celtic music schedule
7:00-8:15: Sheelin Punch is so vibrant and so smooth! It’s Irish fiddling with a kick, just like the good Irish whiskey! Featuring the duo of Jim Mullins and Jenny Allinder.
8:30-10:00: Allie and Ashley Hughes Celtic Duo have a powerful combination and aptitude for traditional Irish music that presents a contemporary flair to traditional Irish music through their modern chord progressions, driving rhythms, and energetic melodies played on guitar, piano, stompbox, flute, and tin whistle.
7:00-10:00: Appalachian Celtic Consort bring “a wee bit o’ the Celtic Isles in the hills of West Virginia” with more instruments and people to play them than are usually allowed upstairs at Little India. Enough talent here to last all night!
7:00-8:15: The Contrarians - A four-piece contra dance band, the Contrarians will be playing their driving brand of genre bending Celtic based music, and original music featuring Paul Epstein on fiddle and foot percussion, John Longwell on mandolin, saxophone and Irish banjo, Andy Park on electric and acoustic guitar, and Will Carter on bass.
8:30-10:00: The Gypsy Stars led by Contrarian fiddler, Paul Epstein will be singing Irish standards like When Irish Eyes Are Smiling and Danny Boy and breaking loose with Irish tunes accompanied by Paula Bickham on accordion and hand drums and Rita Ray on piano.
7:00-8:15: Plaid Clash Dan Carney, fiddle and vocals, and Chris Higgins, bodhran, box, didgeridoo, whistle present a mix of music from time spent in Ireland and Scotland into a high octane performance of dance tunes and songs, with plenty of stories and 'craic' thrown in.
8:30-10:00: Gaelic Pour combine years of session playing and camaraderie that are evident in the versatility and quality of the music that will flow like the drink for which they are named. Look closely and you will see them in other bands throughout the night.
7:00-10:00: All for the Craic (Crack) All for a good time in Gaelic. A devilish merry time to be had by all as an evolving and energetic collection of local players combine their talents in a musical free-for-all under the tent all through the Crawl.
10:00-midnight: Bare Bones…stripped down to just their voices, Bill and Becky Kimmons and Mark Davis create a cloak of beauty with simply amazing three part harmonies that might keep you on the trolley all evening.
