    notloB Folk Concerts is pleased to welcome back two alumni, Eric McDonald (who on 11/2/07 opened for and so impressed the Rowan Brothers they invited him to sit in for most of their set) & Katie McNally, who initiated notloB's series at the Jackson Homestead (5/16/09).

    Katie McNally and Eric McDonald found each other in high school as like minded musicians in the Boston traditional music scene. Both sought to functionally push the envelope of traditional music, using original music and modern sensibilty to add new color to the familiar style of tunes that have been passed down for generations. Over the years and many impromptu musical moments, this musical relationship congealed into a cohesive unit. Now the music, while based heavily in the Scottish tradition, is infused with influences from two diverse and educated musical backgrounds, where carefully arranged traditional pieces seamlessly give way to original compositions. Having always been two of the busiest players around, these two have amassed a reputable list of experience, currently including the scottish powerhouse Cantrip (McDonald) and the fiddle supergroup Childsplay (McNally). This practiced musicianship shines in the melodic texture and murky tones that linger long after a McNally/McDonald performance.
