KOEHLER & KELLY: CREATE Community

Fiddler Gretchen Koehler & pianist Daniel Kelly set fiddle tunes ablaze. "Best New Sounds." Thistle & Shamrock, NPR
_____
Genre busting duo Koehler & Kelly blend the raw energy of traditional fiddling with the nuanced lyricism of jazz piano. Gretchen Koehler's left hand boasts a fierce Irish brogue and her bow arm provides a distinct Old Time drive, while her feet hammer out accompaniment on the floorboards in typical Quebecois style. TIME Magazine calls Koehler “astonishingly good." Award winning pianist and composer Daniel Kelly blends jazz, classical and folk music into his signature sound. Time Out New York declares Kelly "powerfully moving." In concert, they spark an innovative musical conversation while celebrating a deep respect for folk music traditions. www.GretchenKoehlerMusic.com
