Kevin Henderson and Neil Pearlman
Uniting two stand out voices in contemporary Scottish music, the fiddle and piano duo of Kevin Henderson and Neil Pearlman is a new collaboration that is bound to set stages alight in their first US tour this January. Each known for his high-energy, joyful and fresh approach to the tradition, their combined sound is fiery yet precise, moving from heart-wrenching airs to sparkling reels in the blink on an eye.
A standard bearer for the rich fiddling tradition of the Shetland Islands, KevinHenderson has been in the vanguard of the Scottish traditional music scene for decades as a member Fiddlers’ Bid, Boys of the Lough, Session A9 and Nordic Fiddlers Bloc. BBC Radio 2 called his fiddle playing “all effortless grace and skill.” Neil Pearlman (“a force to the reckoned with” -WGBH Boston) is recognized across the Celtic world for his unique approach to piano accompaniment, rooted in Cape Breton and Scottish traditions with a heavy dose of personal innovation. As a result he can often be found across the US, Canada and Europe performing and teaching alongside some of the genre’s top names as well as touring with the bands Fàrsan and Soulsha.
