Duo Eamon perform tunes for fiddle and guitar in the instrumental dance tradition of Ireland, New England & Québec. Known for their pure fiddle tone and unique guitar voicings, Duo Eamon has been playing together every day since 2008. The interplay between these two consummate musicians is intimate, inviting, energizing.
Duo Eamon’s first CD was released in 2013, and the second, “L’Abri ~ The Shelter” will be recorded in the spring of 2015. The duo’s signature shines through both albums: fresh settings of traditional tunes—from “André à Toto” to “The Vicar’s Knickers.”
Centered in the Berkshires, Duo Eamon perform throughout New England and beyond, at pubs, cafés, festivals, markets, barn- and house-concerts. High-profile venues include the Fresh Grass festival (Mass MoCA, North Adams, MA) and the Roots Cellar at the Calliope House (Pittsburgh Folk Music Society).
Cassandra Cleghorn, Fiddle
Ten years ago Cassandra turned from her classical training to immerse herself in the music of Ireland, New England and Québec. Constant session playing and study with monster fiddlers including David Boulanger, Eric Favreau and Kevin Burke has shaped her sound that combines a lyrical sweetness with a rhythmic drive.
Jeffrey Levine, Guitar
A guitarist’s guitarist, Jeffrey founded the Buffalo Guitar Workshop in the 1970s and has evolved his style ever since. Blending his classical roots, his love of jazz and his passion for Celtic music (shaped by work with Québecois masters Guy Bouchard and Paul Marchand), Levine creates his trademark extraordinary voicings.
