Jeremiah McLane Trio at Summervale!


This week at Summervale we are welcoming the Jeremiah McLane Trio to the stage for an evening of Franco-Celtic music. Jeremiah McLane, on accordion, was the founding member of both The Clayfoot Strutters and Nightingale, two bands that have helped shape the sound of traditional New England roots music. Owen Marshall, on guitar and bouzouki, is a founding member of Irish trio The Press Gang, and has accompanied many of traditional Celtic music’s top performers. His music has appeared on NPR’s “Thistle and Shamrock,” and BBC television. Corey DiMario, on bass, is a founding member of the string band sensation Crooked Still, and is one of the most sought after accompanists in the acoustic music scene, having performed at major festivals and concert venues across North America, Europe and Australia. The trio began as a CD project called the Grinding Stone that was put together by McLane in 2015. That record was praised for its original take on old world tradition to include many moods, countries, colors and rhythms. As Jeremiah puts it, “what we’re playing isn’t technically 'traditional music' but to many it will sound that way. In fact that’s our goal: to make sounds that would fit into a traditional scene in France, Ireland, Quebec or Scandinavia.” This week will be a Summervale you don’t want to miss!
