An Evening of Celtic Harp & Cello With Rachel Clemente and McKinley James
December 10, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$20
Join New England based pedal and traditional Scottish harpist Rachel Clemente, a graduate of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow with a bachelor’s degree in traditional Scottish music and winner of Princess Margaret of the Isles Clàrsach Competition (USA) in 2021, and traditional and classical cellist McKinley James, a graduate of The New England Conservatory who studied with Yeesun Kim of the Borromeo Quartet and who currently studies at McGill University’s Schulich School of Music in Montreal, Quebec, for a captivating evening in the intimate setting and superb acoustics of the Music Loft at Linden Lea. Both musicians bring a great love of celtic music to this new collaboration after being paired for the Ministry of Folk’s online Birthday Celebration event in April 2021. Along with their solo careers and classical endeavours, Rachel performs in her duo with bagpiper Dan Houghton while McKinley is a founding member of the band NIght Tree.
Rachel and McKinley have performed as a duo for the Brattleboro, Vermont Dance School and will be presented at the Boston Celtic Music Festival in early 2022.
