Happy March to you, my dear friends of Celtic Music Night at St. Andrew!
The hills are now green from the gentle rain, much like Ireland, and so too are the rafters of every music hall in the state soon to be filled with Celtic music as March Madness and St. Patrick’s Celebrations get underway… And to add to the epic maelstrom in our own way, I am pleased to invite you to this month’s excellent series of music:
THIS March, 2015 — The Celtic Music Night March Madness Series, at St. Andrew is here!
That’s right folks, Celtic Music Night is back, and I’ll be kicking it off this week, fresh from the open road and adventures in St. Louis, MO and points returning, and will soon be joined by many special guests in the weeks ahead, all for your enjoyment! Please read on….
THIS TUESDAY! March 3rd :: 7pm
David Brewer— solo concert featuring bagpipes and whistles, with tunes new & old, and stories of adventures from the open road…
Tuesday March 10th :: 7pm
Stuart Mason–New Trad music project, joined by John Weed on the fiddle. Stuart has been hard at work on a solo album called “Tradition” due out this May featuring a a bevy of old American songs on his unique fretless slothead tackhead banjo–an instrument that evokes the sound of 19th century America, while updating the vintage repertory with a thoroughly modern aesthetic, as well as his beloved 1918 Gibson mandola.
