Karen Reed and Crossbow
Karen’s concerts are filled with fiery fiddling that is synonymous with the “Reed family” name and is combined with surprising musical arrangements fueled with unexpected twists and turns. Karen Reed and Crossbow have a unique blend of textures drawn from fiddling genres that combine Classical and Celtic motifs interwoven with the essence of Canadian fiddling at its best. The band includes Karen Reed on fiddle, Trina Nadeau on cello, Jake Butineau on keys, and features champion step dancer, Devan Ballagh also on fiddle, bodhran, mandolin. The band doesn’t withhold passion or skill to round the edges with unpredictability and precision as they bring their magic to the stage with creativity and their own innovative blend complete with a variety of accompaniment styles punctuated with unique rhythms and solos. When you add a step dance champion to the mix, the sky is the limit. Musical arrangements by this multitalented band are an awe-inspiring, refreshing approach to the traditional fiddling genre.
Ben Rogers will be opening the show and as a new up and coming passion filled musician, you won’t be disappointed!!
