Musicians bring their eclectic mix of music and song to Swaledale

Tania Opland and Mike Freeman.

Two musicians who describe themselves as playing ‘more instruments than any sane duo would travel with…’ will be bringing their eclectic mix of acoustic music and songs in several languages to Reeth Memorial Hall just after Easter, promising ‘a roller coaster ride across the continents’.

Tania Opland, originally from Alaska, and Mike Freeman, from Manchester, have been touring the world together since 1995.

They are accompanied by their hammered dulcimer, guitar, recorders, cittern, violin, Native American flute, ocarina, hurdy-gurdy and assorted percussion instruments.

Their show features material from many cultures as well as original compositions, all presented with wit and style – guaranteed to provide an evening of great music and entertainment for all, especially those seeking something a little off the beaten track.

The duo will be performing at Reeth Memorial Hall in Swaledale on Friday, April 21, at 8pm.

Tickets are £12 in advance, £14 on the door, under 16s half price.
