Allison de Groot and Tatiana Hargreaves (touring 12th – 24th November 2019)
Drawing on the roots of old time and bluegrass, this exceptional duo features two gifted young musicians who are already leading lights in the new generation of American roots music. Talented Canadian banjoist Allison de Groot has made a name for herself as a member of Molsky’s Mountain Drifters and The Goodbye Girls.
Tatiana Hargreaves is a phenomenal fiddler based in North Carolina, who has toured with luminaries including Gillian Welch and Bruce Molsky, and played on Laurie Lewis’ Grammy nominated album The Hazel And Alice Sessions. Whilst paying homage to the best of Appalachian traditions, the duo also reflects on and pays tribute to the diversity of American roots music.
Alongside classic tunes, they perform lesser-known American fiddle and banjo songs from the likes of African-American duo Nathan Frazier & Frank Patterson, bluegrass pioneer Alice Gerrard and centenarian Arkansas fiddler Violet Hensley. Together, Allison and Tatiana create a scintillating, foot-tapping sound, with powerful songs and beguiling tunes.
