Our Monthly Concert:
Hanz Araki and Friends, A Winter Celebration
- Dec. 5, 2013
Hanz Araki - vocals, flutes, whistles, bodhrán
Colleen Raney - vocals, bodhrán
Johnny B. Connolly - button accordions
Cary Novotny - guitars, vocals
Award-winning flautist and singer Hanz Araki is joined
by an ensemble of extraordinary talent for a concert aimed at capturing
the warmth of fireside story-telling for the winter's long nights. Joined
by singer Colleen Raney, Johnny B. Connolly on the accordion, and guitar
player Cary Novotny, new light is shone on both instrumental music and
vocal arrangements to perfectly suit the season.
Although Araki's musical beginnings are in traditional
Japanese music -- six generations on his father's side -- it is the
music of his Irish mother for which he is best known. He learned much
of this music from the vibrant Irish music scene in Seattle and honed
his craft touring for over 20 years in the US and abroad.
The Raney family is a pillar of the Irish community in
Seattle, and Colleen grew up in its very heart. Learning the songs of
Ireland, Scotland, and England as a second language in her childhood
home, she has proven to be uniquely suited to translate a lifetime of
traditional music into her own distinctive style, and has become a rising
voice in the Irish music world.
Johnny B. Connolly has risen to prominence as one of
the best and brightest button accordion players of a new generation.
Acclaimed albums, world tours, and collaborations with the biggest names
in the genre have helped establish Connolly as a definitive presence
in Irish traditional music.
Cary Novotny is a brilliant and influential acoustic
guitar player best known for his unerring rhythm and his finesse at
finger-style playing. One of the hardest working accompanists in the
genre, Novotny continues to provide a compelling soundscape to any project
of which he is a part.
