Direct from Dublin, Ireland -- a dance troupe of world champion Irish step dancers together with a sensational eight-member traditional Irish band and vocalist.

Dublin Irish Dance is an exhilarating company whose members have performed throughout the world with Riverdance, Michael Flatley's Lord of the Dance, and Celtic Woman. The all-star cast brings to life the epic tale of Celtic culture, carrying its traditional melodies and steps to the New World with a gala celebration of Irish Music and Dance.

The evening’s program, Stepping Out, provides an extravaganza of sights and sounds of Irish Culture. The journey begins in rural Ireland, prior to the Famine, in kitchens, barns and fields. As the Great Hunger closes in, the people look west, across the ocean, to New York City.

Mingling with immigrants from around the globe, the Irish congregate in dance gatherings, some bound for the Appalachian Mountains where ancient Irish melodies fuse with African rhythms, creating American tap dance and early roots music. The journey leads us to the present moment, celebrating the incredible evolution of Irish traditional dance and music, and showcasing the new pioneers who will define the new standard of traditional Irish music and dance.

As performed in sold-out concerts at Tanglewood and the BBC Proms (2015) – and just a couple of days before their Carnegie Hall Concert. “A Night at Bach’s Coffeehouse” presents Apollo’s Fire and director/harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell in music of J.S. Bach and his most admired colleagues. Inspired by the lively coffeehouse concerts led by Bach in 18th-century Leipzig – fiery strings, colorful recorders and a dizzying harpsichord solo… an evening of rampant virtuosity!

This performance includes the planned Carnegie Hall Program: Brandenburgs no. 4 & 5, Telemann’s Don Quixote Suite, Handel’s Terpsichore Chaconne, and Sorrell’s acclaimed arrangement of Vivaldi’s La Folia (“Madness”) which the group performs from memory

.

“Apollo’s Fire has forged a vibrant, life-affirming approach to the re-making of early music… European ears have begun to appreciate the blend of intellect and artistry concocted by harpsichordist Sorrell and her colleagues. Their seductive vision of musical authenticity is guided by a shared commitment to honest emotional expression, rooted in period style yet never its slave.” -- BBC Music Magazine

“Visually charged, minutely stage-managed musical theatrics from Jeannette Sorrell and her irrepressible team of musicians… Utterly sensational, every phrase a Baroque curlicue dipped in gold and then embellished still further. Charismatic and boundlessly energetic… this is Baroque music in its unbuttoned state.” -- TheArtsDesk, London

“Under the inspired direction of Jeannette Sorrell, Apollo’s Fire has become one of the pre-eminent period-instrument ensembles, causing one to hear familiar baroque material anew.” -- The Independent, London

“Apollo’s Fire is one of the brightest lights of period-instrument playing in the United States… arguably the most distinctive in sound and memorable in style. Its trademark qualities: expressive subtlety, exuberance and passion.” --Classical Music Magazine, London

“This swaggering version… makes the most of the variety of instrumental color Bach so exhilaratingly put on show. Two harpsichord concertos BWV 1052 and 1056 are both brilliantly played, as is the keyboard part in the Fifth Brandenburg, by Sorrell.” -- The Sunday Times, London (reviews of Bach Concertos CD)

“These excellent young musicians take a highly gestural approach to phrasing and bring across their music with an exuberant musicality, like wind through a forest. Easily one of the most enjoyable concerts of the season.” -- The Boston Globe

Northeast Kingdom native Jennifer Hartswick is one of the most refreshing new voices of the twenty-first century. A consummate performer, she thrills audiences as a vocalist, trumpeter, composer, lyricist and educator. She is equally at home singing soul, funk, pop and R&B, but her passion, without question, is jazz.

Born into a musical family, Jennifer began playing at the age of 4. In her early teens she became infatuated with the sounds of Oscar Peterson, Art Tatum, Clifford Brown and Ella Fitzgerald. After a stint living on the upper west side of Manhattan, she attended the Hartt School of Music where she studied the intricacies of the jazz idiom with Nat Reeves, Steve Davis, Jackie McLean and many other highly prominent jazz artists.

At the age of 20 Jennifer was afforded the opportunity to join Trey Anastasio's new band, having already recorded on Story of the Ghost (Phish, 1998) and One Man's Trash (Trey Anastasio, 1998). She embraced the idea with open arms and began touring with him in 2001. In her seven years of touring, she has shared the stage and studio with such legends as Carlos Santana, Dave Matthews, The Rolling Stones and Herbie Hancock to name a few.

In 2003 Jennifer released her own debut album; a soulful, horn-laden party entitled Fuse. “I always want an album to sound fresh,” says Hartswick. “It's amazing to see what happens when you put great musicians in a room together with no boundaries.”

KCP Presents is proud to welcome Jen Hartswick back to the Kingdom. As a special treat, Jen will perform in St. Johnsbury with musicians Nick Cassarino & Christian McBride. Virtuoso bassist Christian McBride is a six-time Grammy winner and one of the most recorded musicians of his generation. He has performed and recorded with Wynton Marsalis, Carly Simon, Bruce Hornsby, James Brown, Queen Latifah, Pat Metheny, Herbie Hancock, Diana Krall, Paul McCartney, Sting, and many others. Singer/guitarist Nick Cassarino plays with the funk/soul band, Nth Power and has played with the Jennifer Hartswick Band and Big Daddy Kane, among many others.
