Brother and sister Asher and Alison Perkins were born into a musical family in Detroit, Michigan. Both siblings have won multiple awards on their respective instruments; Asher on concertina and button accordion, and Alison on fiddle, tin whistle and singing. Starting at an early age they were guided by some of the finest Irish musicians from Ireland and North America. They are both members of the successful Michigan band Finvarra’s Wren. With the band they have played such venues as the critically acclaimed Ark in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and the Goderich, Ontario Celtic Festival. They have also played and taught at many concert halls, pubs and festivals across America.
This is the first time Asher and Alison have ever performed as a duet without the rest of the band! Don’t miss this unique, completely acoustic concert that will be sure to delight you.
