Whether this is your first show of the week or one in a long line of concerts, you’ll cherish the outstanding artists we have on the “Big Fiddle” stage tonight. If you didn’t get to see Alison Brown and her band from Nashville yet, this is your last chance at this year’s Festival. Alison plays banjo, but you rarely find her in a conventional bluegrass setting. The Grammy Award- winning artist has taken her own path, embracing roots-influenced music and delivering it with shades of the folk, jazz, Celtic and Latin traditions. Ímar’s mix of traditional and newly written tunes from Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man fits nicely alongside Cape Breton fiddler and composer Dwayne Côté, while fellow Cape Bretoner J.P. Cormier will be on hand to share his heart-felt songs and dazzle us with his mastery of stringed instruments. And Cherish the Ladies will show us why they have enjoyed more than 30 years of popular and critical acclaim with a selection of tunes on flute, whistles, guitar, mandolin, banjo, accordion, fiddle, and piano. Get your tickets early. You don’t want to miss this one.
