Julie and Aaron are both independently releasing piano-centered albums, featuring traditional dance music styles and entirely original work. Julie's "Dark Sky, Bright Stars," and Aaron's "Men Don't Cry," are virtuosic, rooted in both traditional and classical music. Special guests include Andrew VanNorstrand and McKinley James.
"Aaron's gift as a tunesmith pairs beautifully with their craft as a performer, defining and articulating an entire world of feelings with never a note misplaced." - Hollis Easter
"Aaron's playing is muscular, virtuosic, and rooted deeply in both classical and traditional music."
Aaron draws on a rich background of musical traditions including New England contra, classical piano, and music and dance traditions from the British Isles, Scandinavia, eastern Canada, and the Appalachians. Well known throughout the Northeast for their performances with Frost and Fire, Giant Robot Dance, and The Turning Stile, Aaron brings exuberant energy, creativity, and a thoughtful and open heart, whether percussive step dancing or playing tunes on concertina.
