Fiddling supergroup Childsplay, with Irish singer Karan Casey, is a who’s who of fiddlers from the United States and the Celtic world. They will be celebrating 30 years of touring by bringing their band of 14 fiddlers and 9 all-star instrumentalists, dancers and singers back to Symphony Space for a concert on Friday November 18th at 8 pm. All the fiddlers in Childsplay perform on instruments made by violinmaker Bob Childs of Cambridge, Massachusetts. In addition to virtuosic fiddling, ranging from all-Ireland fiddle champions to members of the Boston Symphony, Childsplay features a wide range of outstanding instrumentalists including the exquisite voice of Karan Casey, known for her many years of touring with Solas and her collaborations with the likes of James Taylor, Bela Fleck and Tim O’Brien.
