Toronto-based folk trio, Beneath the Ice will be in Guelph on Friday January 11 2013 for a performance at the St. David and St. Patrick Church.
Described as “folk music from the future”, Beneath the Ice twist almost traditional folk tunes into epic tales, winding through time signatures and times in history. Featuring Katie Avery (fiddle), Emilyn Stam (piano, fiddle) and Helena Frecker (guitar, bouzouki), their detailed arrangements and diversity in styles will keep any audience captivated and grooving to their unusual beat.
Respecting where this music comes from, they feature some of their favorite traditional tunes but also compositions by friends around the world, and, of course, some band originals. Their arrangements have been called as full as an orchestra while being at the same time tight and groovy, yet breathable and open sounding.
It is rare for these musicians to find themselves all in the same place at the same time. With Katie in Whitehorse, Emilyn touring all over the world, and Helena completing her medical residency in Toronto, the planets need to align just right to get them all together. Don’t miss this rare chance to see them in action!
