An evening of pipes and strings featuring two duos well versed in the traditional music of Ireland and Scotland will be held at the Fountain Arts Building at Dublin School on April 8 at 8 p.m.

Will Woodson and Eric McDonald, specialists in traditional Scottish music, will join with Joey Abarta and Nathan Gourley, adding Irish music to the mix.

Woodson, on border pipes, wooden flute and tin whistle, and McDonald, on guitar, create their blend of traditional music mixed with the vibrant traditional music scene of their native New England.

Abarta and Gourley live and collaborate in the Boston area. Abarta has spent the last 10 years touring North America, Europe, and Asia, teaching and performing music on the uilleann pipes. Fiddler and guitarist Gourley started playing music at age five. He plays at concerts, ceilis, sessions and festivals in Boston and throughout the United States and Ireland.

Admission is $12 and $9 for seniors, youth, or advance purchase. Tickets can be reserved at www.monadnockfolk.org.

Parking is at William North Road, the north campus entrance.
