Rakish

Boston, MA
Genre: Celtic
Rakish, comprised of world-class fiddler Maura Shawn Scanlin and dynamic folk guitarist Conor Hearn, performs an integrated mix of Irish and Scottish fiddle tunes, original compositions, and baroque music. From the traditional Irish tune Rakish Paddy, the name aptly suits the duo and their shared background in traditional Irish and Scottish music. “Rakish” itself suggests something strikingly unconventional in its appearance, and the two knowingly embrace this wealth of connotation in their music, drawing on the music they grew up with and performing it with their own slant.
