Powered by four of the brightest voices in a new generation of traditional musicians, Fàrsan unites song, dance and instrumental music from the Gaelic traditions of Scotland and North America. The result is a unique combination of sound and movement which delivers vibrant energy to every performance.
Màiri Britton, Elias Alexander, Katie McNally and Neil Pearlman each represent an engaging new take on their cultural traditions. Màiri's Gaelic song and stepdance repertoires have a foundation in her native Scotland but are heavily influenced by her current work teaching and researching song and dance in Nova Scotia. Katie's fiddling and Neil's piano and stepdance continue the strong connection between New England and Maritime Canada, both having grown up in the Scottish and Cape Breton music community that surrounds Boston. Elias brings an American flair to the Scottish border pipes, merging a love of the tradition with a wealth of new ideas.

“The new face of Scottish fiddling in the USA” (The Living Tradition),
Katie McNally has made waves in both the American folk music scene and
abroad since the release of her debut album, Flourish, in 2013. Katie
and her band traveled to Cape Breton last year to record her “The Boston
States” album with producer Wendy MacIsaac. McNally has curated a
collection of tunes that draws inspiration from raw, mid-century
recordings of Cape Breton fiddlers both in Nova Scotia and Massachusetts
and sculpted by the creative energy of the Boston acoustic music scene.
