Celtic Musicians Sansone and Hoag in Concert on Chincoteague Island

The Chincoteague Cultural Alliance presents Maggie Sansone and Andrea Hoag in concert at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 20 in the Senior Center located on Church Street.

Maggie Sansone brings a unique beauty and vision to the ancient music of the Celts. Her albums ring with a Renaissance spirit, Celtic melodies, and a jazzy new crossover into what she calls "cool Celtic." It's a fusion of ancient sounds and modern sensibility, fueled by the innovative use of old and new instruments.  Sansone is known throughout the U.S. as a performer, producer and teacher of the hammered dulcimer. She has recorded nine albums including AFIM Indie winner, MIST AND STONE, and is author of eight music books.

Grammy Nominee, Andrea Hoag has performed at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, and at festivals, colleges, and folk clubs across the U.S., Scandinavia, and the British Isles. Hoag is one of North America's foremost performers of traditional Swedish music, and is a highly respected fiddler in several American, English, and Celtic styles.  “Call it a fiddle, call it a violin— in [her] hands it is simply a marvelous string instrument that fits into myriad traditions and fuels many cross-cultural fusions,” wrote Richard Harrington of The Washington Post in a review of Andrea’s 1999
solo/collaborative CD, Fire & Water.

Tickets are $18 at the door, $15 for advance purchase. Student tickets are $5.  Advance tickets are available online at www.ChincoteagueCulturalAlliance.org and at Egret Moon, H&H Pharmacy and Sundial Books. Seating is limited.  Advance Ticket purchase is recommended.

The Chincoteague Cultural Alliance is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization formed to enhance community life by fostering and promoting the growth and vitality of arts and culture on Chincoteague Island and Delmarva’s Eastern Shore.  The Alliance is the sponsor of the popular Second Saturdays Art Stroll on Chincoteague.
