Irish Night at BLUE presents : RAKISH

Wednesday - January, 03 @ 7:30pm

Maura Shawn Scanlin and Conor Hearn, both also of the Boston’s contemporary folk band “Pumpkin Bread,” unite to form their brand new duo “Rakish”. Drawing on their shared repertoire, Rakish performs a compelling take on a variety of traditional Irish and Scottish tunes and American folk songs, in addition to some music composed by the pair themselves.
Maura Shawn, a two-time U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion and a winner of the Glenfiddich Fiddle Competition, wields the technical range of an accomplished classical violinist and the deep sensitivity of a traditional musician. Conor, a native to the Irish music communities of Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, MD, makes his home in Boston playing guitar for a number of traditional music acts and bands in the area. As a duo they have performed on Brian O’Donovan’s Burren Backroom Series and can be heard on broadcasts of WGBH’s “A Celtic Sojourn.”
