Celtic Guitar Master Tony McManus, with Julia Toaspern, in Live Online ConcertUntitled
February 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10 – $40
The Seattle Folklore Society presents a master of the Celtic guitar and a talented multi instrumentalist/ singer, Tony McManus, accompanied by Julia Toaspern, in a live online concert on Saturday, February 27th.
Tony and Julia deliver performances that leave audiences in awe at their instrumental fluency, their ability to lift audiences’ spirits through the love and knowledge of the music, and Tony’s gently wicked humor. Tony McManus is recognized as the leading guitarist in Celtic music by none other than the late John Renbourn of Pentangle fame, himself a celebrated guitarist. Tony has also been listed as one of the top 50 transcendental guitarists in the world by Guitar Player magazine, and is also pretty good on fiddle and recorder!
Julia Toaspern is a multi-talented musician from Berlin and has released two albums of original songs. Julia’s artistry on guitar compliments, and weaves boldly and flawlessly in and out of, Tony’s breathtakingly skillful renditions of pipe and fiddle tunes and songs alike. Classically trained, her fiddle playing is a perfect accompaniment to Tony’s pieces, and as a vocalist, her bright and clear vocals blend beautifully with Tony’s strong and sometimes wistful vocals.
