Neil Pearlman is internationally known as an innovative pianist, immersed in the music of Scotland and Cape Breton. His unique style is enhanced in organic and thrilling ways by his deep knowledge of jazz, funk and other styles. He is also a mandolinist and stepdancer.  Neil has performed solo, and has toured and recorded with the well-known Shetland fiddler Kevin Henderson, the Katie McNally Trio, Alba’s Edge, Party of Three, and the quartet Fàrsan. His podcast TradCafe comprises over 60 interviews and duos with top contemporary musicians.  

Lillie Pearlman is a fiddler and dancer; she also plays piano and electric bass. She grew up surrounded by Scottish and Cape Breton music and dance, and has collaborated in many other traditional styles.  She has toured the U.S, Mexico, and Canada with her rhythmic, vibrant fiddling and exciting compositions. In addition to playing with HST, she was creative co-leader (with Neil) and fiddler for Alba's Edge, a cutting edge Scottish-Latin-Funk quartet, and fiddler for innovative contra dance band Party of Three since 2011.
