Hal Parfitt Murray (fiddle, mandolin, vocals) is Scots by birth Australian by upbringing, and Ale Carr (cittern) is Swedish. The other half of the band, Andreas Tophoj (violin/viola) and […]

Headliners, award-winning married couple, Sierra Hull (on her third visit to the city) and Justin Moses (making his debut here) play with a flow and intensity that quickly convinces us their love of […]
