CELTIC MUSIC EXPANDED

The Equinox Celtic Band

March 3, 2013 – 4:00 p.m.

 

The Equinox Celtic Band has played at dozens of music and cultural festivals throughout the region.  Equinox is made up of six multi-talented musicians: Ryan Fitzgerald, Leslie Gregory, Jean Marie Learman, Dennis Lowe, Kathy Morris, and Vern Pococke. At the Celtic core of the band are traditional pipes, fiddle, flute, whistles, and the concertina. By adding guitars, the mandolin, and Middle Eastern and West African percussion instruments, the band expands an ancient music to new dimensions.  Joy Butler, Director of the Bay Arts Council, comments that “Equinox can bathe you in seemingly effortless melodies one moment and then turn around and amaze you with a ferocious musical barrage of sound and dance the next.”  Equinox Celtic Band performs a range of repertoire from sweet renditions of the familiar “Danny Boy,” “The Irish Washerwoman,” and the tunes of O'Carolan, to hard-driving arrangements of “Ye Jacobites” and “Whiskey in the Jar.”  Learn more about Equinox Celtic Band at the following website: http://www.equinoxtheband.net/.
