For over thirty years dynamic fiddler-piper-storyteller Kevin Carr has honed his craft in smoky Irish pubs, remote cabins in Quebec, and in dance halls across America. He’s played banjo in Latvia, learned to play the bagpipes of a dozen countries and dug deep to find just the right stories to share. His one-man musical theater of the imagination blends folklore, true-life adventure, and the rare, soulful, fiery sounds of fiddle and pipes into a mesmerizing experience
Elias Alexander is swiftly distinguishing himself in traditional music circles as a piper, singer, composer, and sometime comedian he has appeared with greats such as Carlos Nuñez, Alasdair Fraser, and Gillebrìde MacMillan, and has performed at top festivals such as Celtic Connections.
Elias is the frontman, piper, and co-founder of Afro-Celtic Funk band Soulsha, and the leader of Elias Alexander and Bywater Band (formerly known as Fresh Haggis). He also performs with Georgia Old-Time duo The New Millennium Jelly Rollers, and with MAC.
A regular staff member of Alasdair Fraser’s Sierra Fiddle Camp and Creekside Fiddle Camps in Ashland, OR, he is in demand for teaching at other camps around the country.
