Described by The Living Tradition as "the new face of Scottish fiddling in the USA", Katie McNally grew up steeped in the vibrant Scottish and Cape Breton music community in Boston and is the 2009 New England Scottish Fiddle Champion. In this show, Katie will be teaming up with two of the most innovative voices in acoustic music in the US, genre-bending pianist Neil Pearlman and Madison-based violist Shauncey Ali. Katie's evocative and melodic playing combined with Shauncey's powerful harmonies and counterpoint, all anchored by Neil's rhythmically driving piano accompaniment, creates a uniquely arresting take on traditional music.
Katie has performed at venues such as the Newport Folk Festival, The Freight and Salvage, Wolf Trap, Symphony Space, Benaroya Hall, and various folk venues throughout North America and the UK. Performing regularly with all-female Celtic band Long Time Courting and New England fiddle supergroup Childsplay, she also joined world-renowned Galician bagpiper Carlos Núñez on his tour of North America in 2012. Featured on the cover of Fiddler Magazine's Winter 2014 issue, Katie is in high demand across the country as a performer, fiddle teacher, and dance musician.
