Ep. 44: Rayna Gellert

Rayna Gellert is an Old Time American fiddler and singer-songwriter with deep roots in American traditional music that has led to her collaborating with artists such as Sara Watkins, Abigail Washburn and Loudon Wainwright III.

I ask Rayna about keeping folk music alive and the links between old time and celtic trad. We also talk about her latest album ‘Workin’s Too Hard’ – a collection of original and traditional songs.

Rayna is touring Northern Ireland at the start of February at the following venues:

Wed 1 Feb: Strule Arts Centre, Omagh
Thu 2 Feb: Bangor Castle, Bangor
Fri 3 Feb: Island Arts Centre, Lisburn
Sat 4 Feb: Roe Valley Arts Centre, Limavady
Sun 5 Feb: Crescent Arts centre, Belfast
