Contemporary Traditional Irish & Folk Music

 

Gallowglass is a lively four-piece band from Bellingham, WA, that plays reels, jigs, and songs rooted in the Irish tradition but     influenced by American sensibilities. You might also hear the odd Québécois fiddle tune, a stray Scottish tune, or possibly a Baltic sounding one from France. Though the repertoire is diverse, the instrumentation is consistent: Irish bouzoukis, mandolin, fiddle, harmonicas, bodhran, and vocals.

Music to dance to, and music to make you joyfully weep.

"Listening to Gallowglass perform, there is no denying the passion and dedication each of these musicians has for traditional music. Not as an archaic form but as a present and living thing. This is music to dance to, sing to, drink and think to. Go see them and may God hold you in the palm of his hand." Scot Casey (from first review)

Last August we featured at Irish & Folk Night in the Boundary Bay Brewery Beer Garden. This is A group dance as led by Irish Dancer Norah McLaughlin.  This is An Dro - Music and Dance from Breton, the Celitc part of France. This was so fun!
