10 String Symphony

10 String Symphony

Saturday, 5 June 2021, 8.00pm

Described as “The newest and most promising voices in Americana” by NPR, 10 String Symphony is a collaboration between Grammy-nominated fiddle player Christian Sedelmyer and acclaimed songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Rachel Baiman.

Rachel Baiman (fiddle, banjo, vocals)
Christian Sedelmyer (fiddle, vocals)

Take ten strings, add two compelling voices and one shared sense of social justice, and what you’ve got is a dynamic and quietly authoritative duo in the best tradition of Guthrie and Seeger. Christian Sedelmyer and Rachel Baiman are artists firmly rooted in the old-timey Americana tradition, but with musical explorations that carry them fearlessly into the present moment, creating songs and sound worlds that are immediate and compelling. These are musicians whose prime inspiration is our world and how we live in it. Through their musicianship, they engage with life, art, nature, and global challenges in ways that are variously warm, humorous and thought-provoking. They are champions of change, and though just two in number, their impact is massively amplified by their brilliant use of technology and skilful arrangements. These are truly musicians of our time.

Tune in online, 26 May–11 June. Tickets cost €10 (booking fees may apply) and we encourage everyone to support their local venue if you can.
