The Celtic diaspora has many branches, even extending into the furthest reaches of the southern United States. Rhiannon Giddens, of Grammy winning Carolina Chocolate Drop fame, will astound with her deeply soulful vocals, instrumental prowess on fiddle and banjo, and a little Gaelic puirt-a-bheul to top it all off. Paired with Dirk Powell, no stranger to Celtic Colours, their roots music will reach all the way back to the balcony of our venue tonight. Roots run deep with Fergal Scahill and Ryan Molloy and they’ll be bringing pure drop Irish fiddle intricacy to the stage. First generation Scot and proudly Cape Breton fiddler Mairi Rankin and her harp-playing Outside Track band- mate Ailie Robertson will bring those haunting Scottish melodies to the forefront. Mairi’s best of friends and musical compadres Wendy MacIsaac and Mac Morin will bring the tunes, steps, giggles and smiles that only they can provide. Nearby Meal: Apple Glazed Roast Pork Dinner
