Faire May is a Wheeling-based folk music duo founded by friends Jariel Henthorn and Zac Gordon. They use a variety of well-known acoustic instruments to keep the traditions of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, and the Americas alive and growing.
On August 25th, Faire May will take you back to Colonial America by performing prevalent music from the period. The ballads and dances of Ireland, the somber and playful melodies of Scotland, the country and court dances of England, the spirituals of the Africans, the French minuet, and many other colorful traditions come together to form the music played so often in the thirteen colonies. Faire May will use authentic instruments and garb to paint a picture through the music of the heritage and life these early Americans held dear.
