SEAN DONALD - 5:30PM: The music Sean Donald plays has traveled a long journey and stood the test of time. The kind of music that has moved with its people, changing and evolving along the way but still retaining its depth and purpose. Sean plays the folk music of Ireland, Scotland, England and Southern Appalachia, all of which are rooted throughout many places and cultures. These are songs of the human experience, songs of love and loss, good times and hard, and these are also the songs that he writes. Sean is a multi-instrumentalist but plays primarily the guitar and the 5-string banjo in a number of different styles. He has learned a great deal on his own and from the generous musical communities he has encountered in his travels. https://seandonald.bandcamp.com BEN NESRALLAH - 6:30PM: Ben Nesrallah is a Montreal based multi-instrumentalist whose roots are firmly planted in Appalachian music traditions. Usually seen playing fiddle, mandolin and singing with The Noisy Locomotive, Ben is proud to have recently released The River — a collection of original and old-time tunes for solo banjo and voice. bennesrallah.bandcamp.com noisylocomotive.com
