Tickets: $10 in advance (see ticket link on Facebook) - doors open at 6:30pm and show starts at 7pm.
Multi-award winning Brock McGuire Band is fronted by two of Ireland's most celebrated traditional musicians: button accordionist and melodeonist Paul Brock and fiddler Manus McGuire. The band also includes multi-instrumentalist Dave Curley (banjo, mandolin, bodhran, vocals and dance) and acclaimed pianist, composer and arranger Denis Carey.
A beacon of passion and precision, integrity and diversity, Brock McGuire Band is steeped in the Irish musical tradition yet seamlessly incorporates elements from American old time, bluegrass, French-Canadian, and other Celtic traditions to create something accessible, recognizable, beautiful, and entirely unique. This ability is exemplified in the band's most recent album "Green Grass Blue Grass," featuring with 14-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs. American music critic Bill Margeson has hailed the collaboration as a "masterpiece". Learn more about the band and its' talented members: http://brockmcguireband.com/bios/
