The Moxie Strings 2018
No Strings Attached
An electric cello, an Irish drum, and a violin with an extra string walk into a bar…that’s not a joke. That’s the packing list for The Moxie Strings, an energetic instrumental trio that puts a fresh, enticing spin on Celtic and Americana music. Though rooted in tradition, they stretch their instruments to entertain audiences of all stripes. For example, cellist Alison Lynn has performed with Kanye West, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Gaelic Storm. In The Moxie Strings her bandmates are violinist Diana Ladio and world music percussionist Fritz McGirr, who studied in Ireland with bodhran greats Tommy Hayes and Jim Higgins. “The Moxie Strings mix chops with heart” — Current Magazine. Don’t fiddle around — these top-notch instrumental wizards are sure to dazzle Anchorage audiences.
The Moxie Strings is presented by Anchorage Concert Association.
