Notorious features guitarist Larry Unger and fiddler Eden MacAdam-Somer.

Camden — Folk duo Notorious will return to the Camden Library Coffeehouse Thursday, May 1. Guitarist Larry Unger and fiddler Eden MacAdam-Somer will perform at 7 p.m. at the downtown library; admission is $8, $7 for senior citizens and students.

The performance will feature dazzling fiddlework on traditional American, Celtic and Eastern-European tunes and songs, swing, blues, classical music and the group’s original compositions. The duo is a continued favorite at the Coffeehouse for their sparkling and exhilarating performances.

MacAdam-Somer and Unger offer sweet vocals and virtuosic fiddling coupled with driving rhythm and snappy guitar solos. Unger is not only a performer who sparks nationally renowned bands, but also a composer of countless fiddle tunes and lilting waltzes. They have been played and recorded by musicians around the world and can also be heard in the Ken Burns documentary, “Our National Parks.”

Versatile young violinist MacAdam-Somer’s classical and jazz background merges with his driving style to push the envelope towards swing, blues and Gypsy modes. Notorious has been a featured performer at such festivals as Falcon Ridge, Wheatland, Festival of American Fiddle Tunes, Eastbourne International Festival, the Savannah Folk Festival, Pinewoods and the Augusta Music Festival. The duo will play the monthly Belfast Flying Shoes contra dance Friday night, May 2.
