Emma Walsh & Chuck Donnelly are a fiddle/guitar duo from Maine who play Celtic and Old Time dance music and songs. At age 15, Emma Walsh is already a local favorite and musical sensation.  Although playing traditional music is a serious passion for Emma, she continues her classical training while performing regularly with guitar player Chuck Donnelly. Chuck, has been performing live for over a decade with his musical roots firmly in the traditional Celtic and Old-time music scene. Chuck and has recorded two albums and is currently working on a third record with Emma. Emma and Chuck’s performances are filled  with high-energy and musical creativity.  Their music is firmly rooted in the traditions of Ireland, Scotland, and Southern Appalachia; however, their approach new and fresh. In concert, the musical influences of converge and transform into a distinctive style that is brilliantly executed and fun to listen… they’re also just a lot of fun to watch!  Emma’s powerful fiddle playing entwines with Chuck’s percussive rhythms and flat-picked melodies making for an evening  of music that one might expect to hear in any pub or on any stage in Ireland or Scotland. In Ireland and Scotland, the pub is a gathering place for the community. Inside the pub, late night music sessions keep the energy and spirits of the towns folk high and the atmosphere fun; people socialize, enjoy the music, dance, and have a warm gathering place with good company.  This evening expect to be taken on a musical tour from the old country to modern day downeast Maine.
