Maivish at the Spanish Ballroom at Glen Echo (with Nils Friedland calling).
This year, we'll dance to the marvelous Maivish: Adam Broome on guitar, Jaige Trudeau on fiddle, and Matt Olwell on flutes and percussion. The group began as a collaboration between American fiddler, Jaige Trudel and British born guitarist, Adam Broome who have been performing together as a duo for nearly two decades. Previously, these two formed the core of Crowfoot. Matthew has been performing and teaching as a dancer and percussionist at festivals and theatres across North America and Europe since 1996. After years of crossing paths on the folk circuit, these three performers finally have come together to cultivate a sound that is uniquely their own. Their dynamic music, haunting melodies and driving rhythm will thrill you for the whole mini-weekend!
