Maura Shawn Scanlin Band at The Stage

Date: 01/20/2024

Time: 1:30 pm

Two-time US Scottish National Fiddle champion Maura Shawn Scanlin and her band will stop by WTJU for a live session at The Stage to which you are invited. You can catch them later that evening at Albemarle CiderWorks for a concert sponsored by our friends at the Blue Ridge Irish Music School.

This is a free event, open to all. You can also listen to on the radio (91.1 FM) or on-line, and even video stream it at WTJU’s Facebook page or YouTube channel.  But concerts always sound better with you as part of the studio audience.

Boston-based fiddle player and songwriter Maura Shawn Scanlin is gaining notoriety among the Celtic and Acoustic music scenes across the country. Her playing, hailed for its inventiveness, fluidity, and tone, brings together influences from Ireland, Scotland, and the American South, where she grew up. Touring actively with her duo Rakish and string quartet Rasa String Quartet, Maura has also shared the stage with many cornerstone musicians in the folk music world including Seamus Egan, Maeve Gilchrist, Hanneke Cassel, and Judy Collins. Maura is a 2-time U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion, a Glenfiddich Fiddle Champion, and is touring for the first time under her own name, following the release of her debut full-length solo album, released in May 2023. Her band features Conor Hearn on Guitar (Rakish), Adam Hendey on Bouzouki (The Fire), and Julian Pinelli on Fiddle (Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band, The Foreign Landers).
