"Alana and Leigh Cline performed twice at Burlington Public Library's Central Branch: once in August, as part of our Lunchtime Summer Concert Series, and then again in late September, where they gave a talk on the history of Celtic music in Canada that included performance elements as part of Culture Days. Both times, Alana and Leigh drew strong crowds to the Library for programs that had not been done here before, and put on a strong presentation that was very well received by the audience. Alana and Leigh are both very engaging performers, and very easy and professional to work with. I was very happy with their performance and presentation, and would not hesitate to hire them again."

Alana & Leigh are experienced in presenting workshops, and specialize in performances and workshops comparing different Celtic fiddle musical traditions. Two workshop options are:
Celtic Music in Canada & Abroad:
A workshop that looks at various Celtic fiddle music styles, and can be customized to have a more Canadian focus or more of a world view, with a particular focus on Cape Breton, Irish and Scottish music. The histories/backgrounds and performances of musical examples of each style are featured.
Music From the Time of Robbie Burns:
Focusing on the time of poet/writer Robbie Burns (1700s), this workshop explores a Golden Age of fiddle music occurring during that era, and the interactions between Burns' writing and lyrics and fiddlers/composers and their music.
