New World String Project
February 18, 2024 | 10:00am - 5:00pm

New World String Project performs Celtic, Nordic, and American traditional and original music on an exciting variety of exotic instruments. 

The New World String Project presents a lush blend of extraordinary instruments and heartwarming music in the Celtic, Nordic and American folk traditions.

It features John Weed (fiddle), Aryeh Frankfurter (nyckelharpa, fiddle, and Celtic harp), Lisa Lynne (cittern, Celtic harp and percussion), and Stuart Mason (guitar, bouzouki).  These four highly skilled and well-known multi-instrumentalists — two veteran duo acts — have joined forces to create an exciting weave of traditional world music.

Ancient and modern sounds mingle freely on Swedish nyckelharpa, Celtic harp, fiddle, guitar, cittern, bouzouki, and vocals with traditional ballads newly arranged.
