    CAMDEN — The SoundCheck series continues Friday, Jan. 26, at 7:30 p.m., when Rakish performs at the Camden Opera House, 29 Elm St. The one-hour concert is sponsored by 40 Paper.  

    Maura Shawn Scanlin, a two-time U.S. National Scottish Fiddle Champion and a winner of the Glenfiddich Fiddle Competition, wields the technical range of an accomplished classical violinist and the deep sensitivity of a traditional musician.

    Conor Hearn, a native to the Irish music communities of Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland, plays guitar for a number of traditional music acts and bands in the Boston area.  
    Their duo takes its name from the traditional Irish tune Rakish Paddy. Rakish explores tunes and songs from Irish and American folk traditions in a way that reflects the duo’s shared interest in and love for chamber and improvised music.
