Boston-based trio will bring fiddle music to Skye

"CARTHAGE — New England Celtic Arts will present the Boston-based trio Matching Orange on Sunday, March 13, at Skye Theatre Performing Arts Center.

The 3 p.m. performance is the launch of Sunday Series at Skye's 2011 season.

Whether playing for contra dances, jamming at a local pub or giving a concert, the band members offer a refreshing approach to traditional fiddle music.They combine a repertoire of traditional and original material with a brotherly stage presence.

Making up Matching Orange are Eric McDonald on guitar, mandolin and vocals; Eric Eid-Reiner, piano; and Brendan Carey Block, fiddle. They take full advantage of diverse musical backgrounds, with extensive training in folk, classical, jazz and other traditions.

The band released its debut, self-titled CD in January."
