Earth Day Celebration with Patrick Hutchinson

Earth Day Celebration April 11th - Patrick Hutchinson with the Vox Hunters

Patrick Hutchinson is an internationally recognized performer and teacher of the Irish uilleann pipes, with nearly forty years of experience and an eclectic repertoire that encompasses both the traditional and the experimental. He grew up in Liverpool where he had his first lessons on the tin whistle, but learned to play the pipes in Canada, a student of the well-loved Toronto piper and teacher Chris Langan. He twice won the All-Ireland title in Uilleann Pipes Slow Airs, twenty-two years apart, most recently in 2014 in Sligo. He teaches pipes for the Comhaltas Boston Music School.

Hailing from the great state of Rhode Island, Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardi are seekers and singers of old songs, cultivators of local music, and chronic multi-instrumentalists. They are touted as strong tradition-bearers in their generation, and their genuine affinity for the music is evident in the emotion they draw from it. With a pair of oft-harmonizing voices tastefully garnished with fiddle, free-reeds, and tenor guitar, The Vox Hunters offer an all-natural connection to the living tradition of folk music. Their three mantras are: “Sing Local”, “Sing Often”, and “Roger Williams for President”.

All will performing indoors in the Farm's Great Room at Grace Note Farm.

This is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Celebrate the wonders of the natural world with us.
