All-girl Celtic/Folk quartet coming to Bellows Falls

BELLOWS FALLS - The Boston based all-girl band LongTime Courting will deliver their high-energy traditional music from Ireland and beyond, inventive arrangements, and evocative harmonies on Friday, Jan. 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Immanuel Episcopal Church in Bellows Falls.

Take four individually accomplished traditional musicians and singers with fresh attitudes. Combine them, and you have the rich, soaring four-part vocal arrangements and high energy Irish jigs and reels that are Long Time Courting. Bringing together the talents of Sarah Blair on fiddle/vocals, Liz Simmons on guitar/vocals, Shannon Heaton on flute/vocals, and Ariel Friedman on cello/vocals, this Boston-based band shares a love of traditional Irish and American music as well as contemporary material. They bring elements of these various genres to their traditional repertoire in a way that is seamlessly innovative and fun.
