Celtic Trio plays Studio Live

Friday evening, July 10 at 8 p.m.

Three incredible musicians, Martin Nolan, Pierre Schryer and Adam Dobres will be performing Celtic music at Studio Live in Cumberland on Friday evening, July 10 at 8 p.m.

It is a rare and very special occasion when these three fine musicians get together to play music. Schryer makes a yearly trip from Ontario to Dobres’s home city of Victoria, while Nolan comes from Ireland every two years. Although the time between collaborations is long, when these exceptional artists do unite it is a high energy and magical experience for musicians and spectators alike. In 2013 they wowed the crowds at Islands Folk  Festival and Studio Live and we are all excited to have the chance to hear them play together again.

Nolan is an Irish uilleann piper whose energetic and passionate performing has taken him all over the world.

Schryer is one of Canada’ leading traditional fiddlers. He has established himself as a gem on the music scene among fans and fellow musicians and is a Juno nominee and Canadian Folk Music nominee.

For more than two decades Schryer has been touring across North America, the UK and Ireland headlining festivals and captivating audiences with his musical finesse, genuine warmth, and stunning technical ability. Over the last decade, Schryer has released six solo recordings on his own label, New Canadian Records.

Dobres is a highly accomplished guitarist with a natural ability to embody many styles of music.

He is equally at home with bluegrass, Celtic, jazz, country, folk, rock and blues. Dobres was a member of the well-known old time group, Outlaw Social and has also recorded and toured with Grammy nominee Toni Childs, including an Australian tour where they opened for the legendary Jackson Brown.

Seating is limited so get your tickets early through Bop City Records in Courtenay, Blue Heron Books, Comox and Rider’s Pizza, Cumberland. Any remaining tickets will be available at the door the evening of the performance. Studio Live is located at 2679 Beaufort Avenue at the corner of First Avenue. in Cumberland. The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20.
