CUMBERLAND – Blackstone River Theatre, 549 Broad St., will present an evening of Scottish and Irish music featuring Jenna Moynihan & Màiri Chaimbeul, and Torrin Ryan, on Saturday, Oct. 5, at 8 p.m.

Blazing a trail along Celtic music’s historical pathways, U.S. fiddler Jenna Moynihan and Skye harpist Màiri Chaimbeul, both Berklee College graduates and accomplished composers, combine their passion for Scottish and Gaelic tradition with U.S., Irish, Breton and Swedish influences. They have performed at Celtic Connections in Glasgow, Scots Fiddle Fest in Edinburgh, Brian O’Donovan’s St. Patrick’s Day Celtic Sojourn, and in France. Their debut album, “One Two” was released in 2017.

Torrin Ryan is from Attleboro, Mass., where he began playing music at a young age and discovered traditional Irish music on the tin whistle at age 9. After hearing the uilleann pipes for the first time, he decided to learn how to play them himself. Since then, in Ireland, he has won five All-Ireland medals across Tullamore, Derry, and Ennis, and is the 2013 All-Ireland Uilleann Pipes Slow Airs champion. He performs at many sessions in New England and in 2018, Torrin was the recipient of a grant from the Southern New England Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program in order for him to teach Irish music and history to several apprentices and further the art of the session in New England.

Admission is $16 in advance and $18 on the day of the show. For reservations or information call Blackstone River Theatre at 401-725-9272 or visit www.riverfolk.org .
