Hanneke Cassel
Fri, May 8, 7:30 - 9:30 pm
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
"She is already a rising star in the Celtic skies…her musical ideas are savvy and sophisticated, but her throaty, gusting style is deeply banked in the Scottish and Cape Breton traditions." -- Boston Globe
"...elegant, graceful…Cassel’s tunes capture the mixture of sadness and hope found in much Scottish and Irish music and give it a fresh West coast spin." -- Dirty Linen Magazine
"...the rhapsodic quality of Cassel’s ballads or slow airs evinces a soul’s fully expressed quest …Cassel’s rhythms are tenacious, and they weave through a set of reels with serpentine grace." -- Boston Herald
"...the sound of Cassel’s fiddle is mature, it also exudes spunk, which makes her music playful and dance-inducing." -- Fiddler Magazine
"One of the most talented and fun-loving young fiddlers you could ever hope to meet! This is fiddle music played with great stylistic integrity and personal flair – definitely a joy to listen to!" -- Alasdair Fraser
The Shedd is pleased to welcome Hanneke Cassel back to the Jaqua Concert Hall. Influences from Scotland to China, along with grooves and musical innovations from the hip Boston bluegrass/Americana scene, fuse together to give Hanneke a uniquely American approach to Scottish music. She creates sounds on the cutting edge of acoustic music, while retaining the integrity and soul of the tradition. Hanneke tours regularly with Baroque/Celtic group Ensemble Galilei, and has performed with the Cathie Ryan Band, Cherish the Ladies, Alasdair Fraser, and Matt Glaser and the Wayfaring Strangers. She has performed and taught across North America, Europe, New Zealand, Australia, China, Korea, and Kenya. She has released 7 CDs, from 2001's My Joy to Calm The Raging Sea (2007), For Reasons Unseen (2009), and Dot The Dragon's Eye (2013).
