16 THE VALLEY / ENTERTAINMENT MARCH 27-APRIL 2, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION Jane Rothfield and Allan Carr and The Vox Hunters take the stage at BRT CUMBERLAND – Blackstone River Theatre will present Jane Rothfield and Allan Carr and The Vox Hunters on Saturday, March 30, at 8 p.m., at Blackstone River Theatre, 549 Broad St. Award-winning fiddler Jane Rothfield and husband Scottish singer and guitarist Allan Carr have been playing their unique blend of traditional and original Appalachian and Celtic music for over 30 years. Carr, from Aberdeen, Scotland, grew up sur- rounded by the rich traditional music of the Northeast of Scotland. His Celtic/old time guitar style complements his traditional songs and all styles of fiddle tunes. Rothfield is a fiddler, clawham- mer banjo player and tune compos- er with deep roots in the fiddle tra- ditions of New England, Scotland and the American south and has numerous recordings to her credit. In their 30-plus years of making music together, Rothfield and Carr have performed throughout the British Isles and the U.S. They play roots music that is directly from the source while expanding on that tra- dition with newly composed songs and tunes. The Vox Hunters, Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardi, will present their repertoire of driv- ing dance tunes blended with an unorthodox collection of interest- ing songs, many specifically about Rhode Island history. They are touted as strong tradition-bearers in their generation, and their genuine affinity for the music is evident in the emotion they draw from it. Admission is $16 in advance, and $18 on the day of show. For reservations, call Blackstone River Theatre at 401-725-9272.
