Coming to the Franklin Opera House on Saturday, March 26, 2022, at 7:30 PM: “A String Fling!”
Three New Hampshire solo artists come together to share their sublime talents in a lively concert.
Audrey Budington enchants with her fiddle. A 2018 graduate of Berklee College of Music, she is known for her own creative compositions, as well as her Celtic, rock, and funk styles. Elected by Grammy award-winning arranger and record producer Rob Lewis she played in a house band for the TV show pilot Legendary. Audrey has shared the stage with such luminaries as Rosanne Cash and Esperanza Spalding, opened for Black Violin and was a guest artist for Darlingside. She also enjoys teaching beginner violin as well as New England, Irish, and Scottish fiddle styles to students of all ages.
Dan Faiella has been building a reputation throughout New England’s traditional music communities for his sensitive and innovative interpretations of traditional tunes and songs from the Celtic traditions. His harp- and banjo-inspired approach to fingerstyle guitar playing brings grace and energy to the music, and his skill as an accompanist for traditional melody players is increasingly in demand. He studied with folk musician David Surette and classical guitarist David Newsam and he has performed with some of the Northeast’s premier fiddlers including Dan Foster, Alden Robinson, and Winifred Horan, among many others.
Scott Kiefner is an accomplished bass musician. An alum of Concord Community Music School and McGill University’s Schulich School of Music in Montreal, QC, he has studied with Fraser Hollins and Chris McCann. After college, he was selected for additional studies at the School for Improvisational Music Intensive workshop in New York City. He has since returned to New England, where he performs as an in-demand bass player and jazz musician with Jonathan Lorentz, Jim Dozet, Chris Klaxton, and many others throughout New England.
