About The Event

Appalachian and Scottish traditions, intertwined with contemporary compositions.

Hildaland & Liz Simmons with Casey Murray

Hildaland

Orkney (Scotland) born fiddler

Louise Bichan and Indiana (USA) mandolinist Ethan Setiawan present a collaboration and meeting of their musical worlds in Hildaland. A path steeped in the fiddle traditions of their respective sides of the Atlantic, the journey taken wends through Scottish, oldtime, and Swedish inspired music intertwined with contemporary compositions. Bichan’s fiddle is a melodic foil to Setiawan’s counterpoint and harmonic depth, and the two weave in and out seamlessly. Learn more on their website.

Liz Simmons with Casey Murray

Born in San Francisco to musician parents, Liz Simmons (most well-known for her work with the band Low Lily) spent her early childhood traveling through the wilds of North America in a sky blue VW bus. Her parents were itinerant musicians, moving from California to Oregon to Alaska, and finally settling in New England. Inspired by her beginnings and after a brief foray into classical music, Liz found her way back to folk and roots music, founding the bands Annalivia and Low Lily with husband Flynn Cohen, as well as performing as a backing vocalist for Livingston Taylor, Tom Chapin, Melanie, and others.  Visit her website.

Embracing traditions of the past and discovering innovations for the future, Berklee graduate Casey Murray (of Corner House) forges a creative musical path as a rhythm and tune player on the cello. Visit Casey's website.
