Nationally recognized Violinist Maura Shawn Scanlin and accomplished working guitarist Conor Hearn unite to form “Rakish," drawing on the music they grew up with and performing it with their own unique slant. With live performances akin to concert music, Rakish explores tunes and songs from Irish and American folk traditions in a way that reflects their shared interest in and love for chamber music and jazz.
Rakish have performed on Front Row Boston, Brian O’Donovan’s Burren Backroom Series, and they can be heard on broadcasts of WGBH’s “A Celtic Sojourn.” Their self-titled E.P. was released in 2018 in collaboration with Nine Athens Music. Find it here!
