music.

Pete and Maura Kennedy have
performed for Fiddle & Bow several times over the years and we are excited about bringing this talented duo back to our
stage. Both are fine singer/songwriters as well as outstanding instrumentalists. Their ukelele duos on well-known
standards are not to be missed! They are celebrating their 20th year of performing together in 2015 and are releasing
three albums of new material; "West," which will be released first in England (but available at their concerts),
Pete's long-awaited solo album, "Heart of Gotham," five years in the making, and Maura's solo CD,
"Villanelle: The Songs of Maura Kennedy and B.D. Love," is a collaboration of the lyrics of published poet B.D.
Love with music composed by Maura Kennedy.
Great vocals and instrumentals, solid songwriting, and an eclectic repertoire make The Kennedys one
of the best acts on the folk scene.

Special Extra Thursday Show
The Tannahill Weavers
PM @ the Community Arts Cafe, 411 West 4th St., W-S
Cover: $18/$16 F&B/CAC members
Once again fortuitous routing
has given us the opportunity to present one of the most popular and longest standing Scottish folk bands, the Tannahill
Weavers. The Tannies are one of Scotland's premier traditional bands. Their diverse repertoire spans the
centuries with fire-driven instrumentals, topical songs, and original ballads. The band features original members Roy
Gullane on guitar, vocals, and silly stories and Phil Smillie on flute, whistle, bodhran and harmony vocals.
Phil joined the band when he was 16 years old. The other members of the band are John Martin, one of the most
respected fiddlers in Scotland on fiddle, viola, cello and bass vocals and newest member Lorne MacDougall, multi-winner
of the BBC Young Traditional Musician of the Year finalist, on highland pipes. We had a full house last time
these guys were here so you better get there early!
