Much-loved, Boston-based ensemble Palaver Strings joins with longtime friends The Gawler Sisters, on a double bill. From New England’s rolling hills and lush forests, to its craggy shores and rock-filled fields, the highly accomplished group of musicians come together in a cross genre celebration inspired by this diverse landscape. The program ranges from home-grown folk music, to the lush romance of Dvořák’s impression of the New World; New England natives and new converts alike express their love of this land through music – its beauty, rich history, and rugged character.
