Orkney fiddler and photographer Louise Bichan sets out on a musical journey between her native northern Scottish isles and coast-to-coast Canada, in the footsteps of her late paternal grandmother, Margaret, née Tait (1925-2008). With a dilemma of the heart to solve, Tait, herself a beautiful singer, spent six months in Canada in 1950, before returning to Orkney to wed.

Now carving her own path in New England’s vibrant music scene, Bichan is set to release her second record, The Lost Summer this spring. She takes to the road with Conor Hearn playing guitar, Brendan Hearn on cello, and Ethan Setiawan on mandolins, to present an evening of lively fiddle tunes from Scotland and beyond, weaving through stories of connection, to people, nature, the past and the possibility of the future.

Seating and bar open at 7 p.m., and the show begins at 7:30. This event is indoors.

A note from the Foundry — Parking is limited at the venue so please use the three public parking lots in Town. One is across from the Post Office, one is behind Berkshire Bank and the other is just off Main Street. They are clearly marked.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
