Sap Line
Summer Concert Series: Sap Line
City Hall Park

With their sound firmly rooted in the musical traditions of New England, Appalachia, Scotland, and Ireland, Sap Line blends those traditions into a cohesive palette to work in harmony together.  Bringing an astonishing number of instruments to the stage, Sap Line adds a fresh and youthful flavor to everything they do, from energetic jigs and reels to lyrical three-part harmony singing, captivating sean-nós dancing, and foot-stomping Old Time favorites. 


The band name, Sap Line, comes from the Vermont lingo of tapping trees to make maple syrup. Together, the band taps into their respective skillsets and histories to create a sound built on the long line of musicians that came before them, and in turn carrying the legacy of that music forward to share with audiences on their August 2024 Tour. 


Sap Line is Old Time fiddler Fiona Stowell, New England piano and Old Time banjo player Emmett Stowell, Scottish fiddler and tenor banjo player Owen Kennedy, Irish fiddler and dancer Fern Tamagini-O’Donnell, and singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Grace Martin.
