Celtic trio performs Tuesday
LEE CENTER — Arise & Go, a Celtic Trio from Ithaca, performs at St. Joseph’s Parish Center, 5748 Stokes-Lee Center Road, on Tuesday, March 14 at 6:30 p.m. for the Tuesdays in Lee Center series.
Both the show and refreshments are free.
The group will be performing a variety of Irish, Scottish, Cape Breton and French-Canadian music on pipes, whistles, fiddles, and guitar. The band has just recorded its debut self-titled EP which will be available at concerts and online. Samples can be heard now at www.ariseandgo.org
The trio is made up of Michael Roddy (pipes & whistles) from Utica Ellie Goud (fiddle) from Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada and Tim Ball (guitar), from Newfield.
Roddyis also a 20-year member of the Mohawk Valley Frasers Pipe Band having played and competed all over the northeast. During this time with the Frasers, Roddy has diversified his musical arsenal by learning the Irish uilleann pipes, Scottish small pipes, Scottish border pipes, and whistles which now adds variety and color to the groups sound.
Goud, grew up immersed in the Atlantic Canadian fiddle style, was classically trained on several instruments but was always pulled toward the Celtic sound so prominent in Eastern Canada. She learned a great deal of Irish, Scottish, and Cape Breton music in Saint John before moving to Montreal for School. It was here she developed her love of French-Canadian and Quebecois music which she brings to Arise & Go, adding to the breath of the Celtic styles it performs.
Ball not only plays guitar but is an accomplished and versatile fiddler. He has been a staple of the contra dance and Irish music scene in Western New York for the better part of a decade. Tim has toured widely with contra dance bands such as Tempest and Tunescape and has more than 10 years of experience playing Irish and American fiddle music. His knowledge of Irish music and his all-around musicianship make his guitar playing a driving force in Arise & Go’s music.
