HANNEKE CASSEL feat. Mike Block, Cello and Christopher Lewis, Guitar

Presented by The Heptunes Celtic Heritage Series in Association w/ The Newburyport Chamber Music Festival.

When Hanneke was in her first year at Berklee, her friend brought her to the Newburyport waterfront to busk. It has taken the Oregon native almost 15 years to return, although she has made Boston her home since she enrolled at Berklee. She has been so busy fiddling around the globe that we hardly have the opportunity to keep up with her.
