Sutter, MacKenzie performing in NYM Oct. 23

Musicians Ross Sutter and Laura MacKenzie will be in concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 23 at New York Mills Regional Cultural Center.

Sutter has built his reputation with fresh interpretations of Irish, Scottish, Scandinavian and Northern European songs, and with his unique repertoire of children's music. He has toured Europe several times, most recently in fall 2006. He has performed on radio, television and at festivals all over the Midwest and works regularly in schools teaching the songs and folk dances that he has collected over the years. He plays an impressive array of instruments -- guitar, bodhran, button accordion, dulcimer, bones -- but is best known for his singular baritone voice.

MacKenzie performs music from Ireland, Scotland, England, central France, northern Spain and Minnesota on a dazzling array of flutes, whistles, pipes, concertina and voice. She has been lauded as a "Celtic music wizard" by the Minneapolis Star Tribune and a "High priestess of Celtic music" by Minnesota Public Radio. Laura has learned from many noted tradition bearers on both sides of the Atlantic, and has herself been recognized as a master folk artist by the Minnesota State Arts Board.
