Friends of Sutter's Fort and the Sacramento Pioneer Association invite you to experience the extraordinary musical talents of the New World Strings Project within the walls of one of Sacramento's oldest settings. These four highly skilled and well known multi-instrumentalists -- two veteran duo acts -- recently joined forces to create an exciting weave of traditional world music blending Celtic, Nordic, & American roots.

Hear the ancient and modern sounds of the nyckelharpa, harp, fiddle, guitar, cittern, bouzouki, and other instruments mingle freely with singing from Stuart Mason as he shares his unique arrangements of ballads as old as the hills where he was born.


NWSP brings together four mighty players who weave a shimmering sonic tapestry from Celtic, Nordic, and American folk traditions. Fiddler John Weed and guitarist Stuart Mason also play together in the long-running Celtic band Molly’s Revenge. And Celtic harp master Lisa Lynne, who gained international renown via recordings and tours with the label Windham Hill, often performs in a duo with NWSP-mate Aryeh Frankfurter, an expert on harp and Swedish nyckelharpa.

Together, these intrepid string explorers take audiences on a thrilling, melodically exuberant musical ride.

John Weed (Fiddle) - Aryeh Frankfurter (Nyckleharpa. Harp) - Lisa Lynne (Cittern, Harp) - Stuart Mason (Guizouki, Guitar)
