Many-Strings – Chris & Jamie Burns at the La Jolla Community Center
April 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Celtic Songs and Ballads. Enjoy a delightful mix of Irish and Scottish songs with American versions that immigrants enjoyed in their newly adopted country. Through these tunes we can embrace the optimism and humor of Irish-American and Scots-Irish ballads and poetry. Let’s share their love of life, homeland, and freedom together.
Chris and Jamie Burns are Many-Strings. Jamie performs on a custom hammered dulcimer and Chris accompanies her on guitar and keyboard. Their instrumental music is a delightful mix of Renaissance, Celtic, American and classical melodies. The rich interaction between their instruments creates a sound that is simultaneously upbeat and melodic. Jamie is inspired by the traditions of folk and Irish music, including Turlough O’Carolan. Chris’ contributions reflect the diversity of the classical world along with his love for instrumental music.
