Searson Concert

Irish/Celtic

Join us on Saturday, June 1st for an evening of spirited fiddling, energetic dancing, and gorgeous harmonies. For over a decade now, Searson has toured the world with their unique blend of high energy fiddling, passionate vocals, and intricate dance step dancing. Touring across Canada, the US, and Europe, their passion for music and Celtic roots shine through and connects with audiences in a memorable way. Searson has maintained strong roots in the tradition they grew up in while reflecting eclectic states. They have released ten full length albums and in 2015 filmed a brand new national series for the Canadian Broadcasting Company called “Still Standing.” At the core of Searson are Colleen and Erin Searson, sisters who hail from the Ottawa Valley, Ontario, Canada. Their spirited live shows feature Colleen on fiddle and Erin on piano and tenor guitar, interspersed with the incomparably rich sounds of sibling vocal harmonies and both sisters “pounding the boards” with Ottawa Valley step dancing. Their talents are complimented by Kian Byrne, a multi-instrumentalist (acoustic & electric guitars, bass, mandolin, fiddle, percussion) and singer-songwriter from Kansas City. Formerly a member of The Elders, and heavily influenced by Celtic, reggae, soul and funk music, Kian rounds out the band in a way that makes it sound bigger than your typical trio and more eclectic than words can express. Together, this talented group performs sets that feature their original style of “Canadian Celtic Pop”, which includes a mix of traditional and original instrumental and vocal selections.
