Across the Sea - traditional Irish music, Old-Time Appalachian & Gypsty Music with Pat Egan and Alex Caton.
We are delighted to have Irish duo Across the Sea - Alex Caton and Tipperary guitarist and vocalist Pat Egan - perform tonight at the General Store Cafe! Join us for some foot tapping, knee-slapping Irish Folk and Old-Time music by two very talented and world renowned Irish musicians. Pat Egan, a native of Tipperary, has toured extensively in the United States, Sweden, Norway, Holland, Germany and Scotland. He has also appeared on numerous television and radio programs in both the US. and in Ireland.
Pat grew up singing and playing, and has been a professional musician since 1985. He served his apprenticeship with the Dublin groups Old Bawn and De Min, and has since been a member of Idle Wall, and the Mayo-based traditional group Sheeaun. More recently, his performance on the internationally-acclaimed recording "Music at Matt Molloy's" brought his talent to much wider attention, and in 1994 he produced a highly regarded solo recording, "Songs for the Candle."
Fiddler, Alex Caton has been exposed to numerous styles and genres of fiddle music. Having grown up in Great Britain and the United States she has a unique personal approach to Irish and gypsy fiddle.
Some highlights of Alex's career includes performing with the internationally acclaimed Irish music trio Chulrua, taking master classes with Liz Carroll and James Kelly, and playing with Bruce Molsky, John Doyle, and Frankie Gavin. Alex also plays Irish fiddle with the Ryegrass Rollers, who released their first recording in the Spring of 2003 and recently formed an "up-and-coming" gypsy group, Las Gitanas, in Charlottesville, Virginia. Outside of performing, Alex teaches Irish fiddle at her home in Central
Virginia and at the Music Education Center. She also runs group fiddle lessons through the Blue Ridge Irish Music School.

Triology with Shiela Warner, Richard and Brooksie Edwards
They first met in 1998, when Sheila was a finalist in the Triangle Folk Music Society's first songwriting conetest. Over the next two years, they shared the stage at local coffee houses and showcases, until their fate as a triio wa sealed when they moved in aross the street from one another in June of 2000. They have been performing together ever since, developing a loyal following for their blend of swing and folk; standards and originals; and a cappella harmonies and solo performances. Their combination of three-part vocals and a range of songwriting styles makes for a show that is both memorable and diverse.
