Eloise & Co for TapRoot Sessions Women in Roots Series


Eloise & Co for TapRoot Sessions Women in Roots Series

Eloise & Co for TapRoot Sessions Women in Roots Series Saturday, January 22, 7pm to 9pm Dewey Hall, 91 Main Street, Sheffield, MA 01257 Tickets $20, Proof of Vaccination Required Contact: taprootsessions@gmail.com, 413 429 1176 Seating is limited, masks and proof of vaccination required at the door. TapRoot Sessions Women in Roots music series seeks to highlight the contribution of women to the traditional music scene, provide performance opportunities for women artists, and inspire future generations of girls and women to participate and lead in the folk community. Eloise & Co. features the combined creative force of two of the country’s most sought-after acoustic traditional musicians, Becky Tracy and Rachel Bell. These two, sometimes playing as a duo and other times joined by one of several powerhouse backup players including Owen Morrison, Bethany Waickman, Rachel Aucoin, and Andrew VanNorstrand, crank out dance and concert music with unbridled energy and soaring beauty. Becky Tracy: fiddle, octave fiddle, vocals Rachel Bell: accordion, piano, vocals. Originally thrown together at a gig where Becky led the contra dance portion of the evening and Rachel led the French dance part of the evening, they have continued to fuse these two elements into their concerts and dances, as well as adding songs and original compositions to the mix. Their first recording, “More, Please” was released in July of 2018, and as its name suggests, they are already dreaming of the next recording. “It would be difficult to overstate the sheer joy experiencing Eloise & Co. brings. It exhibits my favorite combination of exuberant, even virtuosic playing with loose precision—a favorite oxymoron—and earthy, vulnerable vocals. Having recorded a great deal of Celtic, acoustic, Americana, et. Al. Over the years, 'Eloise's' qualities make its performances instantly accessible.” —Alfred Grunwell, recording engineer and sound technician This Concert is supported by a grant from the Sandisfield Local Cultural Council.
