Squire Jacob Special Event

Simple Gifts combines tradition with innovation and thereby creates some of the finest in folk music today. Linda Littleton and Karen Hirshon switch with ease among fiddle, mandolin, banjo, recorders, bowed psaltery, hammered dulcimer, baritone fiddle, guitar, and percussion as they deliver their music with a rare intensity and contagious enthusiasm. Lively Irish jigs, down-home American reels, hard-driving Klezmer freilachs, and haunting Gypsy melodies spice the mix with the distinctive rhythms of Balkan dance music, the lush sounds of Scandinavian twin fiddling, and original compositions.
