Sound an Echo - Nordic Fiddling Workshop

LEBANON — In Sound an Echo, Rachael Kilgour and Sara Pajunen create and perform modern, minimalist arrangements of old songs that have stood the test of time. Kilgour is an award-winning songwriter whose sincere and lyric-driven work ('a heartfelt slice of indie folk' [Billboard]) has been heard at Lincoln Center and The Sundance Film Festival. A classically-trained violinist studying contemporary improvisation, Pajunen is a sound artist, composer and an acclaimed progressive practitioner of Nordic folk music with "extra elusive appeal..." (fRoots). Sound an Echo is interested in bringing new life to the old and remembering how to sing together again. 

The duo will perform an intimate concert in UVMC’s Bach Room recital hall. Pajunen will also teach a fiddle workshop focusing on her Finnish roots. 

Sound an Echo will appear at the Upper Valley Music Center at 8 South Park Street in Lebanon on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. The fiddle workshop is at 5 p.m. For more information and for advance tickets go to or call (603) 448-1642.
