Duo present an eclectic mix of traditional and contemporary

Tania Opland and Mike Freeman appear in concert as part of the Otter’s Holt House Concert and Sayward Valley Folk Music Society Concert Series.

Since 1995, Tania Opland and Mike Freeman have been touring the world together with a unique and eclectic mix of songs in several languages and music played on more instruments than can be counted on two hands. Their shows feature traditional and contemporary material from many cultures, as well as original compositions.

For those who have not previously attended one of their concerts and those who have seen them perform, the audience is in for a real treat. The duo’s performances are presented with wit and a style guaranteed to provide an evening of great music and entertainment for all ages.

Dividing their time between Suquamish, Washington and Inistioge, Ireland, Opland and Freeman return to Vancouver Island after a five year absence for two very special concerts.
