Ulster Landing brings you a rousing salute to the Irish with a musical celebration on St. Patrick’s Eve. You’ll hear traditional reels, jigs, polkas, and waltzes, beautiful slow airs, plus upbeat Irish songs that will get your feet tapping in no time. Raise your voices and toast St. Paddy in style!

Karen Burciaga (fiddle, voice) fell in love with Scottish music as an undergrad at Vanderbilt University. She went on to explore Scottish, Irish, old-time, and other folk fiddle styles. Karen moved to Boston to pursue a Master’s degree in Early Music Performance at the Longy School of Music. With her folk/early music group Seven Times Salt, 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 the fiddler for Newpoli, an award-winning group specializing in southern Italian folk music, and she appears with Ulster Landing regularly.

Matthew Wright (guitar, bouzouki, and voice) spent the years 1987-2000 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, 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 Celtic to Renaissance to rock. Matthew is the lutenist for folk/early music group Seven Times Salt.
