Rockfish Valley Community Center Coffee House Concert with Alex Caton & Pat Egan. Friday, February 15. Alex Caton and Pat Egan met in the late nineties while both living in Asheville, NC. They quickly formed a close friendship and musical partnership that combined their mutual love and respect for traditional music of Ireland and the Appalachian Mountains. Like earlier immigrants from Ireland and Great Britain, these ex-pats from across the pond chose to settle in musically rich areas along the Appalachian Mountains.They brought aspects of their own cultural and musical heritage with them but kept a keen ear and open mind to learning new styles.
The culmination of Alex and Pat’s years of dedication to the traditions of Irish and old time music and their chemistry together for close to two decades of playing as a duo can best be appreciated by hearing them perform live. Their sound is magical. Pat’s rhythmic drive on the guitar coupled with Alex’s subtle and lyrical fiddling will transport you. Perhaps the most captivating of all is hearing Pat’s warm voice coupled with Alex’s harmonies.
The show starts at 7:30pm. Cover: $7 members, $9 non-members. Refreshments will be available.Listen and learn more at http:// www.alexcaton.com. Submitted by Ashby Brown.
