Hello there all ye wonderful friends of Celtic Music, And a special Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful mothers out there;
I hope you all have had a fabulous weekend!
First, thanks so much to everyone who turned out last week for the fiddler Michael Mullen’s Trio of One show! I’m always amazed at the new creative ways he employs the looping technology into traditional music differently at every show… We’ll have him back another time for sure!
But now, as promised, The thunderous grande finale of The Spring Series of Celtic Music Night– THIS TUESDAY NIGHT:
May 10th, 7pm — Molly’s Revenge, Special CD release –full-length concert! The *official* CD release concert to celebrate the band’s brand new album release, “Lift” , The first time the Santa Cruz area will hear the new material and have access to the new album, The FINALE of the Spring Series of Celtic Music Night promises to be epic foot-stomping fun!
Veterans of the Celtic folk world, Celtic band Molly’s Revenge has been touring the festival and performing-arts theater circuit continuously for 16 years running as one of the west coasts most active Celtic groups. Their show of high-energy Celtic dance tunes blended together on bagpipes, penny-whistle, fiddle, guitar, and bodhran has kept audiences stomping their feet and clapping along for years of good times, and this album celebrates the culmination of their cohesion as a group.
Can’t wait to hear a sample?
You can get a FREE DOWNLOAD of a track from the album, just by visiting: http://mollysrevenge.com/ And while there, find out all kinds of other things about the band.
