This is a strange and challenging time to be a musician. While we are all in isolation, I hope that music can continue to bring us together and strengthen a sense of community during this time. I'm happy to make an effort to that end and am looking forward to sharing some classic guitar repertoire. I plan to rekindle my relationship with some Spanish music by Albéniz and Tárrega and offer some great pieces by Piazzolla and other Latin American composers. I hope that this will be a casual, interesting, and connecting experience!

Tara Novak & Ciaran Nagle

Tara Novak & Ciarán Nagle
with Scott Nicholas on piano

Sunday, April 5, 3-4pm

Ciarán Nagle (Irish Tenor) and Tara Novak (vocals, violin/fiddle) have been performing together since they met in 2005 on a bus at the beginning of a Christmas tour with Ciarán’s show, the Three Irish Tenors. Sharing both a passion for Irish music and for the art of entertainment, they soon after decided to develop their group “Ishna” - a project which would allow for more in-depth exploration of Irish and folk repertoire, as well as providing an opportunity to showcase their vocal harmonies, Tara’s up-beat arrangements of Irish instrumental music, and new compositions written by the pair of them. They will be accompanied by Scott Nicholas on piano.
