Åarhus Gallery is very happy to welcome back, the exceptional, William Pint and Felicia Dale, to once again dazzle and delight listeners with their masterful interpretations of music of the sea. Traditional and contemporary, evocative, moving and sometimes haunting, this Seattle-based duo will take the audience on a lyrical voyage around the world and ne’er will they long for home, as they sing along, hear the wind in the rigging, and pine for love in sultry harbors.
Along with Williams energetic guitar style and evocative voice, one of the attractions of their performances is Felicia’s hurdy-gurdy, an instrument whose origins date back to the 12th century (basically a hand cranked violin with a keyboard) which, in Felicia’s practiced hands, can gently roll like a deep sea swell, or wail like bagpipes and send you ‘round the briney Horn.
Dirty Linen Magazine says,
“William Pint and Felicia Dale rank among North America’s most exciting interpreters of music based in the traditions of the British Isles and France… unconventional but spine-tingling… unique and mesmerizing ”
Sing Out! Magazine says,
“…You won’t regret setting sail on a musical journey with Pint and Dale”
Pint and Dale have performed together around the world for over twenty years now, collecting songs from the British Isles, the coastal regions of France, the Canadian Maritimes and the U.S. Nine albums to date showcase their powerful harmonies and dramatic instrumental work including guitar, mandolin, fiddle, penny whistle, and hurdy-gurdy.
Come and share life at sea with them for a few spellbinding hours, Saturday June 23rd at 7:30pm. Suggested donation $10, refreshments will be served, and CD’s will be available for purchase.
