DELAWARE, OH – Called “one of the most impassioned folk-fiddlers you’ll ever hear,” David Greenberg and musical partner Chris Norman, praised by critics as “the finest wooden flute player in the world,” will be the second performers in this year’s Ohio Wesleyan University Performing Arts Series.

Their concert will emphasize traditional folk music, incorporating flutes, violins, pipes, keyboards, and voice. Playing together for more than a decade, the duo’s latest CD is “Let Me In This Ae Night,” a collection of Scottish and baroque music “delivered with blazing musicianship.”
