6:30 PM Magical Strings Concert with Celtic Dancers
With dancing hammers and pulsating strings, Philip and Pam Boulding create the distinctive music of Magical Strings, described by The Washington Post as "warm, graceful and sonically gorgeous." Celtic harps and hammered dulcimers are colorfully augmented by pennywhistles, concertina, valiha (Malagasy harp) and storytelling. Since 1978 they have drawn a loyal following worldwide, captivated by their energetic arrangements of Celtic music and their own engaging compositions, intertwining Celtic roots with classical and world music influences. Practically a household name in the Northwest, Magical Strings has toured throughout the United States, Canada, and Ireland. In Japan they toured twice with their family quartet, performing many sold-out concerts from Okinawa to Sapporo. As a duo Philip and Pam opened for Dan Fogelberg in 30 major U.S. cities, sharing their music with enthusiastic crowds of up to 15,000 a night. Following the tour they were invited to record with him on River of Souls and then a second album, The First Christmas Morning. Since 1980 Magical Strings has recorded 18 albums on Flying Fish/Rounder, EarthBeat Records, and their own label, Magic Hill Music. Their more recent CD featuring the family quartet, Where Dragons Dance, appears on Allegro's Alula Visions label. Their three newest releases appear on their own label: Dances and Dreams Best of Magical Strings, which celebrates 30 years of their career featuringtheir favorite tracks from the first nine albums; Musings, a solo harp all-original album from Philip; and Celtic Yuletide Live!, featuring energetic live performances from their 2009 Yuletide season. Their music has received a growing stream of international airplay and acclaim over the years. Islands Calling, was named "their best album yet" by Billboard Magazine in 1996, and features several guest artists including Alex de Grassi and Hawaiian slack-key virtuoso Keola Beamer.
