Steelhead in the Riffles
'To be in the presence of their joyous musicianship, their humor and their exciting music, so full of passion for life, is to travel in the realm of pure delight' ---Ronnie Gilbert of The Weavers Flower & McLaren are two musicians who prove the old adage, 'The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts.' Each powerful in their own right, together they blast through the limits of musical boundaries. As instrumentaliists, vocaliists and songwriters, they let their imaginations run wild by combining fiddle, accordion, piano, guitar, mandolin and soaring vocals. Flower & McLaren don't perform tunes so much as take you on a marvelous musical journey, visiting the realms they inhabit, sweeping you up into their melodic and rhythmic reveries. Flower & McLaren respect the roots of the Celtic and Americana traditions bringing their musical expertise, humor, wisdom and hope to the stage, giving us a vibrant and satisfying journey into the Irish-American vein. 'String magician Robin Flower and keyboard-accordion player Libby McLaren clearly have a great time playing music....(They) are breaking ground with their novel fusion of Celtic, Oldtime and progressive folk music.' ---Dirty Linen Magazine '...a longstanding duo worthy of their place in folk music.' ---Holly Near.
