ANNALIVIA returns to the Nelson Town Hall on June 17, 2011  at 8:00 PM.

Admission is $12/$9(senior, youth)

Check out their website for a live version of Murphy’s Shadow performed 11/4/2009 in Peterborough, NH.

At the cutting edge of acoustic and traditional music, Annalivia fuses old and new world sounds to create an authentic new sound, both steeped in tradition and alive with new energy, innovation and originality. Drawing from the musical traditions of Appalachia, Cape Breton, Scotland, England and Ireland, the members of Annalivia also write their own material, including inventive, quirky fiddle tunes and lushly arranged songs. Annalivia is made up of seasoned musicians who have toured with the likes of Cathie Ryan, John Whelan, The Glengarry Bhoys, Dewey Balfa, and Adrienne Young.

The members of Annalivia – Liz Simmons, Flynn Cohen, Emerald Rae, Brendan Carey – Block and Stuart Kenney are equally at home playing a set of traditional Scottish tunes as they are performing a ballad from the Appalachian mountains. All this they achieve with grace, style and an abundance of youthful energy!

“With a wealth of individual talent on display and so much to absorb, there is no doubt that [Annalivia] will be listened to again and again.”
