Rachel Eddy--Multi-Instrumental Talent and Soulful Singing
Friday, January 10 • 6–8 pm
Rachel Eddy hails from West Virginia, where she grew up steeped in Appalachian music and dance. Known throughout the world for her dynamic, emotionally powerful performances and virtuosic playing on the fiddle and banjo, she is now based in Alexandria VA, and brings her multi-instrumental talent and soulful singing to the Alexandria After Work stage in a rare local performance. She’s performed alongside the likes of Tim O’Brien, Bruce Molsky, and Uncle Earl, invigorated the Swedish old-time scene after a years-long residence in Stockholm, and currently tours with The Early Mays (Pittsburgh) and The Kolodner Quartet (Baltimore). Don’t miss this special concert from one of old-time’s most respected and electrifying musicians!
