After completing a masters degree in traditional Irish performance, the wonderful and accomplished Ellen Gibling is returning to Halifax! She will perform some of her fresh harp tunes! It is sure to be a beauty of a set.

The Swallowtails make sounds that fall somewhere between classical, folk, and Celtic. Based in Halifax, NS, they perform folk-inspired tunes and original arrangements of traditional fiddle music with energy and joy. Anna Wedlock, fiddle; India Yeshe Gailey, cello.
