					Tim FitzPatrick & Amy Basse ~ Dynamic Fiddle and Guitar Duo

                                   Individually, Amy Basse and Tim FitzPatrick
                                   turn heads — Amy with her energetic, passionate
                                   fiddle and sweet, honest voice and Tim with his
                                   driving guitar and his smooth, lonesome voice.
                                   Together, Amy and Tim delight listeners with
                                   their unique blend original material, classic
                                   country and folk songs, elegant waltzes, and fiery
                                   fiddle tunes from both sides of the Atlantic
                                   A self described “reformed Classical violinist,”
Amy Basse was captivated by the fiddle playing of Mark O’Connor at a festival
appearance in the eighties. Since directing her energies on the fiddle, Amy has
performed on stage with Lori McKenna, Aoife Clancy and Robbie O’Connell, Tom
Rush and others. She also fronts her own band, Amy Basse and the Grasshoppers.

Tim FitzPatrick has been a part of the Massachusetts Bluegrass scene for several
years. He has also branched out into Celtic and folk music, and performs with a
number of local bands. He can also beard singing harmony on Tracy O’Connell’s
recent CD, Durango Red. In any setting, listeners appreciate his warm vocal
delivery and solid rhythm guitar playing.

“Whether they're playing driving jigs and reels or poignant Hank Williams or Carter
Family songs, Tim and Amy win over audiences with their love of the music they
