Folk Duo Ari and Mia in Concert
October 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$20.00
Come hear New England’s Americana sister act, folk duo Ari and Mia, perform music that honors the sounds of Appalachian cottages, rural dance floors, and urban concert halls. Their own compositions cross paths with older traditions making for a captivating sound.
Ariel Friedman is a multi-genre cellist and composer. A winner of the Women Composers Festival of Hartford’s 2020 call for scores and a recipient of New England Conservatory’s 2018 Alumni Award, she is steeped both in the music of American roots traditions and a broad range of classical repertoire as both a performer and composer.
Mia Friedman is a virtuosic fiddler and singer as well as a composer and educator. Her song “Across the Water” won the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the folk category, and she was the 2006 New Hampshire Highland Games Scottish Fiddle Champion.
“Ari & Mia blend a traditional rootsy grounding with a clear background of classical training. Their own works are soothing and fresh, tasteful and accomplished. This duo is taking the classical study of a conservatory program and bringing it alive in folk touring circles.”
