Cairn to Cairn
Cairn to Cairn is an acoustic trio based in Ann Arbor, Michigan comprised of flutist/vocalist Kelly McDermott, guitarist/singer Terry Farmer, and bassist/percussionist/vocalist Rob Crozier. Originally formed in 2007 as a classical flute and guitar duo, Cairn to Cairn soon expanded to begin their exploration into traditional folk music and beyond. An amalgamation of three distinct musical personalities, Cairn to Cairn melds classical technique with rock ‘n’ roll, and folk songwriting with elements of improvised freedom. This band can rock out a bit, play northern sounds from Canada, adapt music of Native Americans, travel to the further reaches of Scotland, dig deep into the blues, or jam in a fashion not unlike the best jazz musicians. Never satisfied with the status quo, these talented musicians continue to look for the next cairn (a cairn is a pile of stones used as a marker).
