Live & On Stage...Friday, September 30, Saturday, October 1 and Sunday. Bill Mullen.
Music Starts @ 8pm.

I love playing and seeing the impact I have on people in my audience. In the USA, I watch people as they are transported to places I create by singing them songs from their forefathers, places and experiences they have heard of from their parents or grandparents. They still have an emotional bond to the “old country” where they have never lived, and a piece of their spirit still wants to connect them there. It’s wonderful to see.

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.

Sky in the Road

Live & On Stage...Friday, September 16 & Saturday, September 17, Sky in the Road.  Music Starts @ 8pm.

You could say it was love at first note. When Sky in the Road founding members Daniel Rhiger and Rahmana Wiest, both singers and musicians since childhood, met they were providing back-up vocals and instrumentation for another local singer/songwriter. It quickly became apparent that there was magic in this "harmonic convergence" and Dan and Rah, as they are known by their friends, soon became musical partners and eventually life partners.

In 2010 Erik Killops returned to his hometown of Portland, Oregon after receiving his bachelors degree in Irish Music & Dance at the University of Limerick in Ireland. Shortly after he met recent New Jersey transplant, and bouzouki player, Richie Rosencrans and California native, and uilleann piper, Preston Howard at sessions around Portland. All three were eager to start a project and discovered common interests in regards to traditional music. After a few house gatherings, a weekly performance began at local watering hole the East Burn. In the fall of 2012 flute player Conor O'Bryan moved to Portland from Chico, California and immediately joined the ranks of the band.

Tommy and Tony Dunne have been performing live around the Northwest since the ‘80s. The brothers learned music in grade school by virtue of the good nuns at St. Thomas More with spiritual assistance from Lennon, McCartney, and the Clancy Brothers -- The British invasion meets the Irish uprising!

“Sister” Mary Harvard was let out of the family’s basement and joined the brothers’ musical escapad...es in 2006, contributing her own folk influence, added instrumentation, and part 3 to the buttery tight vocals.

Together the trio provides hours of entertainment, playing a variety of music with an emphasis on Irish folk, a strong emphasis on vocal harmonies, and an even greater emphasis on FUN! Pure entertainment... whether you’re Irish or not!
