Next Stage hosts Maura Shawn Scanlin and her band on Jan. 14

Next Stage Arts and Twilight Music present fiddler, singer, and songwriter Maura Shawn Scanlin and her band at Next Stage, 15 Kimball Hill, on Sunday, January 14, at 7:00 pm.

Scanlin plays Celtic and acoustic music across the country. Her playing, hailed for its inventiveness, fluidity, and tone, brings together influences from Ireland, Scotland, and the American South, where she grew up.

Touring actively with her duo Rakish and the Rasa String Quartet, Scanlin has also shared the stage with many cornerstone musicians in the Celtic music world including Seamus Egan, Maeve Gilchrist, Judy Collins, and Hanneke Cassel.

She is a two-time U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion and a Glenfiddich Fiddle Champion, and she is touring for the first time under her own name, following the release of her debut full-length solo album. Her band features Conor Hearn on guitar (Rakish), Adam Hendey on bouzouki (The Fire), and Julian Pinelli on fiddle (Peter Rowan Bluegrass Band, The Foreign Landers).

Tickets are $20 in advance, $24 at the door, and $10 for access to the livestream. Advance tickets are available at Next Stage will provide a beer, wine, and cocktail cash bar. For information, call 802-387-0102.
