The musicians of Ulster Landing will take you on a tour of several Celtic nations! You’ll hear rousing Irish jigs, soulful Scottish strathspeys, and strange and wonderful tunes from Cornwall, a Celtic region in the far southwest of England. Songs about lost love, bell-ringers, mining, and the joys of beer will round out the evening’s festivities.

Karen Burciaga (fiddle, voice) fell in love with Scottish music as an undergrad at Vanderbilt University. Karen moved to Boston to pursue a Master’s degree in Early Music Performance at the Longy School of Music. She has researched and presented concerts at a variety of museums, historical houses and concert halls. An avid dancer, she enjoys Scottish, English, Renaissance and contra dance. She’s now the fiddler for Newpoli, an award-winning group specializing in southern Italian folk music. Karen maintains a private teaching studio and plays for weddings and events across New England.

Matthew Wright (guitar, bouzouki, voice) spent several years impersonating a classical guitarist while playing bass guitar in an original rock band in the state of Maryland. He attended the Peabody Conservatory as an undergraduate and studied classical guitar. Upon moving to Boston in 2000, he took up the lute seriously and studied at The Longy School of Music, earning a Master of Music degree. He is an active performer and arranger of music ranging from Renaissance to rock. Matthew teaches guitar at Brimmer & May and Belmont Hill Schools, and is a contributing writer to the Lute Society of America.
