Mike Block opens
Concert starts at 8:00 pm.
- Hanneke Cassel is an excellent player with a level of versatility that enables her to move between musical styles with great ease, and a sense of creativity that pushes the boundary of a straight traditional sound without trampling all over it. Irish Echo (June 2014)
- She is already a rising star in the Celtic skies . . . her musical ideas are savvy and sophisticated, but her throaty, gusting style is deeply banked in the Scottish and Cape Breton traditions. Boston Globe
- . . .
- Mike Block has a pedigree that few young musicians today have. He studied with the incredible cellist Yo-Yo Ma, whom he counts as not only a mentor but also a friend. Mr. Ma performed at Mike’s wedding to Hanneke Cassel (a fabulous fiddle player); how many people can say that? Suze Uttal, No Depression
- vital, rich-hued solo playing New York Times
- a true artist . . . a sight to behold Salt Lake City Deseret News
