Rosin & Reed

6:30pm Doors | 7:30pm Show
Rosin & Reed are a trio of musicians playing Irish/Celtic and American tune sets and songs weaving various combinations of instruments including: Uilleann Pipes, Fiddle, Harmonica, Dobro, Mandolin, Guitar, and Voices. These talented musicians play traditional material with an improvisational spirit.
Jan Peters is a multi-genre veteran of the traditional music scene, from early days performing in a duo with Joe Craven to touring Ireland in 2016 with Peadar McMahon. Jan is a unifying force of the band, bringing his distinctive Irish harmonica playing along with shared singing and guitar duties.
With rhythm, grit and drive, Alaska-born Kera-Lynne Newman is a commanding presence on the fiddle. A prolific performer and teacher, she has played with the Juneau Symphony, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra and her own cello-fiddle duo Calaskan with Erin Esses.
Multi-instrumentalist Michael Thomas Connolly rounds out the trio with uilleann pipes, guitar, and fiddle. As a touring and session musician, Michael has shared the stage with the Indigo Girls and Brandi Carlile, and his playing is represented on more than 60 albums across a variety of genres.
Together, Rosin & Reed tap the powerful vein of Irish traditional music, fold in a distinct Americana sensibility, and present the result in a light that feels fresh, powerful, and at times hauntingly beautiful.
