There’s nothing like live music and this group is as alive as it gets.
Coming to Pioneer Masonic Lodge in Somerset, home of the new Somerset Pioneer Lodge Concerts, will be one of the most talented and exciting groups on the Rhode Island music scene – The Gnomes.
This talented group fuse its dynamic folk-rock edge with original tunes and a wide-ranging repertoire that spans the globe — Celtic, Scandinavian, Eastern European, Asian, African, Caribbean, Klezmer, and Native American — bringing you a sound that will touch both your heart and your feet! They combine their varied and extensive musical backgrounds into arrangements that have been described as "exotic, fresh, and unique." Group members include Cathy Clasper Torch, (violin/fiddle, erhu, piano, cello), Phil Edmonds, (Irish whistles, button accordion), Peter Breen, an accomplished and versatile bass player and singer, Mike Fischman, (guitar, mandolin, banjo), and Matt Demick (percussion/drums).
