Rachel Reeds is thrilled to host an evening of music at Club Passim to mark the release of her debut album, 'Sparkjoy'. Produced by acclaimed fiddler, Hanneke Cassel, the album is rooted in the traditions of Cape Breton and Scotland and presents driving arrangements of original and traditional tunes. Rachel will be joined by the full album cast: Andrea Beaton (piano, fiddle), Hanneke Cassel (piano, fiddle), Natalie Haas (cello), Yann Falquet (guitar), and Katie McNally (fiddle) and a few other very special guests.
Fiddler Rachel Reeds is a familiar face at sessions, camps, workshops, and house parties around New England. She has played for dances at the Canadian American Club of Watertown and DEFFA, taught at the inaugural Cape Breton Weekend at Pinewoods Camp, and has been a session and workshop leader for the Boston Scottish Fiddle Club. She served on the organizing committee of BCMFest (Boston’s Celtic Music Festival) from 2011-2014, and has been a frequent performer at that festival.
