Papilio gave us an evening of unplugged acoustic music at the Evergreen Theatre which was pure delight. The members of this group are all accomplished musicians. The group consists of Colin Jeffrey (playing fiddle / vocals), Jennifer Publicover (on flutes / bodhran / vocals), Phil Schappert (playing guitars / bouzouki / vocals). They have a wide repertoire of traditional music including Celtic tunes from Scotland, Ireland, France and Spain (Galicia and Esturias regions in particular) as well as pieces from Scandinavia. Here is the link to Papilio’s image gallery with a beautiful Swedish waltz entitled “Josefins Dopvals” playing over it.

Papilio did an excellent job in sharing with us the joie de vivre (and occasionally the angst) of these different cultures in their interpretations of the pieces for this extremely appreciative audience. The pure tones of the unamplified instruments filled the venue with fluid sweet sounds that transitioned seamlessly and naturally from tune to tune through the sets.

Thank you, Papilio, for giving us all a truly enjoyable evening. We hope you will come back to the Evergreen Soon.
