The New Hampshire Folk and Fiddle Fest
Featuring: The Spain Brothers, The Hanneke Cassel Band, Green Heron
Liam and Mickey Spain are second generation singer / songwriters from the mill town of Manchester, NH, concentrating on original compositions as well as traditional and contemporary folk songs. Their father, Mike Spain, was a well known folk singer performing Irish and American Folk songs throughout the New England area.
Effervescent and engaging, Boston-based fiddler Hanneke Cassel’s fiddle music fuses influences from the Isle of Skye and Cape Breton with Americana grooves and musical innovations. The Hanneke Cassel Band features Boston-based fiddler and bandleader Hanneke Cassel on fiddle, Jenna Moynihan on 5-string fiddle/vocals and Keith Murphy on guitar/vocals.
The music of Green Heron stretches across the entire folk landscape. Old-time, folk, bluegrass, country, Irish and blues music are all represented as the band brings the back porch to the stage. Featuring Betsy Heron (formerly Green) on fiddle, banjo and vocals, and Scott Heron on guitar, banjo and vocals, the duo has been sharing New England stages together since 2016.
