Grosse Isle w/ Morcava at The Cedar Cultural Center

March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Grosse Isle

$24 Advance, $29 Day of Show.  Comprising Irish uilleann piper Fiachra O’Regan, Québec fiddler/singer Sophie Lavoie, and guitarist André Marchand, Grosse Isle takes traditional Irish and Québécois traditional music, blended with Lavoie’s “lithe and masterful” compositions. Their choice of songs will “captivate the most casual listener.”  The opening act will be Morcava, a trio of Carmen Pasquerella, Ava Sackaroff, and Morien McBurnie.

Sponsored by Celtic Junction Arts Center.  Presented by The Cedar Cultural Center.


The traditional music trio Grosse Isle was born out of the “absolutely magical” collaboration between three exceptional musicians from Quebec and Ireland (The Irish Music Magazine). Together, Sophie Lavoie du Lac-St-Jean (fiddle, piano, vocal), André Marchand the legendary (guitar, vocal), and Fiachra O’Regan, Irish champion (Irish bagpipes, whistle, banjo) shine with their rich and enveloping music. These musicians all have a national and international reputation as a duo mainly in the case of Sophie & Fiachra and within several groups for 40 years as far as André Marchand is concerned (La Bottine Souriante, Les Charbonniers de l’Enfer and others).

Special Guests Morcava

Morcava, a trio rooted in Minnesota’s rich Irish music tradition, is spreading its wings. Set to delight audiences with their youthful energy and musicality are Carmen Pasquerella (whistles, flute), Ava Sackaroff (woodwinds, harp, bodhran), and Morien McBurnie (guitar, bouzouki). Morcava weaves traditional Irish sounds with rhythmic arrangements that showcase their technical prowess and emotional depth. Morcava is poised to capture hearts and imaginations.
