New England Celtic Arts will present Canadian Celtic/folk ensemble Ozere, at One Longfellow Square in Portland on Tuesday, May 16; at Green Church Concerts in Mexico on Wednesday, May 17; at Old South Congregational Church in Farmington on Thursday, May 18; and at the Chocolate Church Arts Center in Bath on Friday, May 19. Curtain at 7 p.m.at all locations other than the Chocolate Church which is 7:30 p.m.
 
A 2016 Canadian Folk Music Awards nominee Ozere takes inspiration from classical string quartets and world folk bands. With its unique instrumentation — violin, cello, mandolin, bass and occasional vocals — it can do both at once. Fiddler Jessica Deutsch’s compositions bridge her upbringing as a chamber musician and her experience playing many styles as a side-woman, including Celtic, bluegrass, and old-time American, as well as folk and world music.
This band takes you on a journey, from knee-slapping reels that emit all the joy of an Irish pub session to solemn suites inspired by the Middle East and back to lively folk traditions.
