Roaring Girl Records Presents

ACCLAIMED NORTH AMERICAN DUO,
FIRE & GRACE
ANNOUNCE NEW ZEALAND TOUR

Fire & Grace - Debut Album Is Out Now

Toronto, Canada - March 16th, 2017 - Fire & Grace: Virtuoso Violin Meets Celtic Guitar - Edwin Huizinga, Virtuoso Classical Violinist & William Coulter, Grammy Award Winning Celtic Guitarist bend and blend genres and explore unique arrangements of classical and traditional folk music. They are bringing their musicality and virtuosity to New Zealand March 29th - April 10th, 2017.

LISTEN AND SHARE: Fire & Grace - An Introduction

William Coulter on Fire & Grace:

“One of our most intriguing arrangements is a piece we call the Liquid Gold Suite. The foundation of the Liquid Gold Suite is the Partita in D minor for solo violin by Bach. We play the four movements as a violin and guitar duo - and we insert an Irish tune in between each movement - and then a wonderful Irish reel following the gigue to finish it off. We love the idea of blending Baroque dance music with Irish dance music - highlighting similarities and differences.”

LISTEN AND SHARE: Allemande - Marga's Moment

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
