The East Georgia State College Vision Series concludes the 2013-14 season with the dynamic Celtic Duo featuring fiddler Dana Lyn and guitarist Kyle Sanna on Tuesday, April 15, at 11 a.m. in the Luck Flanders Gambrell Center Auditorium. Sponsored by the EGSC Vision Series, a privately funded initiative that seeks to bring programs of cultural and intellectual enrichment to East Georgia State College and its constituency, the presentation is free and open to the community.
These talented performers will delight the audience with their energetic and powerful performance. Lyn and Sanna first met at a traditional Irish music session in New York City and soon discovered a shared interest in classical, jazz, and experimental music, as well as a deep admiration for Irish music.
Both are active participants in Brooklyn’s eclectic music scene as arrangers, composers, players and improvisers. They have brought their music to clubs, festival stages and concert halls throughout the U.S. and Canada, including Carnegie Hall and Saturday Night Live.
They have taught workshops at the Old Songs Festival, the Catskills Irish Arts Festival, the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival, Wellesley College, the University of Eastern Carolina and West Virginia’s Augusta Heritage Center.
The duo has collaborated with renowned Irish musicians Kevin Burke, Cillian Vallely, Martin Hayes and Susan McKeown and with some of today’s greatest virtuosos, including Edgar Meyer, Yo-Yo Ma and Chris Thile as well as with actors Vincent D’Onofrio and Ethan Hawke.
