Joanna & Iain Hyde Cd Release Concert says
Brother and sister duo Joanna and Iain Hyde weave creatively and decisively through an eclectic musical landscape of Americana, Irish, bluegrass, and beyond. They merge these folk styles to create textured instrumentals and rich vocal harmonies on their upcoming debut album, "Green and Blue", in a way that speaks unmistakably of roots in Colorado and Ireland, as well as visits to places in between. They are thrilled to have their first CD release for this project at Swallow Hill Music.

With various awards to their names, Joanna (fiddle, vocals) and Iain (guitar, mandolin, vocals) grew up in a musical family in Colorado, traveling the state and country to share their music at festivals, house concerts, and various venues from their elementary school days onward. Brimming with curiosity and a sense of adventure for an array of styles, Joanna and Iain have forged a path of musical experience that includes classical, Texas swing, bluegrass, swing, Irish, Cape Breton, and classic American folk idioms.

Alongside a career in public policy and disaster recovery, Iain has composed, performed, and taught music throughout Colorado, the Midwest, and in Nashville, Tennessee. A recipient of the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation’s Graduate Arts Award, Joanna completed her MA in Irish Traditional Music Performance at the University of Limerick (UL) in 2014. She currently splits her time between Colorado and Ireland, following three years spent in Limerick studying Irish music as well as teaching at UL’s Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, and has performed throughout the US, Ireland and more broadly in Europe.

Joanna and Iain will be joined by special guest Tadhg Ó Meachair (Dublin, Ireland) of the award-winning Irish band "Goitse". Tadhg, an All-Ireland piano champion, has toured across Europe, North America, Africa and Asia, and features prominently on "Green and Blue" on both piano and piano accordion.
