The Lowlander Highlanders perfrom traditional jigs, reels, polkas, and aires, from the northern Appalachians on fiddle and drum.
Fiddle and drum - bones, spoons, jawharp, deer toe rattler etc, Beverley Conrad and Luke Glick have paired up to perform a wide variety of traditional folk and Celtic tunes from the northern Appalachians.
Band/artist history
Beverley is best known on the internet and in Pennsylvania as the Fiddlerwoman. She's been playing fiddle forever. Luke started off taking fiddle lessons but when he wanted to start playing gigs it seemed more reasonable for him to accompany Bev on drum. So he learned how to play that. He's a man of many talents and has since become adept at playing the bones, spoons, jawharp and other rhythm instruments. His most recent addition now is that of the octave fiddle. Each of these make a great combination to Bev's fiddle.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Yes! We do. We perform as strolling musicians at a great many festivals and events as well as host a Making Music Tent at the same. Our tent is filled with fiddles and drums and rhythm instruments of all sorts many of which we make. People are welcome to come in and try their hand at playing. We also give on the spot fiddle and drum, bones and spoon lessons.
Your musical influences
Bev learned a lot of what she does just by listening to the old time fiddlers in the northern Appalachian mountains where she lives. Luke is inspired by the Chieftans. He likes to sing too to the Dubliners and the Clancy Brothers. Both like Alasdair Fraiser, too.
What equipment do you use?
A fiddle - a good one - and a cheap one from Ebay that has been especially set up to play outside in inclement weather. The better to keep strolling. A tunable Irish (bodhran) drum, jawharp, bones made from real bones and wood and some hand made homemade log drums. We make these and found the logs as well as hunted the deer from which we got the hides to make the heads of the drums.
Anything else?
I like teaching fiddle and have a website setup for people to learn how to play it. It's at http://www.fiddlerwoman.com
