Joe Walsh will perform with The Doty’s at the Norwood Village Green this week.

NORWOOD -- The Norwood Village Green Concert Series will present The Doty’s with Joe K. Walsh on Thursday, June 14 beginning at 7 pm.

Born and raised in Duluth, MN, Karl Doty is one of the most versatile bassists of his generation. Passionate about the musical idiom of the chamber orchestra, Karl is a founding member of the Grammy-nominated self-conducted orchestra, A Far Cry and enjoys frequent collaborations with groups like Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra of St. Luke's, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and New Century Chamber Orchestra.

Karl has shared the stage with Edgar Meyer, Väsen, Darol Anger, Mr. Sun, K2 and Morning Zephyr as well as with his wife, champion fiddler Liesl Doty, in their new duo: The Dotys. He has performed as a soloist with orchestras all over the country as well as at home and on national tour with A Far Cry.

Summer appearances regularly include performances with the North Country Chamber Players at the White Mountain Chamber Music Festival, Halcyon and Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festivals, with previous engagements at Ottawa Chamberfest, Verbier, Schleswig-Holstein, Newport Music Festival, Chautauqua and Skaneateles Chamber Music Festival. Karl received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the New England Conservatory of Music under the instruction of Don Palma and Jim Orleans. Karl is currently on faculty at Dartmouth College.

Though originally from quaint Cape Girardeau, MO, Liesl’s career has taken her well beyond the banks of the Mississippi River. Hailed for her "magnetic presence", she has performed across North America and Europe, appearing at major venues including Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium, Weill Recital Hall, Zankel Hall, The Musikverein, The Kravis Center, The Kennedy Center, and performs actively as a soloist having worked with several orchestras in the United States.

As an acclaimed master of American roots music, mandolinist and songwriter Joe K. Walsh knows this better than most.

He’s toured with countless artists, collaborated with other master musicians like Darol Anger and the Gibson Brothers, founded progressive stringband Joy Kills Sorrow in the early 2000s, and is currently on faculty at the prestigious Berklee College of Music.

His new album, “Borderland,” is an exercise in subtlety and careful creation. Turning through songs he wrote, or setting the words of Yeats to music, and picking out instrumental tunes of his own creation, Walsh plays and sings with the kind of ease that comes from years of practice and creation.
