AAFFM is proud to return the internationally acclaimed folk duo Four Shillings Short to Fiddler’s Green for a special Winter Solstice Concert – on the actual night of the solstice! The pair will ring in the winter with music, poetry and stories for the season.

Four Shillings Short perform traditional and original music from the Celtic Lands, Medieval & Renaissance Europe, India and the Americas on over 30 instruments from all over the world. They include hammered and mountain Dulcimer, mandolin, mandola, bouzouki, tinwhistles, recorders, Medieval and Renaissance woodwinds, Native American flutes, North Indian sitar, charango, bowed psaltery, banjo, bodhran, guitar, ukelele, doumbek, percussion, vocals and even a krumhorn.

The husband/wife duo of Aodh Og O’Tuama from Cork, Ireland and Christy Martin from California have been performing together since 1995, touring in the US and Ireland. These independent folk artists have 12 recordings, perform 150 concerts a year, and live as the troubadours of old traveling, from town to town playing at music festivals, theaters and performing arts centers, folk and historical societies, libraries, museums and schools.

Born in Cork, Ireland, Aodh Óg (pronounced, ayog) studied Medieval and Renaissance music in college. He received a music fellowship to study at Stanford University in 1984. He played in a group called Drivelling Druids before forming the group Four Shillings Short.

A multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Christy was born into a musical family. She played the sitar for 10 years, starting at the age of 16. Christy took up folk music in the ’80’s and has been playing hammered dulcimer since 1993. She was formerly in a band called Your Mother Should Know.

Join us at Fiddler’s Green for one of the most joyous special events of the holiday season.  Wassail!
