University School Teacher in Concert April 9 at ICHC

March 29, 2010

Myserk, an exciting new Milwaukee musical quartet, will perform in the Parlour of the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, 2133 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee, on Friday, April 9, at 7:30 p.m. Comprised of four innovative instrumentalists steeped in traditional music, Myserk includes University School of Milwaukee teacher Brett Lipshutz who plays flute. The other band members are Randy Gosa, Asher Gray and Devin McCabe.

 

The quartet draws from diverse musical cultures to create highly textured arrangements of traditional and modern tunes on flutes, fiddle, concertina, and guitar. Myserk balances an interest in the unconventional with a deep respect for the time-honored forms on which their music is based.

 

Lipshutz, a French teacher in the University School’s Upper School, has been involved in Milwaukee’s Irish music community for several years and has been playing traditional music for over 20 years. He released his first recording when he was 22. He has played at the All-Ireland Fleadh Ceoil and toured with the Trinity Dance Company. Lipshutz has taught and performed around the world including Paris, France where he taught flute and whistle at the Association Irlandaise. He and Gosa also perform as a duo and Lipshutz is involved in a number of other music projects.

 

Gosa has been a string musician since age 12. He has studied with several well-known musicians including Liz Carroll, Sile Shigley, Andy Irvine and Tony Nother, and has studied at the University of Limerick, Ireland. Gosa is an active ceili and set dance musician and performs in a duo with Lipshutz. He also teaches at the Irish Fest School of Music. Gosa is a graduate of Visual Arts and Celtic Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

 

Gray, who has been playing Irish music for over 10 years, was a founding member of two Milwaukee-based groups, Anam Ri and Cé. He has won numerous competitions at the Midwest Fleadh Cheoil and was the recipient of the annual Edward J. Ward Music Scholarship in 2000. He teaches at the Irish Fest School of Music.

 

McCabe has been playing music since he was 5 years old and has been involved in traditional music for over 10 years. He began fiddle instruction under Milwaukee native Ed Paloucek and Chicago fiddler Liz Carroll, and is self-taught on concertina, whistle and piano. He was a member of Anam Ri while still in his teens.

 

Admission to the concert is $10. For more information, call (414) 332-8521.
