Gideon Freudmann

Back by popular demand, the Lebanon Public Library will be hosting a Fireside Concert February 24th at 7 pm with Gideon Freudmann’s Cello Bop!

 

The best word to describe Gideon Freudmann’s singular style comes from the name the artist uses for his performances and recordings: CelloBop. Using the electric cello for improvisational classical, blues, jazz, electronic, funk and folk music, Gideon imaginatively riffs on conventions and traditions. He loops and layers his sounds with pedals and amplifiers, sculpting orchestras out of thin air.

ARI & MIA

ARI & MIA

“Strikingly beautiful, distinctive and exhilarating, with expressive vocals that will find a way into hearts and minds” (No Depression), Ari & Mia reference the styles of Southern and Northeastern fiddle music and the early American songbook to create a realm where their own compositions cross paths with older traditions. Their stylish and sophisticated music honors the sounds of Appalachian cottages, rural dance floors, and urban concert halls. Combine this with their innovative approach to songwriting and the result is a captivating sound.

Together, the sisters have toured all across the U.S and Australia and are both graduates of New England Conservatory's cutting edge Contemporary Improvisation department. Both award winning songwriters, Mia’s song “Across the Water” won the 2010 John Lennon Songwriting Contest in the folk category, and Ari's song "Old Man" was a semi-finalist for the 2016 International Songwriting Competition. Their two previous albums, Land on Shore and Unruly Heart, ranked high on the national folk radio charts. Ari & Mia website bio-
