Nora Garver, Celtic Fiddler and Julia Weatherford, Celtic Cellist. Together we are StrathSpan!
Welcome to our website!
"Strath" is the Scottish Gaelic word for "valley". Julia and Nora both live in the Swannanoa Valley of North Carolina (Julia in the east end of the valley in Black Mountain, Nora in the west end of the valley in Asheville). Thus the origin of our duo's name referring to "spanning the valley". We play Scottish music along with Irish, Breton, Scandinavian, and other music which "spans" the Celtic genre, including our own original tunes.
